Morham & Brotchie Ltd has been sold to A. Lamb Associates Ltd (ALA), having been successfully advised by KBS Corporate Deal Executive Stephen Alcock.

Originally founded in 1876, Morham & Brotchie is a chartered quantity surveyor operating across the public, commercial and heritage markets.

The Edinburgh-based company has advised on a multitude of projects, ranging from domestic properties through to multi-million pound contracts.

Alan Harper and Ewan Slight, directors of Morham & Brotchie, instructed KBS Corporate on the sale of the business as part of their gradual retirement plans.

Stephen advised: “Alan and Ewan wanted to reduce their time in the day-to-day running of the business and operate in a consultancy capacity.

“They have aspirations to see how the company can grow over the next 10 years, knowing they were critical to its development.”

ALA, based in Cumbria, has acquired Morham & Brotchie to extend its national capabilities and operate as a Scottish base.

Established in 1996, ALA offers commercial solutions to the construction and energy sectors, as well as specialist pipeline services for the oil and gas industry.

Commenting on the sale, Alan Harper said: “We’ve been familiar with the team at ALA for some time and have always valued the synergy and cultural alignments between our two organisations.

“Our shared values made taking this step feel natural for both parties and it represents an opportunity for two well-established consultancies to share best practices, develop talent and provide market-leading services.”

Tom Lamb, Managing Director of ALA, believes the acquisition is key to accelerating the growth of the two businesses.

“We are hugely excited by the acquisition of Morham & Brotchie as it represents a real watershed moment for both companies,” said Tom.

“Our objective is to create a stronger and better business that is the market leader in our chosen sectors.”

Stephen added: “I believe it will be a successful partnership with both companies possessing qualities that will allow the other to succeed.”
