"Speed, accuracy, responsiveness, kindness. Strong team with great reputation. Talitha is a conscientious and service-focused lawyer." - Legal 500 2024

Ben Singh, Chief Operating Officer, Clean Energy Transition LLP: ''Talitha Degwa advised our firm on our application for a sponsorship licence and our subsequent sponsorship of a visa for a skilled worker. Talitha was a pleasure to work with throughout the process, as she was highly responsive and very well organised. Not only did she show a deep understanding of the relevant rules, she was able to provide us with succinct legal advice and she was sensitive to our commercial goals and preferences.''

Private client: ''Thanks to Talitha I feel sure in the all of the process. She provided me with all explanation and requests of essential information and clearly presented the process. I felt much more easy during the stressful process with Talitha`s support. I would use her service again and definitely recommend!''

Dr Petar Milin:''Talitha immediately struck me as extremely competent. Overall, there was no single aspect of Talitha's service that was not excellent; from her patience and pleasant ways of communication to swift, spot-on diagnosis of how the issue should be addressed. Naturally, under her supervision and advice, our application was successful after the first submission of additional required documents.

As someone who has PhD in Psychology, as well as training in psychotherapy and counselling during my undergraduate studies, I think I can say this with some professional credibility: Talitha truly excels in putting her clients at ease, in effortlessly gaining their trust with a well-tempered, calming way of communication, capable of both listening and giving the right advice at the right time.

I will always wholeheartedly recommend Talitha's professional services as I myself would always put the trust in her capable hands again.''
