Law firm MacRoberts welcomes new clients amid rising profits
Independent commercial law firm MacRoberts has welcomed a number of new clients to the firm as a result of recent competitive tendering exercises.
In the private sector, the firm has been appointed to act for CALA Homes as part of a select panel of legal advisers.
MacRoberts also won a place on the newly established legal panel for the Robertson Group, one of the UK’s largest family-owned construction, infrastructure and support services businesses.
In the public sector, the firm recently secured all six lots on the Scottish government’s Legal Services Framework after a highly competitive tender process.
This followed their appointment to the Crown Commercial Services Framework in 2018, which covers the whole UK public sector.
Other areas of the business have also experienced growth and success with the corporate finance team having a record year acting in 123 deals worth in excess of £600m.
This included deals on behalf of BAM Properties, Black & Lizars, Breedon Aggregates, Equitix, Renaissance Care, Renewi Group and Together Energy.
MacRoberts recently announced it enjoyed a 12 per cent rise in profits and a four per cent rise in turnover in the year 2018/19, and more than doubled its non-partner bonuses, which included a firm-wide bonus for every member of staff.
Laura Wilson, director of business development & marketing, said: “We invested in overhauling our bid processes and methodology. The legal services market is highly competitive and we are seeing the rise of procurement departments, who seek quality of service and value for money from their legal suppliers.
“I am very pleased that we have been able to demonstrate our capability across the firm with these recent prestigious appointments.”
Managing partner Neil Kennedy added: “Our recent tender wins and pleasing financial performance is testament to the hard work by everyone at MacRoberts. I am very proud of my team here and look forward to continuing our success as we grow and develop together.”
