Congratulations to Clyde Blowers Capital Partner, Shauna Powell, who has won Individual of the Year in Private Equity at the prestigious Legal 500 Awards.

The Legal 500 United Kingdom Awards recognises and rewards the best in-house and private practice teams and individuals over the past 12 months each year.

The awards ceremony will be taking place on the 6th of February 2019 at The Great Hall, Guildhall, London.

Shauna Powell trained as a solicitor with Maclay Murray & Spens (“Maclays”) in Glasgow where she dual qualified in both Scotland and England & Wales, following her legal degree from the University of Glasgow.

On qualifying she specialised in corporate law focusing on private equity and venture capital M&A.

After 6 years in Glasgow with Maclays, Shauna moved to Aberdeen to open a new office in 2003 where she focused on private equity, acting primarily for 3i Group plc.

She joined Clyde Blowers in August 2006 focusing on M&A activity, including the acquisition of all portfolio assets for Fund II and Fund III, and the successful disposals of ClydeUnion, Maag Group and Cone Drive. Shauna was also part of the team that led the fund raising processes for CBC II and CBC III.

Shauna was promoted to partner in 2011 and is primarily responsible for all legal activities across Clyde Blowers. She also acts as the Compliance and Money Laundering Officer for the firm.

We would like to congratulate her on a very impressive achievement.
