Founded as a family business, Western Global is the leading provider in Europe and North America of portable tanks and dispensing equipment for the storage and handling of fuels, lubricants and other fluids.

MML’s investment means the company can continue its strong growth trajectory as the leading platform in the liquid storage and dispensation market, particularly into the USA. At the same time, the company will continue to expand its product range and technical capabilities to meet market needs.

The Osborne Clarke team was led by Bristol-based partner Alisdair Livingstone with support from associate director James Taylor, senior associate Ashley Morris and associate Andrew Massey in the corporate team.

Additional support was provided by associate James Hamon (tax), associate director Nick Haywood and associate Alex Farrell-Thomas (employment) and senior associate Jon Round (commercial).
