What my client says about me

I would like to highly commend Slater Heelis for the thorough and timely job they did in supporting Didsbury CE and West Didsbury CE with our recent conversion to Academy status. Slater Heelis were approachable, supportive and incredibly knowledgeable about the whole process. They met with key school staff and members of the Academy Trust regularly and always kept us informed of their progress. The whole conversion was managed with the minimum of fuss and the support , advice and legal instruction we received from Slater Heelis was a key reason for this.
