What our clients have to say...




Andrew Honey
IT Development Manager
- Bond Pearce


On the Kestrel remote working, Andrew Honey commented:

"We considered various provision of resource on-site to perform customisations. However, having worked with Donya over a number of years I was confident that the standard and quality of work provided would be more cost-efficient, despite the small overhead and risk of remote work.

– In practice Donya working remotely was not an issue, especially as we were happy to provide here with a copy of the database before and after the initial test upgrade to work on. As the nature of customisation is to deploy the changes as 'pop' scripts, it is easy to manage version control etc."




Julie Berry, IT Director
Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP


"Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP recently upgraded our our practice management system. As well as a technical version upgrade, we took the opportunity to cleanse the system of various customisations. The Project Manager provided by Kestrel not only showed superb Project Management skills but their accountancy and Aderant skills were obviously excellent. The above along with the additional support and resources provided by Kestrel ensured our project was delivered on time and on budget.
A complete success."




Siddhartha Mankad
Director Operations
- Boodle Hatfield


On the relationship with Kestrel, Siddhartha Mankad commented:

“The consultants from Kestrel are not only effective and knowledgeable in the product set, but also extremely easy to work with and have integrated into being an extension of our core team”




Tim Hyman,
IT Director - Taylor Wessing


had the following to say about Kestrel Business Solutions:

“Kestrel bring a wealth of experience to the table. Their unique position of having worked with most PMS systems whilst remaining independent results in not only a quality service but fresh thinking too. In short - good people to work with’.”





Andrew Chalkley
Chief Executive
- Boyes Turner


“Having grown rapidly during the last 5 years, we needed to take a fresh look at our IT strategy. Alex Young at Kestrel was a natural choice as a consultant with considerable experience of IT strategy, management and practice in leading law firms. That experience coupled with his pragmatic and common sense approach enable him within 20 days to produce a full report setting out clear recommendations as to the strategy and structure we should adopt for the future. We could only have achieved this in such a short space of time by working with people who understand the demands and need of a modern legal practice."
