“I enlisted Davenport Solicitors and in particular Vandana to help. Vandana was quick and supportive through the process of contract offers, negotiations and making sure I have all the relevant legal documentation in place to take on my new employee. In addition she helped me make sure that I also considered aspects which I completely forgot about. Namely pensions, career development, employee benefit, termination policy, appraisal process etc. I would highly recommend the service of Vandana and Davenport Solicitors, if not only to look at your current HR processes to make sure they are fit for purpose”.
Immigration Sponsorship Licence Advisement
“We recently found ourselves pressed for time to prepare for the pre-sponsorship licence audit by the home office. We had retained an immigration solicitor for the application process, but we found them to be unorganised, unknowledgeable and unaccomodating, feeling underprepared, we contacted Davenport Solicitors two days before our scheduled audit and they put us in touch with Jayanti. She offered to do a last minute mock audit the day before the home office visit. Jayanti was extremely professional and detailed. She took the time to explain exactly what would happen in the audit. She reviewed our current systems and processes and made suggestions for improvement. She provided materials to help us prepare for what the home office would look for. She brought up many points to be aware of in our responsibilities that our previous solicitor had not. Subsequently, we had a very successful audit with the Home Office, and our licence was granted the next day. Jayanti understood how important it was to obtain the sponsorship licence for our business to be successful. She is extremely valuable asset for anyone who needs assistance in immigration matters”.
KSP (Khaitan Sud & Partners)
“We have a long standing relationship with the Firm. The Firm understands our business and the industry. Throughout our association, the Firm has advised and guided us in our best interests providing innovative legal solutions on issues pertaining to Corporate & Commercial, Project Financing and Conflict Resolution. We value their attention to detail and ability to draft precise legal documents. The Partners are approachable and their professionalism and thoroughness is exemplary. We hope to continue working with them.“We have been engaging KSP in various matters. As our lead Counsel, they have successfully represented us on various forums with utmost professionalism and commitment. We appreciate the responsiveness of the lawyers at KSP in delivering pragmatic legal advice. The subject matter expertise and astuteness of Partners is commendable. We highly recommend KSP for dispute resolution, legal compliances and litigation management strategy.”

Customary private laws have effectively ordered human affairs pre-dating state laws, and formal commercial and criminal laws. Certain events, such as those around marriage and contracts, are recognised as legal acts in all societies even in those considered as primitive. Law is an evolutionary systemic process involving the
experiences of many people narrated and passed on to generations through fables, stories and parables. Law is the natural outcome of people living and working together. For millennia, people have used stories to make sense of the world; as a way of illustrating right from wrong. Stories have been used to record important events
and facts of a major occurrence. They depict patterns of human behaviour and experience. Stories, both ancient and modern, are still relevant today. The answers to our contemporary problems can often be found by looking at historical references. It has been said that “law is essentially discovered, not made”. We take this opportunity to introduce you to our firm, its practice areas and our approach of providing simple solutions to our clients.
