Macdonald Henderson is pleased to have advised employment law, HR and health & safety specialists Law At Work (LAW) on the acquisition of Square Circle HR Ltd.

The Glasgow-based Square Circle team of nine will join Law At Work’s 33 employees across its Edinburgh and Glasgow offices. The deal will see LAW enhance its existing human resources consultancy team.

Jane Wright, chief executive of Law At Work, said: “Since the MBO in 2012 our ambition has been to grow the business into a significantly larger company and this merger will be a significant first step towards us realising this goal. Our recent annual results to May 2016 show continued growth in income of 3.5 per cent with profits remaining steady. This acquisition will enable us to deliver a step change in growth over the next few years.

“Square Circle HR has an excellent reputation for the quality of the service they provide and we were immediately impressed by the directors and the personalised client relationships they and their people have developed over the years. Our focus in the coming months will be to ensure that our teams work together to continue to provide the very best support for our clients.”

The undisclosed price was financed by HSBC. The advisors on the deal have been David Beveridge of Macdonald Henderson and Neil Grimmond of Craig Corporate on behalf of LAW and Paul Mason of Lomond Advisory and Michael Murphy of Omnium Law on behalf of Square Circle HR.
