Macdonald Henderson is pleased to advise its role in advising Clark Communications in the acquisition of Golley Slater Scotland Limited.

The deal will see ownership of Golley Slater Scotland transfer to Clark Communications, and the two teams come together to create a larger, enhanced agency offering to serve the Scottish market and beyond.

The independently-owned consultancy will operate as Clark Communications from offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow, offering a range of public relations and media relations, crisis and issues management, strategic and internal communications, digital and social, design and advertising services to existing and new clients.

An alliance with Golley Slater Group will allow its UK clients to retain access to services in Scotland, and Clark Communications’ clients to connect with regional services and specialist disciplines across the UK and internationally.

Clark Communications was established by Lesley Brydon in 2012, after a long career with some of the largest PR agencies in Scotland. Clients include the Institute of Directors and business advisers and accountants Scott-Moncrieff, who advised on the financial aspects of the deal.

Golley Slater Scotland is a full-service marketing agency and has been established in Scotland since 2005. Current clients include Paterson Arran and the People’s Postcode Lottery, alongside a number of public sector bodies.

On Macdonald Henderson, Lesley Brydon, founder and Managing Director of Clark Communications said: “Having been recommended to us, Macdonald Henderson handled our complex deal admirably, and managed to turn the acquisition around in what proved to be an extremely tight timescale.”

The Macdonald Henderson team was led by Fraser Morrison and Laura Forrest and we’re delighted to have played a role in this exciting merger.
