        Anthony McEwan

        Partner // Head of Real Estate (Glasgow)

        Whilst heading up the Real Estate team in Glasgow, Anthony handles substantial volumes of work for the operator of the National Grid in Scotland, including grid connections for major wind farms.

        Anthony has over 20 year's experience of commercial and residential development, cross-country infrastructure projects, the electricity energy sector generally, along with niche expertise in petrol filling station acquisition and disposal.

        Anthony's real estate experience extends to cover property development and property investment. He deals with site acquisition work for substations and for a substantial retirement housing developer (he manages the plot sales team). Anthony is used to dealing with leases and landlords and tenants and his clients include commercial developers and investors, football clubs and sports facilities operators. He also deals with a number of telecoms related issues.

        Anthony has dealt with the grid connections for Scotland's biggest wind farms and has a thorough knowledge of the renewables industry as well as the operation of the electricity and energy industry in Scotland.

        As well as lobbying for law reform for property clients, Anthony is a frequent speaker on legal issues. With a clear no-nonsense approach, he is much in demand to provide in-house training for a number of clients, both lawyers and non-lawyers alike.

        Significant projects include a cross-country gas pipeline, the proposed re-energising of a major coal-fired power station, town centre regeneration development acting for the sponsoring local authority, a substantial disposal programme of petrol filling stations for a national fuel retailer and the development of a major new golf course.

        Anthony handles all legal work in Scotland for McCarthy & Stone, the UK's premiere developer of private sheltered housing for the elderly.

        Having a particular interest in e-commerce and technology issues, Anthony sits on the Technology Committee of the Law Society of Scotland and was a member of the Implementation Group working with the Keeper of the Registers of Scotland on the introduction of the Automated Registration of Title to Land system.
