  • Commercial Services

    “Quick response time to address issues at hand; Advice that is meaningful and easy to understand; Friendly and communicative staff; Fees that are reasonable for the work undertaken; Small team focus as opposed to dealing with a myriad of people in a large organisation”

    Brett Rubin – Senior Executive, Panavision Asia Pacific

    “Firstly, the team understands my business and has put effort into building a relationship. They are always responsive and happy to have a chat on any topic at a formative stage, rather than just react when something goes wrong. We get pragmatic advice which is actionable in a commercial context. I know I have direct access to a partner who knows our business so well……. it’s like talking to an internal member of our team. Historically, we have used Atkinson Vinden primarily on employment matters. I now consider them as a true business partner so we have rewarded this by engaging the team on transactional activity that we would traditionally send to a Tier 1 City firm”

    John King – CEO, Cirrus Media

    “The advice from AV is reliable and therefore beneficial. AV always look out for our best interests and the whole atmosphere at AV is both professional and friendly. The people are really nice and there’s always a good feel about the place”

    “I think the service Atkinson Vinden provides is excellent in all ways. They offer sound expertise and counsel, are good listeners, easy to reach, and they speak in jargon-free, plain English”

    Robyn Sefiani – Group MD, Sefiani Communications

    “Our company has used Atkinson Vinden over many years and across a range of commercial matters. We have always been provided with a high level of service and good advice. I have no hesitation in recommending Atkinson Vinden to other businesses for property and general commercial transactions and advice.

    “Just wanted to send you this email now that the three properties have been sold – all done and dusted! And I particularly wanted to say what a great team you have – Michael and Suzanne were terrific to deal with – professional and delightful at all times. And of course even though Miranda was our ‘go to’ last year with regard to my Dad – she is also worthy of praise! (I have since put two lots of friends in touch with Miranda and she is handling their Estate Planning and all are very happy). And, I would have no hesitation in recommending all of them in future….and you Chris, without doubt, as always!”
