This:
{"AllResults":"[{\"Company\":\"testcompany\"}]"}

Open in new window

is a JSon object with an AllResults property of type string and value "[{\"Company\":\"testcompany\"}]".
For it to be an array, you should not surround it with quotes:
{"AllResults":[{"Company":"testcompany"}]}

Open in new window

No quotes, and no backslash, around arrays. Only around strings.
{"AllResults":[{"Company":"testcompany"}]}
