Heather is a professional support lawyer in our Commercial Real Estate team.
Having spent more than 25 years as a real estate lawyer, many of those as a partner, Heather has extensive experience in all aspects of commercial property work including investment, development, property finance and leasing.
Most recently, she has been following the rapidly developing laws and regulations linking energy efficiency to real estate, including the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme, energy performance certification, the Green Deal and potential future rules on improvements to properties and/or prohibitions against letting properties which are facilitated by climate change legislation in Scotland and the Energy Act in the UK.
As a professional support lawyer, Heather ensures that our people always have the latest legal information at their fingertips. This involves providing training and guidance on current legal developments and generally keeping our lawyers and clients up-to-date.
Just as important in her work is the capture of the legal knowledge we generate ourselves, so that we can store, share and re-use it efficiently to get the best results for our clients.
