What I Offer…

The firm specialises in providing advice on divorce, separation and related family issues, with particular emphasis on financial disputes involving complex business interests.

Penny and Mike are a unique lawyer / accountant combination with considerable experience in dealing with family matters. Their combined talents offer clients out of court settlements and meticulous preparation for contested hearings.

The niche practice serves local, national and expatriate clients.

Penny Raby & Co. has retained the Law Society’s prestigious Lexcel quality mark each year since 2004, emphasising the commitment to the highest standards of client care and service. And the firm was delighted to be awarded the inaugural Worcestershire Law Society award for Best Family Firm of the Year 2014. Quite an achievement for a sole practitioner firm !

 

Why I’m good at what I do…

Mike qualified as a Chartered Management Accountant in 1984

He had an early career in a wide range of accountancy and financial management roles with major PLCs such as British Leyland, Black & Decker and Unigate. He progressed to a number of private ventures, mainly involved in distribution and logistics in the period 1990 – 1996.

He established the initial administration and back office systems for Penny Raby & Co. and as the firm developed a niche practice in money cases, he joined as full time consultant in 1998. He was instrumental in achieving Lexcel status for the firm in 2004.

Mike plays an active role in the Pershore business and social community, is an enthusiastic team member of the very popular 4Networking group in Leamington Spa, and in his spare time (!) is Chairman and promoter of the Las Mimosas Beach Club in Mijas Costa, Malaga.

Yet still finds time to devote to his lifelong passion for GOLF ! Handicap constantly 9.9 .. just into single figures

And finally … Penny and Mike are happily married (to each other) and have two adult children, two grandchildren and a certain dog.

Member Testimonials

  • Mike is the epitome of the 'force of nature' expression. A terrific 4Ner and a superb Group Leader for Cheltenham - getting the best out of all around him. An all round good guy who does nothing half-heartedly. I have not had need to use his professional services, but would not hesitate to do so.
  • I appealed for help on the forum about getting bogged down with a Consent Order and Mike was straight on to offer advice and support. He was generous with his time and came across as a genuinely decent person. Thank you.
  • I don't know Mike, but I needed some personal help and asked on the forums here. Within no time at all, Mike had responded, called me twice and gave me great advice without hesitation. Solid guy and I wish I knew more Mike's in the world like this one.
