Amy is a Partner in our Commercial Real Estate team, based in Edinburgh. 

Commercial Real Estate expertise

Amy has specialised in commercial property since qualifying in 1997. Over that time she has dealt with most aspects of commercial property, acting for owner-occupiers, landlords, tenants and funders, within the private and public sectors.

She has experience across all types of asset and her team is also involved in asset management covering the retail, office and industrial sectors.   

She has worked on transactions across the full scope of commercial real estate - from site assembly  for the development of bespoke single properties to the sale or purchase of large investment portfolios. 

Her work has regularly included Scottish input to international transactions, including many cross border transactions - when being dual qualified since 1999 gives her an advantage.

Public Sector expertise

Amy is the Lead Partner for the team of lawyers who work for Scottish Government Legal Directorate for general property work.  She also acts for Ministry of Defence, a number of Scottish Local Authorities and other public sector organisations. 

She has built up experience of the bespoke requirements of the public sector in relation to their occupational requirements, as well as their policies and best value obligations on disposal and acquisitions. 

Amy spent time on secondment with City of Edinburgh Council.  She  has specialised in commercial property since qualifying in 1997.

As well as advising on specific transactions and supervising others in the team, Amy attends client review and liaison meetings and provides input for responses to Ministerial questions relating to property transactions.  She is happy to give ad hoc advice and training to public sector clients as part of our added value offering.

What our clients and peers say: 

I would particularly like to take this opportunity to thank you for your excellent work…the advice, guidance and assistance you provided throughout these negotiations was pivotal to achieving the successful conclusion of the conditional missives and in ensuring that our position has remained fully protected.
