We are pleased to advise that Macdonald Henderson is one of three corporate law firms shortlisted for “Transactions Team of the Year” at The Law Awards of Scotland 2019, along with global giants Dentons and CMS.

This represents the fourth year in a row in which the firm has been shortlisted in this category (winning in 2016 and 2018, runner up in 2017).

We are delighted to follow up that recognition with this nomination, and to be sharing the company of two of the largest law firms in the world.

The nomination follows recent successes for the Macdonald Henderson team:

• completion of over 40 deals this year (Q1 – Q3, January – September 2019) as reported to Business Insider including milestone transactions in key industry sectors such as engineering, financial services and technology.

• completion of strategic acquisition, disposals and fundraisings for key Scottish clients such as John Paton & Sons (insurance), Target Healthcare (pharmaceutical), HALO Scotland (urban regeneration), Finlay Scotland (Terex) Currie Transport (logistics), and JWF Process Solutions (test engineering).

• recognition once again as a top ranked corporate team by the Legal 500 Recommended Law Firm Guide 2019, a team which, according to the Guide “delivers ‘practical, to-the-point advice without burdening the client with the legal minutiae. The firm’s first-rate reputation enables it to attract high-profile deals”.

• recognition for key team members David Beveridge (“quickly ascertains the key issues to address”) and Fraser Morrison (“exceptional”), each maintaining their Legal 500 Recommended Lawyer status this year (2019).

• Growth in the corporate team, with the appointments of Hilary Malone and Colm Kerr in the last few months.

We are grateful that the team’s efforts have been acknowledged by the Law Awards judging panel in this way.

We will revert with news of any success at the Law Awards ceremony at the end of this month, but in the meantime, we would wish to take this opportunity to thank each of you, as clients, contacts and friends in business for your loyalty and support, and in particular to those clients and contacts who were kind enough to provide us with the tremendous testimonials on the work of our team.
