  • Tom helped me throughout the whole process of selling my property and purchasing a new one. He was always at the end of the phone if needed to answer every question.

  • As a small group of residents, finding ourselves in urgent need of representation in a very unusual land purchase situation, we were very impressed by Tom Marshall’s ability to provide fast and effective advice. He was clear in all his communication, keeping us all regularly informed during a fast moving situation. We would highly recommend him and Debenhams Ottaway for exceptional customer service.

  • Tom dealt with a sale of the three residential properties and associated land for me.  The sale had the potential to be problematic and time-consuming, however Tom was able to deal with all the queries and issues that arose efficiently and commercially, leading to the sale completing with minimal disruption.

  • Tom dealt with the purchase of a high-value property purchased in the Crown Estate, Oxshott, which was purchased from a famous Premier League Footballer.

    I am a property investor and retailer. I have used many different law firms but I have found Tom always provides me with the service that I require and he takes the time to answer or return my calls in a prompt manner. The transaction was not the easiest to deal with but Tom provided advice to complete the transaction swiftly.
