Client Testimonials

Lorraine Parrott, Managing Director of Oban Express Parcel Service Limited:

“Oban Express instructed Macdonald Henderson for the first time this year, the firm being jointly instructed with our accountants to effect the incorporation of the business from a partnership to a limited company. In all honesty, the process was far more complicated and challenging than initially foreseen, but I was impressed by the steady and clear attention to all aspects of the transaction shown by Macdonald Henderson. I found their approach to be direct, understandable and exceptionally responsive. I wish the firm very well at the Awards, from what I’ve learned of the firm, Macdonald Henderson deserves recognition as a leading advisor to family business”.

William McPherson, Managing Director of LetMeRepair UK Limited:

“Over the past five years, Macdonald Henderson has acted as our company solicitors and has supported us with a number of aspects such as HR and trade sale.  In this period, we have found Macdonald Henderson to be professional, responsive, proactive and above all, great to deal with given their honest, friendly and understanding manner.”

Jim Sims, Director of DTZ:

"Macdonald Henderson represents ‘best in class’ for niche corporate firms serving the Scottish SME market.  I express my appreciation to Macdonald Henderson for their support during our recent investment activity.  David and his team acted to our full satisfaction."

Anoup Treon, Chairman & Chief Executive of European Care:

"The service we receive from Macdonald Henderson is of the highest standard, reflecting the very healthy relationship between the two organisations. One team member in particular, has been involved in a number of transactions on behalf of the Bank, and in one instance, stepped in to ensure timely completion of a deal, when my clients’ advisers had misplaced security documentation. A real example of going the extra mile for the customer.

"In summary, David and the team have gained an excellent reputation within this office for providing quality advice, superior service and excellent value for money."

Bill Stockdale, Chairman of Vetsdirect Ltd/ Chairman of the GO GROUP:

“I have been using Macdonald Henderson for over a decade and have found a consistency in their standards over this period which is remarkable.  My use has ranged over a variety of services from debt management to acquisitions - the level of service standard has been equal throughout all services.  Perhaps the unique qualities of the firm are their friendly and down to earth approach to all matters and their ability to make you feel that you are an important client no matter how small the request.”

Ted Lambie, Associate of Haines Watts Glasgow Ltd (Chartered Accountants):

“I have dealt with the firm on a personal and business capacity for a number of years.  I have also recommended a number of my firm’s clients to the firm.  I have found the firm and in particular their Managing Partner to be very knowledgeable and professional.  My clients have also been pleased with my recommendations.  The firm and David are very diligent in their approach and are always timeous with their responses.   I, in fact, use Macdonald Henderson and David as my preferred legal practice for any legal/corporate issues that arise.” 

Jim Savage, Consultant for Hartley Cowley & Co Limited:

“Over the recent past, Macdonald Henderson has successfully acted for me in a personal capacity, as well as for my various companies and in-house client companies.   On many occasions the firm has acted in fields including conveyancing, set-up of family trust, wills and execturies, corporate partnership agreements and employment law.  I continue to use the firm’s expertise and am happy to recommend their services.” 

Norrie Innes, Director of Rock DCM Limited:

“Fantastic Service - Diligent, Professional, Commercial, Energetic, Efficient and in tune with our Company needs in relation to all legal matters.”

Graham Stark, Operations Director of James Walker Devol Engineering Limited:

Stewart Robertson, Director of The Hamilton Portfolio Limited:

“Hamilton Portfolio has engaged with Macdonald Henderson over a number of years on a diverse range of investments and interests.  We are delighted to continue to that association, following David’s buyout of the firm last year.

Our very recent experience suggests that the firm’s quality of service and advice, delivered in a commercial and straightforward matter, will not only be sustained but further enhanced under David’s stewardship.”

Sara Speirs, Managing Director of Spectrum Solutions Services Limited:

Sharon McLellan, Managing Director of Kissing With Confidence Ltd:

“Expert legal advice provided with a no-nonsense, practical, business perspective…… Macdonald Henderson is a firm that delivers.”

Stuart Macfarlane, Managing Director of Snapco Limited:

“When Macdonald Henderson carried out the legal work in connection with the purchase of Snapco, the entire transaction went without a hitch and the deal was completed in a prompt, thorough and efficient manner.  Snapco also worked with Macdonald Henderson a few months ago when we updated our Credit Account Application Form.  The original form was 20 years old and required to be re-vamped.  Macdonald Henderson incorporated essential additions to the form to ensure Snapco was legally protected in all eventualities.  Macdonald Henderson, once again, was extremely helpful throughout the entire process.”

Robert Paterson, Managing Director of Rojopa Argyll Holdings Limited and Rojopa Nasmyth Road Limited:

“Following a successful exit from my principal business a few years ago and in progressing a range of different business projects, I have had cause to work with a number and range of advisors over the years. My engagement with Macdonald Henderson over the last couple of years has been refreshing. Right across the firm, be it company matters, commercial property work or private client instructions, I see the same commitment to excellence, with great communication at all times. The most recent project involved the corralling of three generations of my family and associated pension funds into a property investment vehicle – a tricky task, handled with care, skill and diligence. I am delighted to be working with David Beveridge and Ian Anderson of the firm, and I wish the firm very well at the Awards –richly deserved in my view".

Harry Mitchell, Director of Mitchell Grids Limited:

“Ian Anderson represents the interests of my brothers and I, in respect of certain family commercial property interests. Not only does Ian offer us a terrific advisory service, but he does this with energy, enthusiasm and in a manner which makes Ian and his firm a pleasure to engage with. I wish the firm every success at the Awards”

Gregg Ross, Managing Director of Laurie Ross Limited:

“I was referred to Macdonald Henderson by a leading UK accountancy practice, and the introduction was one of the few good things to come of the project at hand. Our business was formed by my late father and I own the company with my mother. Unfortunately the project on which we were working was aborted very close to completion due to withdrawal by the other side. However, I was deeply impressed by David, Ian and their team, and their application to the highly complicated transaction at hand. At all times they took the time to explain what was happening and ensured that I was completely up to speed and comfortable. And they are good people to work with, real people with some humour about them – which I really like. I continue to work with the firm and would recommend them".

Gordon Campbell, Managing Director for Dynamic Concepts (International) Ltd:

"It has been so refreshing to receive such a high level of service.  The expertise provided by Ian Anderson in conveyancing matters and his colleagues in corporate matters has been of tremendous value.  So often these days we are disappointed with services; It has been great to be pleasantly surprised for once!  We would not hesitate to recommend Macdonald Henderson to friends and Associates.”

Jim Rowan, Managing Director for Dunns Foods & Drinks Limited:

"Ian Anderson, the Commercial Property Director, completed our deal with ease, within the timescale requested and explained any complicated issues simply and succinctly."

Alick Bisset, Director for Bissets Limited:

"We recently completed the acquisition of another practice in Glasgow.  Macdonald Henderson acted for us on both the acquisition of the business and the transfer of the lease.  The property aspect of the deal turned out to be more complex than anticipated due to unforeseen complications with the lease.  I was particularly impressed with the way Ian Anderson provided us with practical solutions that were both cost effective and commercial, allowing us to finalise the deal on time."

Ricky Tait, Managing Director for Airframe Components Europe Ltd:

"Airframe Components Europe Ltd has been a client of Macdonald Henderson for a number of years. We have recently used Ian Anderson for commercial property work and found him to be professional, reliable and helpful. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services to others."

John Costello, Managing Director for Callander Estates Limited:

"My group of companies has used the services of Ian Anderson at Macdonald Henderson for several years and I have been delighted with the excellent level of service and professionalism which he has provided to me during that time."

Gary Graham, Director for Mega Leisure (Scotland) Limited: 

“Macdonald Henderson and in particular Ian Anderson have assisted with the growth of my company.  When working with Ian, I do not need to worry about my business transactions as he always deals with matters straight away.  This is very important when purchasing or leasing properties, as delays can sometimes be costly”.

Steve O'Toole, Business Development Manager for Vets4Pets Limited: 

"Ian Anderson is that rarity in business, a lawyer that makes his clients feel important. We have relied on him to guide us through our first venture into Scotland and would be happy to recommend him to others".

Project Blacksmith - Acting for Clydesdale Bank PLC (the “Bank”) in its provision of acquisition finance to Bute Blacksmiths Limited (“Bute Blacksmiths”)

Clydesdale Bank Relationship Manager Commercial, Linda Paterson commented:

“I have been very impressed in my dealings with Macdonald Henderson, not only by their professionalism and commercial acumen, but also their collegiate approach and unwavering focus on delivery.

Under David Beveridge's leadership, the team at Macdonald Henderson demonstrates a willingness to talk in straight forward and common sense terms. I would therefore not hesitate to approach the firm on a wide range of legal subjects both formally and informally”.

Acting for Direct Response Contact Centres Group Limited (“DRCCGL”) in its purchase of the entire issued share capital of Ostinati Limited

Majority shareholder and director of DRCCGL, Chris Robinson commented:

“I wanted to send you this note to commend you (Fraser Morrison) and your firm on the outstanding, service I recently experienced.

On the initial conference call you (Fraser Morrison) and your colleague (David Beveridge) asked very good question and nailed the brief on the first call, which filled me with confidence.

Furthermore I was very impressed at how you stepped in and managed many additional elements that were not part of the original brief. You delivered at every turn and you did it despite a very, very tight timeline.”

Project Teacher - Acting for Scott Grant in the sale of his investment in EISFS Limited to Cornmarket Insurance

Managing Director and shareholder Scott Grant commented:

"Throughout my 15 month transaction involving numerous members of the MH corporate team, the professionalism of the team was unquestionable. Particularly impressive was the fact that it was extremely clear that all the MH staff were kept fully in the loop as matters progressed to a highly satisfactory conclusion.  I cannot speak highly enough of David and his team."

Project Leonardo – Acting for Law at Work Limited (“LAW”) in the acquisition of the entire issued share capital of Square Circle Limited (“Square Circle”)

CEO of LAW Jane Wright commented:

"David and his team displayed great skill in responding to the tenor of our negotiations (which were very amicable) while keeping us right and efficiently documenting our recent acquisition of Square Circle”.

Stuart Dalrymple, former Managing Director, now Consultant Engineer of James Walker Devol Engineering Limited:

“I believe that Macdonald Henderson is an outstanding example of a how a smaller law firm can engage intimately with their clients, while still offering the highest degree of professionalism that can be expected at any level.  Having worked with them closely on the sale of a family business and more importantly on the matters arising throughout the subsequent warranty period, I found their advice to be excellent and their attention to detail first rate.

While many people would feel that a smaller firm may lack the clout of the bigger firms, I believe that their size was an advantage in allowing easy communication and ensuring that you felt valued as client by all the staff across the business.  During this transaction, the positive attitude and energy shown by the legal team and their support staff made even the tough parts much easier.

Having dealt with David Beveridge on matters spanning the sale of a business, potential litigation and contract negotiations, I have found him to be both highly professional yet personable.  I have felt confident the he has been able to provide sound advice and excellent service.  His willingness to listen and understand the views of those lacking a legal background and interpret such views within a legal framework has been a key strength in the work we have undertaken together.  All this whilst taking over the role of Managing Director, without it ever affecting his availability or commitment.  I look forward to continuing my relationship with David in the future."

Jim Rowan, Managing Director of Dunns Food & Drinks:

“I have been aware of David’s work and qualities for over 15 years, when he advised on the buy out of Dunns Food & Drinks Limited by a management team led by myself and others at his previous firm Maclay, Murray & Spens. The transaction was a baptism of fire, given the number of family members involved in the original business, around thirty at the final count. I am delighted that David has continued to show the same qualities he exhibited in those early days, and from my experience of working with Macdonald Henderson, the same excellence, commitment and enthusiasm for the client has been transmitted to the whole team. I see them as very much lead advisors in the sector of family business legal advice and we are delighted to be working with them."

Ron Philips, Managing Director of Tinto Laser:

“I have instructed Macdonald Henderson for a good number of years in relation to my family owned business (as suppliers of toner and ink jet cartridges (across Europe)). I’ve been delighted to observe that the stewardship of David and his team in taking over from my original engagement (with Morinne Macdonald) has been one of seamless and confident advice and support, married with approachability and an understanding of family business and all that this entails."

Edward Dantzic, Managing Director of Lethington Leisure Limited:

“David was introduced to our family owned business, being a UK wide, multi site retail leisure business early in his tenure as managing director. I have been impressed by the quality of work and advice over the period since, replicated across the firm and its practice areas. Having worked with many advisors in my career, I’d have no hesitation in considering Macdonald Henderson as a leading advisor, particularly to family owned businesses".

Alick M Bisset BSc CA, Director of Bissets Limited:

“I have worked with David both in relation to our (family owned) accountancy practice and my professional dealings with client companies, which also have had the feature of being family owned – David and his firm understand the special features, pressures and tensions of family business and bring this knowledge to the fore when giving their (excellent) advices".

David Shenkin for the Shenkin family:

“As an advisor to family businesses myself I have worked with David Beveridge on a number of cases and found his contribution critical to the success of the project. Understanding the family business dynamic is a pre requisite for any major transaction and David and his team have demonstrated that clearly over the last few years".

Robert McKeown, Managing Director of Mitchell Engineering Group Ltd:

“David completed our complicated transaction (MBO) in a quick and efficient manner, explaining with clarity each step of the transaction process. Following the transaction any questions have been dealt with in the same efficient manner".

Jack Smith (formerly John Smith Bookmakers):

“First time I met David I found him to be a person I would want to deal with-nothing seems to be a hassle to him. My business dealings with him have been excellent".

Ian Whyte, formerly majority shareholder and Managing Director of Thistle International Limited:

“I had instructed Macdonald Henderson for a number of years, but their true strengths came to the fore during the sale of our family business in late 2010/2011. A hugely stressful transaction, David and his firm worked tirelessly to get the deal over the line in a very tight timescale. We endured some very tough and emotional negotiation meetings, where we found ourselves outnumbered by a robust purchaser with many advisors aligned across the table – but I never had any doubt that I had the best advice and advisors fighting for us in our corner".

George Lane, Director of Derculich Ltd:

“Macdonald Henderson represents ‘best in class’ for niche corporate firms serving the Scottish SME  family business market. 

“I express my appreciation to Macdonald Henderson for their support during our recent investment activity.  David and his team acted to our full satisfaction throughout the process and the transaction was completed in an extremely short timeframe.”

And they are good people to work with, real people with some humour about them – which I really like. I continue to work with the firm and would recommend them".

Stephen Corbett, Managing Director of Cormac Engineering Limited:

“We at Cormac limited have worked with Macdonald Henderson for many years on various projects the most recent was the acquisition of an engineering company in West Lothian. David and his team are very professional and their attention to detail and ability to work to strict deadlines were a huge help during the acquisition process. Myself and my family who are all employed by Cormac will continue to work with Macdonald Henderson on several projects in the near future and we would have no hesitation in giving our highest recommendation of David and his team."

John Crozier, Managing Director of Vision SMS Limited:

“As a small family firm in the highly competitive world of telecommunications we would have found survival and progress much more difficult without the invaluable support and professional advice given to us by David Beveridge and his colleagues at Macdonald Henderson".

John McGlynn, Founder and Chairman of Airlink Group of Companies and Vice-Chairman of the Entrepreneurial Exchange:

“In his role as Managing Partner of Macdonald Henderson, David has at a young age, shown himself to be not only a terrific corporate lawyer but a true entrepreneur - taking on his new role in the toughest of economic conditions.

I have had the fortune to work with David in my role as Vice Chairman of the Entrepreneurial Exchange and can rely on his advices.  I can attest to his skill in bringing elegant, focused solutions to often tricky problems.”

Patrick Deighan, Director of Piling & Drilling Supplies & Services Ltd:

"Over the past year, Macdonald Henderson has provided an outstanding service to both PPD Enterprises Limited and NUB Engineering Limited.  Without the assistance and determination of both David Beveridge and his team at Macdonald Henderson, the change of banks would probably not only have been much less smooth but may never have happened at all. 

The professionalism and expertise throughout the negotiations and closure, has assisted us in being able to move forward with piece of mind that all matters have been attended to diligently and on a timely basis. 

We would have no hesitation in recommending both David and Macdonald Henderson and look forward to continuing to work with them.”  

David Welch, Managing Director of Musselburgh Private Nursery Ltd:

"I am a new client in a start up business and find the legal processes quite daunting.  David and his team have given me huge confidence and have spent time and patience with me.  I have always felt very welcome and at ease in their offices and am now prepared to move forward in a positive and professional manner.” 

Paul Grant, Finance & Operations Director of Carnyx Group Ltd:

Allan Bridges, Managing Director of Capital Vending:

“Having built my office equipment business over a period of years, I decided to sell the company.  Once the decision was made, I then had to decide who would look after the legal aspects of the agreement.  Having looked around, I decided to use Macdonald Henderson and David Beveridge to look after my interests.  Having not been involved in board room meetings and multi million pound deals before, I was delighted to have David by my side and totally relied on his expertise and professionalism to get the deal concluded.”
