“I’ve used MKB Law on two separate occasions; and I can say that they have provided me with expert and timely guidance and management of my employment / contractual dispute issues. Suzanne Keenan and Amy Collins are extremely knowledgeable in employment law and their great work and communication was absolutely essential in reaching a successful resolution of my case. I can safely recommend them to anyone who needs expert help with a work-related legal issue.”

Mr B – Jan 2021

Suzanne Keenan was outstanding in every way and extremely knowledgeable in employment law. When I reached out to her, I had almost given up, but she went that extra mile to help me and am very glad she did. She is a wonderful genuine person, who has a personal way with her whilst being very professional. I would gladly recommend Suzanne and her team to anyone needing employment advice and would tell them not to think twice about considering anyone else. Thank you for everything.”
