Corporate Finance team advise Cumbrian quantity surveyor on Scottish acquisition

Our corporate finance team recently advised A Lamb Associates (ALA), located in Carnforth, on their acquisition of Morham + Brotchie (M+B), based in Edinburgh.

The deal is set to bolster the breadth of ALA’s services, increase its collective headcount to more than 50, and scale the capabilities of both firms in Scotland and England. ALA’s two directors will now become directors of M+B, as well as retaining the existing leadership team.

Established in 1996, ALA is a family-owned consultancy that has grown from its roots in the oil and gas pipeline sector to offer commercial services across the construction industry. They specialise in major construction, infrastructure and energy projects worldwide.

Tom Lamb, managing director at A Lamb Associates, said:

“We’re naturally hugely excited by the acquisition of M+B, as it represents a real watershed moment for both companies. It takes us to a collective of over 50 exceptional staff, and is another milestone on our ALA25 business plan, as we work towards our goal of a 100-strong team. Our objective is to create a stronger and better business that is the market leader in our chosen sectors.

“Special thanks go to our advisors for their support in the transaction. We now look forward to taking this well-established business with a long history to the wider market, working with the existing management team on this exciting new chapter.”

Our Corporate Finance team said:

“It was a pleasure for us to work with Tom Lamb and Byron Tyson at A Lamb Associates Ltd to carry out their successful acquisition of Morham + Brotchie Ltd; and really great to help a long standing family-owned business grow their services across the UK construction industry.”

The Corporate Finance was assisted by Tax Partner, Rachel Marsdin, on the transaction.
