British Millerain


The Business Objective.

British Millerain ( was established by a small group of labourers and academics in 1880 and opened its first factory in Halifax, Yorkshire. Today British Millerain is the world's premier manufacturer of waxed cotton for commercial and military applications. The Company required us to obtain a mutually acceptable renunciation of an existing lease and negotiate a new short term licence for the continued occupation of industrial premises at the Port of Dundee including dealing with all historic environmental issues.


The Davidson Chalmers team successfully negotiated a deal which enabled the existing historic lease to be terminated and a new short term licence arrangement to be put in place for the premises.  The final agreement detailed how the environmental liability from past and existing operations would be resolved going forward. 



British Millerain continued its business operations uninterrupted at the Dundee site and obtained payment for the termination of the historic lease.
