Illustrative of MacRoberts LLP's reputation in the industry, practice head Nick Jones is a member of the Scottish Renewables Onshore Wind Group, and has more than 18 years of experience advising clients on the real estate aspects of renewable energy projects (with a particular focus on onshore wind). The group's other areas of expertise include floating wind, tidal, hydro, solar, biomass generation projects and heat pumps. It also recently established a portfolio of battery storage and electricity peaking plants for clients such as GridCodePower Limited. Mike Barlow (accredited by the Law Society of Scotland as a construction law specialist) has five years of in-house experience at John Brown Engineering Limited, where he negotiated contracts over the supply and construction of gas turbine power stations and associated equipment in the UK and worldwide. The multidisciplinary team also draws upon its strengths in areas such as corporate, planning and environment, and finance to advise on all types of technically complex issues arising from renewable energy projects. Ian Bowie and David McGuire are assisting SP Energy Networks with establishing permanent land rights as part of the South West Scotland Connections Project. Martin Sales, who has undertaken more than 60 planning inquiries in circa 20 years, is representing developer West Garty Renewables LLP at a public local inquiry into a large wind farm in East Sutherland. Senior associate Keith Campbell, who heads up the planning team, is another notable individual. Lesley Roarty and Ian Riach also have extensive knowledge of the renewable energy sector.
