What Mignonette says:

Some Case Studies of work Mignonette has undertaken

I enjoy working with businesses that are operated by the individuals or the families of the individuals who built the business into what it is when my services are required. The passion and familiarity with the business, its direction and culture enables plans to be put into action and goals achieved. To work alongside individuals who are invested in and dedicated to the project at hand is a great energy to work with.

Understanding my client’s vision and requirements are fundamental to providing the desired results, therefore I ensure that each client is given the time and attention that they need. I have been fortunate to work with different businesses with varying scales of complexity in their instruction. This diverse expose has provided a sturdy starting point to work with new matters to best implement unique and complex instructions.

If I were not a solicitor I would be:
