Addleshaw Goddard's North West Corporate team has advised J Murphy & Sons on the acquisition of Carillion's UK power framework business. 

The transaction will see the transfer of 22 employees to Murphy, as the global infrastructure company takes over Carillion's position on National Grid’s electricity overhead lines, substation and underground cable framework contracts, following the liquidation of Carillion.

Murphy will support National Grid in delivering planned replacement and refurbishment schemes on its 33kV to 400kV transmission network spanning England and Wales, including the 20km, 400Kv overhead line from Richborough to Canterbury, which will connect the Nemo Link interconnector from Belgium with the UK transmission network.

The AG team was led by Corporate Partner Shelley McGivern, and included Joanne Cooper.
