Our clients have kindly given us the following testimonials:
Paula and I met in those early years and it was through Paula that we received a large donation £100k through a trust following a trip which we shared together as part of a STT conference in India in 2010 to see the impact that trafficking was having on vulnerable communities.
This gift was groundbreaking to STT. We used it over the following year to launch a new STT website which included the first iteration of mapping community information, which was again groundbreaking within a charity at the time. This was the STT footprint that has grown and developed into our tech enabled, data driven approach with a number of significant technology global partners including our primary long term partnership with IBM.
Paula joined with STT at this early stage, believing in our approach and pioneering in spirit.

I have known Paula Felton for thirteen years and as a women in business I have always been so impressed that through her professionalism and hard work become she became no only an incredible accomplished lawyer but set up her own firm in an area of London dominated by male lawyers and barristers. I also know that it hasn’t been an easy journey and Paula has had to overcome many personal and professional barriers to achieve this success.
I come from a commercial background but ten years ago decided to change direction and support our communities. I created Circle Collective a charity to support unemployed young people from deprived parts of London into permanent employment. Paula has always been interested in the young people and how the charity worked, after a couple of years the charity started to struggling financial, out of the blue Paula arranged a donation that actually saved the charity from closing down. Since then we have gone on to support over five hundred young people into permeant jobs and financial independence, all of which wouldn’t have happened unless Paula had not had the insight to see how the charity was changing the lives of these amazing young people who are our future and decided to give us that financial boost at such a difficult and key time in our journey.
Circle collective was supporting young people in Westminster at the time of the donation we now support young people from Hackney, Lewisham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Greenwich and Islington.

Paula proactively identified Historic Royal Palaces as the ideal beneficiary for a bequest of £250k. This was invested in the transformation of Kensington Palace which, since its completion in 2012, has benefited more than 2m visitors, thousands of students at local schools and a diverse range of people from local community groups who would not ordinarily have visited the palace. This investment also reflected the donor’s interest in history and heritage. Since that donation, Paula has kept in touch with Historic Royal Palaces and has supported our fundraising with occasional pro bono advice on legacies.
Historic Royal Palaces is an independent charity that looks after the Tower of London, Hampton Court Palace, the Banqueting House, Kensington Palace, Kew Palace and Hillsborough Castle. We help everyone explore the story of how monarchs and people have shaped society, in some of the greatest palaces ever built. We raise all our own funds and depend on the support of our visitors, members, donors, sponsors and volunteers.

I have known and worked with Caroline many times over the years. She is professional, hard working and extremely reliable at all times. Not only have I personally instructed Caroline on multiple occasions, but I also have friends and colleagues who now regard her as their lawyer (sic) of choice. Simply one of the best in the business and I always know the transaction will be swift with Caroline’s no-nonsense approach. A truly valuable professional that I always look forward to working with.
John Wright has dealt with all of our legal matters for many years, along with Caroline Spector and Lauren Lambourne.
As property developers in Central London, sometimes the ability to think quickly and act decisively is the difference between a deal happening or not. For this reason I have often referred some of my trusted friends to John and his team.
It is worth mentioning that because of John’s experience of the Central London market, and the resulting relationships that he has established not only with estate agents but other lawyers alike, I have come to rely upon John and the team more and more over the years.
I have worked with Lauren a number of times and have felt very comfortable entrusting my clients with her. Lauren provides a great service; proving to have excellent knowledge in her field and a passion for the job. The feedback I have had numerous times are she’s contactable, approachable and clear. I have no hesitation to continue to work with Lauren and Felton’s for the very best client outcome.
We have always recommended Lauren to act on behalf of our clients. She’s proactive and always at the other end of the phone to speed the process up, saving us invaluable time on progressing sales. Any file we have with her comes with the peace of mind that it will proceed through to completion with a very happy client. Excellent service and highly recommended.
