“Rubric were not only very personable and reassuring but also always there whenever we needed them. It was the little things that stood out to me – like how they made the complex legal documents feel less intimidating. They took the time to explain everything in a way that I could easily understand, highlighting what was important for me to know and what actions I needed to take.

The service we received was super. We are so grateful for their help and would wholeheartedly recommend them.”
Alexia Mills, Practice Partner, Whiskers Vets

 “My experience with the team at Rubric was nothing but positive. I was kept up-to-date throughout, with no chasing needed, which in my experience is a rarity when working with solicitors.

I would like to say a big thank you to Ryan, Asif and Henry, who worked hard to get the deal over the line. They kept to their timescales and promises, and were available when needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Rubric.”
Chaseview Director and Veterinary Surgeon Nigel Misselbrook

“I couldn’t praise Ryan and Henry enough when I came to sell my veterinary practice. The experience was nothing but positive.

They worked their socks off to get the transaction complete. One aspect that stood out was their update calls every Friday. These check-ins provided invaluable peace of mind, allowing me to stay informed and actively involved throughout the sale. The constant communication was greatly appreciated.

With Rubric, you can expect a team that genuinely cares about your success.”
Graeme Sherriff – Riverside Vets Co-director & Veterinary Surgeon

“The team at Rubric did a fantastic job for us. Ryan, Asif and James kept in close contact throughout the purchase process offering invaluable guidance and advice.

They even accommodated the additional complication that we were on holiday in Italy for the first part of the process! Thanks everyone.”
Mel Weatherall – The Oxford Cat Clinic

“The Rubric team went above and beyond for the sale of my practice, which wasn’t a straightforward one. It was their creative solutions and the way they really listened and responded to our needs that truly made a difference. We continue to work with them today and wouldn’t consider turning to anyone else for legal advice.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication.”
Edward Pettifer – Director and Veterinary Surgeon
