Burness Paull Sponsors The Scottish Family Business Awards 2013

Burness Paull has announced it is to sponsor the International Family Business of the Year award at The Herald’s forthcoming Scottish Family Business Awards 2013.

The awards, in association with Business Gateway, will recognise and reward family businesses of all sizes and all sectors in Scotland.

Now in their second year the awards will continue to celebrate the success of the diverse, dynamic and innovative family business sector, and the contribution which these businesses make to the communities in which they operate and to the wider economy.

The winners will be announced at a Gala Award Ceremony on Wednesday 4 December at the Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow.

Commenting on the sponsorship Peter Lawson head of the firm’s corporate finance division said;

“Burness Paull is delighted to be the sponsor of the International Family Business of the Year award at The Herald’s forthcoming Scottish Family Business Awards.

Family businesses form the bedrock of the Scottish economy, accounting for 70% of Scottish businesses and employing more than 50% of the Scottish private sector workforce. Many of these family businesses are looking at exciting international opportunities for growth.

The team at Burness Paull has significant experience across many sectors in advising clients on realising their global ambitions.”

In the run up to the awards, partners Peter Lawson and Grant Stevenson will be blogging about some of the key issues facing Scottish family businesses. To read these, and the rest of the Burness Paull blogs, please click here.
