Why MBM Commercial?

Here are some views on MBM Commercial from existing staff:

“I joined MBM because I was looking for something slightly different. I wanted a firm that strived to provide clients not only with legal advice but sound business guidance. MBM’s niche in the market for helping entrepreneurial business therefore appealed to me greatly. This fact, along with the friendliness of staff and enthusiastic team, has made it an excellent choice for me.”
Gordon Herd, Solicitor, Corporate Group (joined August 2016)

“I joined MBM Commercial in September 2017 having decided that I wanted to be a lawyer at a firm which truly understood the needs of start-up companies, investors and people across the UK and further afield that wanted to build and develop businesses.  I wanted to pursue the same mission that MBM Commercial pursues every day; that of being "Entrepreneurial Lawyers for Entrepreneurial Businesses". 

I was already very familiar with MBM Commercial, having worked for a number of years in the early stage company sector. I have always been impressed by the firm's ethos of not only advising entrepreneurs but engaging with clients and the market place in an entrepreneurial fashion. MBM Commercial has long been well established as the go-to firm for start-ups with long standing client relationships with key players in the Scottish and UK entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

Since joining the firm I have discovered that the approach of the firm and each of its staff is highly motivated and focused on achieving results for clients that aim to be nothing short of awesome.”
Alexander Lamley, Associate, Corporate Group (joined September 2017)

“So why do I like working with these guys? It's three things really. They share the entrepreneurial 'can do' spirit of their clients and so are fun to work with; they deliver the goods – on time and on budget; their transaction judgement is sound and entirely practical.”
