A solicitor more interested in delivering on a deal rather than grandstanding.
Andy Byrne, Jones Realty
We engaged with Aberdein Considine in respect of a proposed commercial property transaction, during this we found David Orr and his team to be friendly, professional and diligent in their dealings. The timetable always looked a challenge with our first meeting being less than 8 weeks prior to the targeted completion date, but they provided us with assurances on delivery and achieved these with the minimum of fuss. In the subsequent weeks they remained readily available for any questions, and are still a friendly reference point for queries we may have today, Aberdein Considine have been a pleasure to deal with.”
Russell Frith, Director, Harlequin Group
Aberdein Considine's overall level of service is 'excellent and cannot be faulted'; 'response times, business acumen and industry knowledge are all exemplary'. Practice head Paul Jennings and associate David Orr, who divide their time between the Edinburgh and Glasgow offices, 'work exceptionally well as a team'.
