MacRoberts helps secure £18 million investment in energy firm
Commercial law firm MacRoberts has delivered an £18 million investment for the emerging Scottish energy company, Together Energy.
The deal, which has been secured from Warrington Borough Council, will see the council take a 50% shareholding in the business. The Council was attracted to the Glasgow-based company due to its business model, which offers opportunities to young disadvantaged people.
Under a new board of directors, the investment will secure 150 jobs in Clydebank as well as 30 immediate positions in Warrington.
Together Energy Chief Executive Paul Richards said: “This is a tremendously exciting chapter for the company, and Michael Kelly and his team at MacRoberts have been brilliant throughout.”
MacRoberts Corporate Partner Michael Kelly said: “Together Energy should be incredibly proud of what they have achieved and we are delighted to have been part of their journey. We look forward to continuing to work with them in the next chapter for their business.”
