Our client promise

  • "Paul Jennings has deep experience in commercial real estate work, regularly handling high-value matters relating to investment property and developments. According to a client, Paul's greatest attributes are his pragmatism and judgement - he is eloquently candid and his advice is speedy, rational and strategic."

  • "I wish to express our utter satisfaction and delight in the way that you and your colleagues handled the recent deal. Given that the deadline was tight to the point of unrealistic, we were so impressed by the manner in which you concluded the transaction. Your calm and diligent professional approach made it a stress free process for us."

  • "One of the smoothest transactions I have been involved in for a long time due to the Aberdein Considine Legal team being more interested in delivering the deal rather than grandstanding. Really appreciate your efforts and look forward to working with you again."

  • The team cut through all the legal jargon and keep everything simple. As a client we were felt like we were treated like the most important client they had and not just another account or another number.

  • Paul Jennings treats the relationship as a partnership and not as a billable client.

  • We took great comfort from the partner-led approach and at no point did we feel the deal was even slightly off-track. This deal was the biggest once for our business to date, but was probably the least stressful thanks to Paul Jennings and his diligent team.

  • Paul Jennings is a leader in his field. He could sit around the top table at any firm in the UK and his commercial real estate knowledge, and acumen, are second to none.’

  • I deal with a number of different solicitors and the over-riding benefit of using AC is their commercial attitude to getting deals done. Too many solicitors play the game of scoring points off each other and worrying about issues that have no real commercial gravitas, AC make sure that the I’s are dotted and T’s crossed, but not to the detriment of commercial realisation.

  • Paul Jennings is the anchor to our legal work. Paul is fully immersed and appraised of the situation as the transactions progress and I have confidence that he will engage when it is appropriate to expedite matters.
