What our clients say

Account unfreezing


Dear Jonathan and Anita

I would like to thank you for the excellent and most effective work carried out on my case. After over twenty-five years spent working in finance without having any adverse dealing with a bank, it came as a surprise to have my corporate account frozen by a major UK bank. It would seem that a specialized software had blocked the account, and bank staff were unwilling to discuss the matter or even hear any of my explanations. After two months, this started to cause serious damage to my business, and the prospect of my reputation being irreparably tainted was most distressing. I appreciated your thorough due diligence and deep knowledge of the way banks operate. With your help, in less than three weeks the account was successfully unfrozen. In a field where both financial institutions and regulators are under resourced and lack proper understanding of the issues involved, your expertise and reputation provided a swift and satisfactory resolution to all parties involved. Having you on my side provided the bank and the regulator enough comfort and reassurance to close the case and release the funds.

Last but not least, I enjoyed working with you, I found your approach friendly and straightforward. I would highly recommend you to anyone who currently has or will have similar issues in the future.

Legislative Change


Subject: Thank you!

Dear Jonathan & Anita,

With much of last week being dominated by the verdict and our subsequent relief, we all wanted to take the time to send you our personal thanks for everything you have done in your capacity as legal representatives for [Albert].

As a family we were very worried about the seriousness of the allegations made against [Albert], and it was therefore our highest priority to ensure that he had the best legal representation. Coming across the details of Bright Line Law via an online search ultimately proved to be one of our best decisions. From our first meeting, it was clear to us that with your wealth of experience and strategic focus we were in safe hands.

Whilst it was a tremendously worrying and daunting experience, we appreciated your sound legal advice and you keeping us informed of every detail throughout the process. We prepared ourselves for the fact that with any court process there may be unpredictable moments, but we felt entirely reassured by your being on hand to answer questions/update us.

We are immensely grateful for everything you have done for us as a family. We acknowledge and appreciate all your efforts – the strategy formulation, the brilliant advocacy you provided, and your excellent client care. We cannot thank you enough.

With best wishes,

[Albert’s Family]
