Work Department



Partner in the Corporate Department since joining Stronachs in November 2015, Ross has more than 16 years’ experience in corporate and commercial law, advising businesses and private individuals in a range of industry sectors with a particular emphasis on the SME marketplace.  He has developed broad experience including a number of high-value sale, MBO, investment and refinancing transactions in the construction, sports, renewable energy, oil and gas (service) and care sectors.  He particularly enjoys acting for and developing relationships with SMEs and owner-managed or family owned businesses as they grow from the early start-up stage, to becoming larger organisations – with the ultimate aim of achieving an exit via a sale to an independent buyer, or to the incumbent management team.
