Testimonials and reviews for LGFL Ltd
I have been dealing with LGFL for over 12 months, after a friend recommended them. I have been most impressed by Anne Leiper’s attention to detail and prompt actions in all aspects of her contact with me. She has also recommended a barrister with whom we are working on the case.
As my first foray into any kind of litigation, the experience, whilst a difficult one to deal with, has been eased by the advice received. Fees are sent promptly, are well structured and easy to understand. I have no hesitation in recommending LGFL to others in a similar predicament.
INTERVENOR CASE, Hampshire
You are fabulous, I only wish I had found you sooner. We talk of alchemists but rarely in the same breath as solicitors but you are the rare individual where this is possible. To provide such a professional, intelligent and genuine service with such a moral and child-centred ethos has been life affirming. My case was historic, complicated and emotional but after years of confusion there is finally some order. With that chaos now gone, there is finally space to step forwards with greater confidence.
Mother, Complex private Children Act proceedings
Rita and LGFL were recommended to me by a good friend to help me resolve a dispute between my ex-partner and I regarding co-parenting and access my son. Right from the outset, I knew I was in safe hands. Rita inspired confidence and I was briefed every step of the way with sound advice and recommendations. Rita always added a personal touch that made me feel like a person, rather than a business transaction at this emotional and distressing time. Rita, Anne and the team went beyond my expectations to ensure I was briefed and updated every step of the way, and were fast and efficient. In court, Rita was very well prepared, assertive but courteous, and added the right amount of gravity to my situation that helped set the tone for a favourable outcome for my son and I. I would not hesitate to recommend her, or her company. Rita - thank you so much for everything.

Legal 500, 2020 edition
Anne has represented me on four occasions, twice in matrimonial settlements, a financial matter, and a child residency case. Her knowledge of matrimonial law and understanding of all family matters coupled with her tireless work ethic sets her apart from her peers. She has been totally professional in every situation and has always achieved a successful outcome on my behalf.
Anne Leiper was supportive and professional at all times. I was always assured that she was constantly working in my best interests and she was never afraid to deal with difficult or contentious issues in a forceful but analytical manner. She has excellent contacts with other professionals including barristers but was transparent when considering costs. I would have no hesitation in recommending her and her colleagues to anyone who needed legal help.
Petitioner Wife/ Financial Case
LGFL was recommended to me by a friend and I have not been disappointed. The professionalism and knowledge has been invaluable in my position. Every angle and situation has been viewed and advised on. From working with the partners to the wonderful and patient staff in the office, LGFL has been a real stabiliser in what has been a very difficult time; the whole office has been very discrete and approachable. I would not hesitate in recommending them to friends and have done so already.
Petitioner wife/ Financial case
When my divorce began, the best advice I received was to contact Anne Leiper. I cannot speak highly enough having her represent me throughout my divorce proceedings.
From the outset, Anne provided clear expert guidance, enabling me to make informed life changing judgements about issues which would impact on the rest of my life. With her expertise and knowledge, I was able to make financial decisions which would help to secure my financial future. I know that I owe her a great deal.
The high quality professional care and support I received, was not influenced by the fact that I lived in Kent. All queries and advice were always dealt with the utmost efficiency, which reduced my stress levels at key times throughout the divorce process. Every communication was always dealt with in an utterly professional way, with clear and knowledgeable answers, which inspired confidence.
Her calm and confident manner in court made it easier to cope with legal complexities and stressful situations. I always felt well represented by her and she instilled confidence in me, at a time when I had none. Now the divorce is finalised, I can really appreciate how she had helped to secure my future financially.
After being recommended to LGFL, I had Rita Gupta to represent me. Rita helped me through difficult Divorce and child care proceedings. Rita attended a multiple of court hearings with me, not just for my financial settlement but for my children too which included a full CAFCASS report. Rita has a very professional work ethic and took control where control was needed for the benefit of not only myself, but my 3 children too. I would recommend her and her firm LGFL to anyone in a similar situation to myself.
Petitioner Wife in Divorce Proceedings, Financial and Children Act Proceedings
From the onset of the divorce I knew I had the right solicitor when I met Rita, she listened to what I wanted and offered balanced, fair and detailed advice. Throughout the divorce I felt I was kept well informed of the progress, the decisions required and the actions to take. I felt gently guided at every step of the way and therefore I would not hesitate recommending Rita.
Rita was brilliant in helping me with my family dispute case. In a stressful time when outcomes can change lives you want to be sure you have the best advice and representation. Rita was paramount in achieving our result and I wouldn't hesitate in using her services again should the need arise.
Father in Residence/ Children Act Proceedings
Leiper Gupta Family Lawyers helped me tremendously throughout my divorce process. They provided me not only with excellent technical expertise but as importantly, Rita Gupta gave me tremendous support and guidance, whilst at the same time respecting my wishes to settle in the most peaceful and mutually satisfactory and respectful way. Although I was on the other side of the world throughout the proceedings, Rita dealt with all aspects of the process, which resulted in my physical presence never being required. This was a major benefit to me as I the demands on my time were high.
Rita demonstrated great tactfulness and care whilst at the same time helping me to keep my spirits and sense of humour. I was fortunate to come across Leiper Gupta Family Lawyers when I did.
I had no hesitation in recommending Rita to a very close friend when his family situation required specialist lawyers.
High Net Worth Financial Matter
Anne Leiper at LGFL handled financial matters in my divorce. Anne offers a professional, straight talking approach with her expert knowledge in financial settlements ensuring clients are kept fully informed at all times.
Having used a previous law firm with very little results which turned into a long, drawn out, costly procedure with no satisfactory outcome in sight, it was refreshing to have all costs explained in detail from the start with clear explanations of how much to expect to spend depending on one's individual situation and circumstances. Regular invoices were sent allowing me to keep up to date with expenditure.
Advice was clear and concise at all times and I was confident that results would take place in a very short time frame, which they did.
I work for a large well-known corporate organisation and would not hesitate to recommend Anne Leiper for anyone needing legal help in financial divorce proceedings.
