I am one of Scotland’s leading and most experienced renewables lawyers.

I help you with all the property aspects of your renewable energy project, regardless of generation technology.

I help you by putting in place all property documentation from day one of a proposed project through to generation.

This work can include:

  • due diligence in relation to acquisition, funding or investment in projects;
  • getting your property package into marketable/fundable form;
  • advising landowners on options available to them re renewables developments on their land;
  • particular property structures for sharing assets and infrastructure; community developments; and small scale projects.

I have a particular interest in the setting up, development and completion of structures for community ownership of and involvement in renewable energy projects.

I am also a gateway to the rest of our outstanding Renewable Energy Team.
