We would like to thank you for your research and diligence in the presentation of this matter for our consideration and you can be assured that it will be given all the attention it duly deserves.


This sentence is an example of #periphrasis#. It is a meandering and over-worded sentence. The content of the sentence is also a distraction because in the end it implies that no action will result from the presentation.
