Paul Pignatelli - DWF

Within: Corporate and commercial: Edinburgh and Glasgow

Led by Wayne Lawrence, DWF‘s team undertakes the gamut of domestic and cross-border corporate transactions for Scottish, UK and international clients. The firm, which is active across many sectors, particularly stands out for its work in industries such as hospitality and leisure, retail, energy and utilities, sports, and food and drink. Its first-rate reputation sees it generate work from notable clients such as Custodian REIT Plc, Scottish Power and Exova. In 2017, Glasgow executive partner Paul Pignatelli, director Tom Maxwell and Colin Miller were among the team which acted for Capita Plc in the restructuring and subsequent disposal of CER Staffing Solutions (and its subsidiaries) to Endless Fund IV. Another highlight involved advising Edwin James Holdings Limited on its £24m acquisition of WT Parker Holdings Limited. Damien Bechelli, Gary MacDonald, and senior associates Kirsty Smith and Rachel Gervaise, are other active practitioners in the team.
