Review in Legal 500 2021
‘Everyone we have worked with from Rix & Kay were outstanding. They were not only exceedingly knowledgeable and professional, but personable and attuned to the unique nature of our needs. They took into account both the legal aspects of our work together as well as the business drivers. I can’t imagine it being done better anywhere else.’
‘Kathryn Paisley was a joy to work with. Kathryn supported us through complex agreements and negotiations and was available at any time to help us. We couldn’t have wished for a safer pair of hands to guide us through a process that we had never been through before. I can’t recommend Kathryn enough.’
