As an established solicitor in the firm’s Commercial Property team, Iain’s reputation for his expert handling of multi-million, multi-faceted renewable energy projects and commercial property ventures is fast-growing.

He is highly skilled in acting for both developers and landowners on high-value solar and on/offshore wind farms and other renewable projects, placing him in the privileged position of being able to offer a full legal service from project inception, through construction and on to sales of transmission assets.

In addition, he has experience in executing complicated property sales and acquisitions; refinance exercises, and acting for landowners and developers in multi-use development schemes.

He has a firm grasp of all the pressures associated with commercial and financial transactions and is well-placed to offer clients practical and resourceful advice to achieve a quick and successful outcome.

Recent major projects have included:

  • a joint venture company sale of a multi-let, mixed-use property in London for in excess of £40m. The principal joint venture shareholder was a global, private investment company with a portfolio of circa £9b. The mixed-use scheme comprised 46,706 sq ft across six buildings and generated an annual rental income in excess of £2.2m;
  • project lead on a regional investment company’s instructions to carry out a material refinance exercise that involved a wide-ranging property portfolio with multiple commercial lettings. The value of security was circa £20m with further investment/development funds of approximately £6m;
