  • After a lengthy and drawn out business purchase, I’m so glad to have come across Paul Summers. Despite never having met (located interstate but needing a WA based solicitor) Paul treated us like long time clients and looked after us right throughout. We are so grateful – thank you!

    Erin de Angelis
  • Absolutely blown away by Paul Summers. Despite being new to property development and not knowing a lot about Shareholders/Joint venture Agreements etc he took me seriously and invested his time to help and guide me in the right direction. Other lawyers, I called just put me in the too hard basket. Definitely recommend his service.
