Claire is a Consultant, based in our Edinburgh office.
While having a general real estate background, Claire has focused mainly on her telecoms practice over the past 20 years, acting for a variety of the main telecoms operators during that period.
Claire has managed the roll-out of several networks across Scotland and has seen the development of the industry from its beginning with the mass acquisition of sites and site sharing through to the current consolidation phase (acting in the first T-Mobile/Everything Everywhere/H3G consolidation). Claire is a leader in her field and understands the needs and pressures of the operators and the requirements of landlords. She takes a practical and hands on approach to problem solving and is known for getting the job done.
Claire now has an active involvement in the estate management issues of the telecoms network and acts for clients who own/lease networks of mast sites for communications and broadcast across the country.
More recently Claire has developed an interest in renewables and has advised a number of wind farm operators who have small developments in Scotland and England.
Claire is dual qualified to practice in both Scotland and England.
