We are pleased to advise that the Corporate Team of Macdonald Henderson is one of three corporate law firms shortlisted for “Legal Advisor of the Year” for the Insider Deals & Dealmaker Awards 2018, alongside Scottish legal heavy weights Burness Paull and Turcan Connell.

Finalists have been chosen in six categories, with the Dealmaker of Year and Deal of The Year categories being announced on the night of the awards.

The judging process involved shortlisted entrants attending a short interview hosted by members of the judging panel who could put their questions to the businesses and individual entrants.

Up to three representatives from each selected nominee were able to attend the final judging session before the finalists were selected.

Winners are being chosen in categories Acquisition of the Year; Sale of the Year; MBO/MBI/IBO/EBO of the Year; Deal Transaction Support Award; Early Stage Risk Capital Deal of the Year; Legal Advisor of the Year; by a judging panel chaired by John Anderson, head of SME engagement at Strathclyde Business School.

We are delighted to note the additional recognition of the firm’s work on the multi-million pound takeover of the GlenAllachie Distillery from Pernod Ricard marking the arrival of a new entrant to the market led by industry veteran Billy Walker, which has been shortlisted in the Acquisition of the Year category.

The nomination follows recent successes for the Macdonald Henderson Corporate Team:

• Acting for the employee shareholders in the sale of Stream Technologies to technology giant ARM in June 2018;

• Completion of over 20 deals this year to date, as reported to Business Insider including milestone transactions in key industry sectors such as whisky, engineering, financial services and technology;

• Recognition once again as a top ranked Corporate Team by the Legal 500 Recommended Law Firm Guide 2018.

We are grateful that the team’s efforts have been acknowledged by the Deal & Dealmakers judging panel in this way.

We will revert with news of any success at the Deal & Dealmakers Awards ceremony on 5th September, but in the meantime, we thank you for your continued support.
