Work Department

Property

Position

Jamie is a highly regarded real estate lawyer, with decades of experience and in-depth expertise in property and environmental law (in particular in contaminated land) honed from advising clients in energy and renewables; infrastructure; ports and harbours and hotels and leisure.

Projects include onshore wind and hydro schemes, bio-mass and anaerobic digestion schemes, a tidal scheme and advising a landfill operator in the largest mineral ownership dispute to come before the Scottish courts in recent decades. 

A combination of legal expertise and a passion for the water (a keen sailor) means Jamie is sought out by clients with interests in harbour and port related matters where he has more than just legal experience. 
 Jamie is a regular author of legal briefings and updates and has contributed to and commented on consultations on The Scotland Act 2012, Energy Act 2013, electricity market reform and property rates relief reform.

Shepherd and Wedderburn, whose team operates on a cross-departmental basis, has a particularly strong capability in advising national and international developers on environmental law issues arising from energy sector projects, such as those related to onshore and offshore wind, wave, tidal, energy from waste and coal-fired power. In 2017, Ewan MacLeod and Chris Devlin advised Brown & Mason Limited on the planning and environmental issues associated with the demolition of Scottish Power's power station at Longannet in Fife; this was Scotland's last coal-fired power station. Colin Innes, Colin Robertson, Scott McCallum and others are acting for Moray Offshore Windfarm (East) Limited in the planning, property and environmental aspects of the 1,116MW Moray East offshore wind development in the Moray Firth. With the firm having successfully represented Neart na Gaoithe Offshore Wind Limited in high-profile judicial review proceedings against the RSPB, Patricia Hawthorn and others are assisting the client with a new consent application for the Neart na Gaoithe project. Hawthorn jointly leads the environment practice with Innes. In addition to acting for energy sector clients, Jamie Grant advises those from infrastructure, ports and harbours, and hotels and leisure. Richard Leslie is also recommended.
