You guys were breathtakingly terrific these past 2 weeks. Jonathon - I always knew you were very good. I know now how wrong I was. You are not good, you are supreme. Arezou - I’ve known you briefly only. Your professionalism, thoroughness, mastery and smiling diligence throughout and on your personal sunny weekends too are so so impressive. And such wonderful people to boot. We are very privileged to have you as our lawyers.
I would just like to convey my sincere thanks to all concerned for your assistance in the acquisition of AFS. I have been very impressed, but not surprised, with the way you and your colleagues have dealt with this transaction. As you are probably aware we have a long association with Paris Smith and I am still in touch with many of the people I have previously dealt with. I look forward to continuing to work with you all in the future.
From the outset Jonathon Roy and the team at Paris Smith have been a pleasure to work with. They proved very quickly they were the right team for the job and that allowed me the time to focus on the commercial elements of the deal. I've already recommended them to others and would have no hesitation in using them again.
Despite being told that we should use London lawyers for the sale of SHB we decided to stick with Paris Smith whom our family have dealt with since the 1950s. We found that they reacted quickly and efficiently to the many issues that arose out of a process of creating new companies, transferring shares and properties and finally selling SHB. The purchaser used London lawyers and Paris Smith more than proved themselves to have been the best choice for us.
The Millbrook Group have enjoyed a longstanding relationship with Paris Smith. The Paris Smith team on this transaction, led by Jonathon Roy, were professional and dedicated in the legal assistance they provided to enable us to achieve an extremely satisfactory conclusion to a complex and intensive process.
Professional, responsive and practical support from Jonathon and Arezou throughout the recent sale process of my business. I have had excellent service and advice throughout the seventeen plus years that I have been a client of Paris Smith and this transaction has been no different. I can't recommend them and the PS team highly enough.
