Addleshaw Goddard has recruited two new partners to its corporate team.

Derek McCombe and Iain Sutherland, who join the firm from Dentons, will be based in the firm’s Glasgow office, joining existing Glasgow-based corporate partners Murray Jack and Anna Brown.

Mr Sutherland was previously head of Denton’s’ corporate department in Scotland and advises on a broad range of corporate and commercial matters, with a particular focus on private equity transactions, as well as M&A, MBOs/MBIs, venture capital, joint ventures and corporate restructurings.

Mr McCombe was formerly head of the Dentons UK and Ireland Retail practice and has extensive experience of domestic and international corporate and commercial work, specialising in M&A, PE / VC transactions and corporate restructurings.

David Anderson, head of corporate in Scotland at Addleshaw Goddard, said: “Attracting two partners with the reputation in the market of Iain and Derek is a statement of our intent to continue growing our market share in corporate Scotland.

“We already have one of the largest transactional teams in Scotland and now have 11 partners among an overall group of more than 30 people, all focused on bringing AG’s award-winning approach to deals in the Scottish market. As part of a firm with an increasingly international profile, our team remains committed to the local market while also advising on deals with global scale alongside our colleagues from AG’s network of 17 offices worldwide.

“Iain and Derek are fantastic additions to our team and will play an important role as we continue to grow the Corporate team based in Edinburgh, Glasgow and Aberdeen. We aim to be the strongest corporate team in Scotland carrying out the highest quality work and we believe that adding Iain and Derek enhances our offering, particularly in relation to private equity deals and the retail, food & drink and utilties sectors.”
