A law firm for life

Congratulations to the Cecchini family for their business success

They say that Barga is “the most Scottish town in Italy”, set amongst the hills in the Tuscan countryside. One of Barga’s most well-known, and dare we say most loved, local exports is the Cecchini family who have made Ayrshire their home since departing Barga towards the end of the last millennium.

If you have had the good fortune to visit any one of the various restaurants they have successfully developed over the years, since arriving in Ayrshire, you will be sure to have been greeted with a smile, a relaxed atmosphere and rewarded with some wonderful Italian food. I guess you would expect nothing less from a family that has worked so hard to bring that little bit of Italian zest to each of their restaurants over the years.

None of this has occurred without hard work, dedication and some careful planning. At The McKinstry Company, we are delighted to have had the privilege of providing legal support along the way to the family in guiding them through the evolution of their businesses in Ayrshire. With any business, and in particular a family business, the advisers (whether lawyers, accountants or financiers) are a key component to its success. They bring expertise, professionalism and objectivity in many areas, whether that is:-

Our support for any business allows those at the heart of the business to concentrate on what they do best. In the case of the Cecchini family, this is bringing that little bit of Barga magic to their wonderful restaurants around Ayrshire.

This year Aldo, Morag and Anthony celebrate significant anniversaries in their principal restaurants in Ayr and Ardrossan. We wish them warm congratulations on reaching these milestones and continued success in the future. While Anthony now has a much more prominent role in the stewardship of the business, Morag and Aldo are never far away. As one might expect from Italians, they wear their heart on their sleeve and are passionate about all they do, in seeking to deliver an excellent experience every time you have the benefit of visiting their little bit of Italy!
