MacRoberts LLP ‘combines legal expertise with commercial oversight right throughout the team‘, which is reflected in its work for clients ranging in size from family-owned businesses and SMEs to Scotland-headquartered listed companies. Although the firm is primarily active in the Scottish market, it is increasingly sought-after to advise on UK wide and international transactions. Its first-rate team includes Michael Kelly and associate Victoria McMurray, who acted for Idox Plc in its acquisition of Halarose in 2017. Another key figure is Neil Kennedy, who led a cross-practice team (which included members of the pensions, employment, property and tax practices) to advise the vendors on the sale of Morrison’s Garage Limited and Morrisons (Land Rover) Limited to John Clark Motor Group. Another headline deal saw Alan Kelly, Bonar Mercer and others assist high-growth educational software company Sumdog with obtaining a £1.4m investment from NESTA Impact Investments. David Wylie is another name to note in the group, which is led by Kennedy. Legal director Louise Mahon recently joined from Brodies LLP.
