Gillespie Macandrew today said it has appointed Greg Peebles as a partner in its Glasgow office.
The law firm said the move comes as it continues to grow its commercial property presence and client base in the west of Scotland.
Peebles was previously a member of rival DWF’s retail estate finance team north of the Border and has acted for landlords and corporate occupiers – including high street brands such as Halfords, New Look and Starbucks – in the office, business park and industrial sectors.
He has also worked in Dubai and was part of a legal team advising government departments on number of residential and commercial property schemes, including the Palm Jumeirah.
Gillespie Macandrew chief executive Chris West said: “We continue to drive forward the business and further enhance our Glasgow services for clients. Greg’s wealth of expertise will enable us to further build on our strength in commercial property.
“Gillespie Macandrew is a growing law firm with many development opportunities. We are always on the look-out for talent and energy such as Greg’s and are actively recruiting in a number of areas.”
