What our clients say
"Working with the property team at PDT was a real pleasure and we look forward to embarking on further projects with them moving forward. Craig was approachable and responsive throughout and his extensive legal knowledge and commercial application were invaluable in negotiating some complex and involved issues and to getting the deal to completion. We couldn’t have been happier with the service we received and would recommend PDT without hesitation."

"I have worked with PDT on a number of projects; with Mark Diamond in the corporate team in relation to a share purchase and Craig Burton in the real estate team, initially for a lease but also for the exit of a lease and purchase of our own offices. Mark, Craig and everyone involved in the work they did for us has always been a pleasure to work with. Their ability to breakdown the essence of any agreement to something that is easily understandable was great. I am always confident of being in good hands when working with PDT. They are professional and responsive throughout the process to ensure transactions keep momentum and they are representing us to the highest standard. I will continue to use PDT when any legal representation is required."

I would recommend them wholeheartedly"

The attention to detail was impressive and I considered it a First Class Service. I have also experienced support from the Employment Team for legal advice and again received nothing but excellent back up during changes to our business structure. I would thoroughly recommend PDT Solicitors for Legal Support to one’s business."

"We recently used PDT for the negotiation of a new office lease and found the whole process simple, straightforward and problem-free. Craig displayed a welcome willingness to work with us, not only on the specific details of the transaction, but also in the relaxed way we wished the negotiation to be handled. We will certainly use PDT and Craig again."

"Having worked with Craig (PDT) for many years now. I have pleasure in saying I never looked back, he has always been highly professional, attentive, informative and most importantly accessible. I have challenged him with some impossibly difficult deals and people over the years, of which created major complexity, Craig and PDT never failed to impress me with their resourcefulness and commitment to their clients."
"I have known Craig Burton of PDT Solicitors for the past eleven years and have always utilised their services managing all our legal real estate needs. During this time, Craig and the his team has managed to gain a comprehensive understanding of our business, its culture and our strategic goals. I believe it is this formula that has enabled PDT to work well within our business and advise the Company accordingly on all its legal property requirements. We have always received a first class service, never more so than recently when we completed a new lease enabling us to relocate our Head Office to Watchmoor Park in Camberley. I can confirm that PDT operate with great integrity, are extremely dedicated and have always found them to be entirely honest and considerate. Furthermore, PDT has demonstrated a huge level of intelligence, leadership and judgement and I would highly recommend their services."

"Thank you for acting for me, regarding the negotiations and creation of a new lease, at my property on the Gillmans Industrial Estate in Billingshurst. I found the whole process much smoother and quicker than I expected. Especially as you had quite a wait initially for the new tenants lawyers to return from holiday! The whole process was thorough, ensuring that the only accepted changes to the lease by the new tenants lawyers were those that did not weaken the lease for me. You also managed to have the lease completed within 48 hours once time became a major factor. I am pleased that I was recommended to PDT solicitors, will do the same myself and use you again when required. Thank you."
