I qualified as a solicitor in 2002 having completed my training with a firm in Nottingham, where I worked as part of the corporate team for a further five years.
Following a round the world trip, I worked with a firm in Reading for a number of years before making the move closer to home and joining Porter Dodson as a partner in 2012.
I have extensive experience on the full range of business services, having worked with a broad range of businesses, ranging from local sole traders, partnerships and small owner-managed companies to larger regional, national and international corporates.
My experience allows me to ease the legal process for my clients. I work with clients to understand their business and objectives so that I may deliver high quality focused advice and solutions relevant to their needs.
I seek to build a strong personal relationship with my clients. I am the direct point of contact on all of my client work and, based in Taunton, I am on hand to meet with clients in any of our offices or at their preferred locations, as and when required.
Diligent and provided an excellent service at a competitive price.
Approachable, easy to understand, clear, extremely quick, good communication. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful.
Evelyn was excellent in her understanding of the situation and always available either by email or phone. A first class service by all and would strongly recommend to anyone.
Exceptional service and value for money - I guess that selling a business is never going to be straightforward but the feeling of reassurance that came from Evelyn's calm approach and obvious experience made the whole process much easier than it could have been.
Everyone was fantastic, working long hours, including weekends and evenings, in order to ensure our commercial sale went through prior to the deadline. Evelyn and her team went above and beyond and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone.
We were guided all through the process of Share Transfer and advised on the decisions agreed and our commitment to the future on those decisions. We were kept informed at all times during the process. Our experience was a very positive one and the service given was to a very high standard. We would use your services again and recommend them to others.
Evelyn Adfield was excellent. She completed the undertaking promptly, kept me informed at all stages and, most importantly, delivered a warm and friendly service.
Very impressed with the service provided by all the contacts I had, in particular Evelyn who I would recommend and have already done so to a number of friends.
First class service and very responsive. Evelyn had extensive knowledge and experience regarding the issues we were dealing with resulting in a very successful conclusion to our transaction. It was reassuring to know that Evelyn and her team were there and able to support us.
We have been delighted by you your team and Porter Dodson.
'Evelyn Adfield was outstanding, she has the gravitas of a major London law firm combined with the communication skills of a friendly in-house law team.'
'Evelyn Adfield has a good knowledge of the area I was interested in, and a good sense of what would work and be acceptable to the other parties.'
Very good, appeared on the ball and answered all questions in a timely manner. Evelyn clearly knew her subject matter.
'We really felt that Evelyn Adfield had our interests at heart and went out of her way to ensure we came out with a fair deal acceptable to all parties.'
"A brilliant effort all round lasting ten months of torment. Everyone kept their heads which was very much appreciated."
I’d just like to say thank you to you and your team for all the help and “handholding“ with the process.
I’d certainly be very happy to recommend you and your firm to other advisers who may go through this themselves.
