New partner appointed
Senior hire for law firm Anderson Strathern
English qualified partner Iain Grieve joins from HBJ as the firm looks to build its cross-border credentials in London and the rest of the UK.
He spent time in the City with Dentons and Nabarro Nathanson and is now working with Anderson Strathern’s commercial real estate and English property teams around growth sectors in development including build to rent (BTR), healthcare and retirement living and hotel and leisure.
Mr Grieve said: “London and the South East remain dominant as an investment destination in the UK and I can see great opportunity for the firm to further establish its presence and relationships there, as well as across the rest of the UK.”
Bruce Farquhar, chairman, said: “Iain is a specialist in his field and brings a strong track record of working not only with some of the UK’s most highly rated law firms but also alongside funders, developers, investors and other key intermediaries across the commercial real estate sector.
“As a firm, we have been building cross-border activity and stronger links with London for a number of years now and having Iain in place continues this strategic course.”
