Neil has been Managing Partner at MacRoberts since 1 May 2018.
He has been with MacRoberts since 1999 and specialises in corporate and commercial work for a broad range of businesses across the UK. He is a trusted adviser to a number of SME business owners and has guided many of those SME businesses through set-up, consolidation and exit – that is what he enjoys most about his job.
Neil’s transactional work often has an international element and he has advised regularly on the Scottish end of funds set-up and administration. In particular, Neil has a lot of experience working with our Banking and Pensions teams in relation to the use of Scottish Limited Partnerships in highly structured transactions.
Additionally, Neil’s work has contributed to MacRoberts being Highly Commended for Commercial Team of the Year at the British Legal Awards 2016.
He is very easy to work with and very efficient in his dealings.
MacRoberts have worked closely with us throughout the entire acquisition process from the initial Due Diligence phase to the successful conclusion of the SPA. They consistently added value at every stage allowing us to complete the deal in a short space of time. The various legal aspects of the deal were skilfully orchestrated by Neil Kennedy who headed up the team. Thanks to the MacRoberts team for the hard work, dedication and commercial attitude to successfully concluding the deal on time.
We first instructed Messrs MacRoberts in 2006 to assist us in selling a part of the business. We have subsequently re-hired MacRoberts on several occasions, in particular to assist us with acquisitions and disposals. As strong differentiators we would cite the extraordinary strength in depth of the MacRoberts team, together with their commercial pragmatism and sheer desire to get deals done. The hard working team offer 'straight to the point' advice and are astute in their recommendations; this is clearly based upon the team’s experience but also reflects very well upon the vital ability of Neil Kennedy as our lead partner to understand a client's culture and associated expectations of service delivery, time-scales and budget.
We received outstanding service from MacRoberts. Neil and his team worked tirelessly on our behalf and we couldn't have asked for better counsel.
MacRoberts have been incredibly supportive and commercial in making this deal happen. Neil Kennedy and his team have been incredibly responsive and the quality of service has been exceptional. I strongly valued their ability to see the issues from my perspective. It's great to be working with people who have taken the time to really get to grips with a new business model, to understand the ambitions I have for this business and who are advocates for what I am doing.
Always gives level-headed and empathetic advice
