What Our Clients Say
Perfect job, excellent service
We have utilised Scott Roberts since 2015 and I have always found them to be very helpful, supportive and knowledgeable. In 2020 our Account Manger changed to Ben, and like with any change there is always a concern that the service will alter. I should not have worried at all, Ben is excellent at his job, he offers support and advise, is friendly and professional. Ben is an absolute superstar.
Straightforward, effective advice with prompt support and always going the extra mile.
Fantastic service from start to finish.
Great service very professional and value for money
Scott Robert have been absolutely amazing from start to finish and worth every penny. They were always there to answer any concerns that I had and this week we have just been authorised by the FCA. I was able to focus on other aspects of my new venture that required attention whilst Scott Roberts did the heavy lifting in the background. Harvey Lewis, the wonderful chap that had been assigned to look after my application, was absolutely phenomenal and is an asset to Scott Roberts. I couldn’t be any happier with the service provided.
I found Alexander extremely professional easy to talk to and contact very happy with the service and amazing how quick and easy Alexander sorted everything
Bearing in mind the time and replies needed very good value for money and very happy. Ewan always replied quickly and we felt in safe hands.
SR were superb. Couldn’t have asked for a better service. 10x better than the high priced law firm we’d been using. Very happy customers
I have had the pleasure of utilising the expertise provided by Scott Robert for a number of years. My previous account manager was brilliant, professional, attentive and super to work with. I was doubtful that anyone could live up to such high standards; until I was introduced to our new account manager Ben. Ben is equally brilliant, professional, wonderful to work with -and always goes the extra mile, absolutely excellent all-round!
Our contact Ben has been a huge help to our business, he is professional, knowledgeable and nothing is ever too much trouble for him. Ben responds to all questions in a timely manner. We have really enjoyed working with Scott Roberts over the last 12 months.
Ewan responded quickly to any questions/matters however trivial they were and did so in a professional manner. I would recommend Scott Robert to anyone having any business with the FCA as they make an otherwise overly complicated process easy. Thank you.
