  • “Let me thank you and your team for your time. Clearly, you present well, show mastery of your subject area and think on your feet.”

    US Law Firm
  • "MacRoberts acted for us in the divestment of one of our key business interests, in what was a complex cross-border transaction. We have used MacRoberts before and, again, they were first class throughout, providing clear and commercially balanced advice at all levels. I would not hesitate to use them in future and would strongly recommend using them for significant commercial transactions."

  • "We were not familiar with the acquisition process in Scotland nor the Scottish legal system, especially in property-related matters. MacRoberts advised exactly what we should do in order to acquire the target company and hedge the risk involved in the deal. They showcased their strong expertise and dedication throughout the deal process to make the deal a success within a short period of time. We hope to use their advice continuously as we do business and invest in Scotland."

    CS Wind Corporation
  • "MacRoberts are commercially-minded, responsive and cover all bases in terms of expertise. As an English lawyer, I have always found them a very safe pair of hands in terms of navigating some of the differences between English and Scottish law."
