“I can’t recommend Matthew highly enough. He provided clear and concise advice during particularly difficult Director Disqualification proceedings. He managed to get me leave to continue being a Director of 3 companies which was a huge relief to me”.
Dom Kamara, Director
“Matthew has been fantastic on both a professional and personal level throughout a prolonged and sometimes demoralising director dispute. His pragmatic and goal oriented approach combined with his wealth of experience and enthusiasm made the process much less painful. Having dealt with counts of lawyers in my career I will say that Matthew Howat stands tall above his peers, he delivered on all counts and I would not hesitate in recommending his services”.
Moritz Chrambach, Director/Shareholder
“We love HA. Great advice and high standard of work”.
Rik Snarey, Phoenix Resourcing Services
“Matthew and Rebecca were a blessing to work with, they were personable, at the same time they were very professional. They were reachable by phone or e-mail and in person; they were not robots like some solicitors are. They achieved over our expectations on our case. We are forever thankful.”
Jean-Michel & Parvin
“In the past Niki has produced Contracts of Employment and Work Legislation for us. We have been pleased with the effectiveness of the contracts and as such sought to use Niki to update and carry out an audit of our Contracts of Employment. The revisions were completed efficiently and supported by supporting advice on legislation. The up to date versions were made on time for a set fee.”
Director of Elgood Industrial Ltd

“Howat Avraam Solicitors’ proposition to effectively be our in-house legal team was precisely what we needed as a start-up company. From Company registration to a Shareholders’ Agreement, Company Secretarial duties, advice on Board structure, commercial contracts from office leases to aircraft acquisition and, remarkably, Directors’ and Staff employment contracts, all under one roof! They are totally professional and easy to deal with and I believe that this is the future of legal support. I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“From the first minute of the first meeting I had with Matthew I knew I was in good hands. His steadfast support and unrivalled expertise was above and beyond anything I had experienced in working with other firms. The attention to detail and professionalism I was shown afforded me an invaluable confidence that I was lacking before I had approached them. Working with HAS Solicitor’s turned a stressful situation into an enjoyable process which led to an ideal result. Mat and Niki were an absolute pleasure to work with and their first class service has gained them a client for life.”
