Humphries Kirk has been advising senior personnel at Hamworthy Combustion Group for more than fifteen years. In that time our international reputation has steadily grown and we are now rightly regarded as one of the foremost authorities in combustion technology. There is no doubt that Humphries Kirk has played a key role in our international success

- Rex Badgley, commercial director, Hamworthy Combustion

To say that Alphonse Mucha was a tremendous influence in the world of art and fashion is something of an understatement. Fantastically talented and also commercially very aware, he certainly knew what people liked and I think that’s one of the reason why his work still resonates with a modern audience. With such a disparate catalogue of work and now with a world-wide market, it’s important that Mucha’s heritage is protected and the team at Humphries Kirk has been invaluable in helping us ensure that Alphonse Mucha’s designs are protected for future generations to enjoy.

- John Mucha, director, Mucha Limited

Having recently started my own business, it was important to find the right premises in the right location. I needed to make sure that the lease I was taking on was to my advantage and wasn’t going to turn into a nightmare, so I went to Humphries Kirk. They helped review the lease and carried out all the background checks to make sure that what I was signing was good for me and my business. A great service. I couldn’t have done it without them.

- Joanna Davies, owner, The Gilded Teapot

It is safe to say that in business things do not always go to plan and when I found myself in a situation beyond my previous commercial experience, I called upon the expertise of Humphries Kirk’s commercial team in Poole. They quickly clarified the situation, appraised me of all the options and negotiated an outcome in my favour. I cannot thank Humphries Kirk enough.
