David Beveridge, Managing Director of Macdonald Henderson tells us how his teams track record brought law award win.

Our firm has strength in depth and experience. It boasts a strong track record in advising on management buyouts, mergers & acquisitions (many with an international/cross border context), private equity, banking and finance.

In December 2018, the Corporate Team of Macdonald Henderson won “Corporate Team of the Year” at the Law Awards of Scotland (in association with HRC recruitment). This was the third year in a row in which the firm has been shortlisted in this category (winning in 2016, runner up in 2017).

The corporate team continues to grow organically with the recruitment of Michelle Rae from MacRoberts and the appointment of two trainees to the corporate team in 2017, Colm Kerr and in April 2018, Calum Thornton, ensuring that the firm’s heritage as a business dedicated to nurturing new talent is maintained.

Though based in Glasgow, the client base of the team is drawn from all regions of Scotland and beyond.

But this is far from a parochial, Scottish-centric practice. But as the team’s transactional experience highlights, this is a firm which is equally at home dealing with cross border transactions, often with significant international aspects.

In the period from 2017 - 2019, the firm’s turnover increased by 35%.

The current pipeline of work and prospective instructions suggests that these trends will indeed continue, though firm is not complacent with regards to the sectoral, macro-economic and political challenges which may yet have an impact in the months and years to come.
