What our clients say

  • Ian Maclellan
  • Managing Director, Cloudstream Technology

“I thought I would drop you a quick note to say how happy I was with the support I received from the Real Estate team with respect to the recent disposal of a surplus Office in Leith.

 The team briefed me on the main options and best approach at the start of the engagement and then managed the process from that point forward through to speedy conclusion, without any complexity or fuss. There were a few technical aspects on the journey which Murray was able to propose a smart solution to address which meant that settlement was not delayed.

 As a point of principle, I think it is worth taking the time to send a note when good service is received as it is so easy just to move on to other things given the multiple competing tasks that we find ourselves faced with.”

“I just wanted to briefly touch base to say what a great experience we are having working with your team at GG. The Real Estate Team prepared our office lease and has been fantastic. We are working hard to intro the team to some of our active clients and hope to see this relationship moving from strength to strength. You have also introduced us to Private Client and Employment Teams who we have employed for their various areas of expertise. The level of service they have provided us with has been fantastic and they have all been an absolute pleasure to work with. We had some tricky employment issues and you ensured that the entire process went as smoothly as it could, which we are so grateful for.”
