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.”

Jonathon Roy and his team assisted General Estates with the purchase of Whitchurch Bridge Company in February 2019. It was the first time the company had changed ownership in over 200 years and consequently there were a number of quirks to the deal which were fairly unique but all were competently and pragmatically handled by Jonathon and his team to ensure the deal closed smoothly.
- James Percy, Director
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.
- Paul Croll, Selling Shareholder
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.
Mike Street, Founder of SHB Hire
I have to say Amanda is hands down the best corporate lawyer I have ever worked with. She is responsive, commercial, helps guide us in our business development with solid advice and knows exactly what we want from purchasing a business. We hardly need to give any instruction other than “crack on” and she and her team deliver – every time. We are a PE backed, acquisitive, business so we are demanding and demonstrative. She never flinches, takes in her stride and is the epitome of professionalism.

Churches Fire Security Ltd
Your service and dedication to this job has been outstanding – particularly so because of all the problems on the way. Your advice has been highly valued and you have handled the situation with absolute calm. We cannot thank you enough

- Jim Floor, Director
These were key acquisitions for us and enhance the portfolio of services we can now offer to a wide range of sectors. Amanda and the team at Paris Smith became an integral part of our deal team and provided great commercial, practical and legal advice within tight timeframes. We would recommend the team whole heartedly.
- Jim Darragh, Chief Executive
Professional, responsive and practical support from Jonathan and Arezou of Paris Smith 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.
- Trevor Smith
We have benefited from the support of Paris Smith on 4 transactions since 2012 and remain very impressed by their pragmatic and commercially astute approach. What is needed in the heat of negotiating and problem solving is calm and informed guidance plus an ability to stay focussed on what really matters. My personal thanks to Jonathon and the team for delivering success on each occasion.

John Sidnall, Founder & CEO
When we were considering the proposed acquisition of an overseas subsidiary with a relatively complex earn-out structure, we approached our regular solicitors, Paris Smith for some clear guidance on both the due diligence and legal requirements. As we have not been involved in such a transaction previously, working with Jonathon Roy for the first time made this process very simple. Jonathon was especially helpful and provided clear, efficient and prompt advice on our legal and financial position. Working very closely with our Dutch solicitor, Jonathon steered us through the legal documentation and the language barrier to bring the acquisition to a successful conclusion.
