The Loch Lomond Group is an independent distiller and blender of spirits including some of the finest and rarest Scotch whiskies in the world. It owns and operates three distilleries and markets a portfolio of malt expressions, quality whisky blends and the second most popular spirits brand in the UK, Glen’s Vodka.
Vialex’s Legal Counsel Service has acted for the Loch Lomond Group since its acquisition in 2014, backed by funds managed by Exponent Private Equity. In that time it has provided legal support to the business across a wide range of contractual, compliance and HR matters reflecting the diversity of its operations and markets.
Richard Miles, Chief Financial Officer, commented:
“The Vialex Legal Counsel Service does what it says on the tin. We get a quality legal support service that responds to our needs, very often working to short timescales. The Vialex team has been particularly instrumental in assisting with our international contractual arrangements as we expand our reach into a number of new overseas markets”.
It was important to us that our legal advisers were aligned to our business values, and we were impressed by the approach Vialex took to support our business by offering a ‘virtual’ in-house legal team who look after our day-to-day legal needs.
George Tait - Director and Company Secretary
We have worked with Vialex since 2012, following our buyout from a major UK foods group, when our fast evolving business required a different approach to meet our legal services needs in a cost effective way. At the time it was something of a leap of faith for Quorn Foods but we have been delighted with the service from Vialex, and the appetite they have shown to support us in any way they can.
David Artindale - Head of Procurement
We use the Vialex Legal Counsel Service as our day-to-day support for all our contracts and legal issues. They act as an extension of our own team and work with us to help us achieve our commercial goals. The subscription means we can get the advice we need when we need it for a fixed cost.
