UK: Eversheds Boosts its Clean Energy Team by New Senior Scottish Recruit
Last Updated: 25 January 2011

Andrew Fleetwood, a former Freshfields solicitor, has joined us as a Senior Associate in our Real Estate Practice. Andrew will focus on clean energy and will work closely with the Clean Energy Team.

Andrew, a specialist in real estate finance and complex leasing and acquisition structures, has extensive expertise advising clients in the UK and internationally. He has advised in the clean energy sector for a number of years and will continue to advise on a range of renewable energy projects including some current solar projects in Cornwall (including the largest site so far consented there) and on windfarm projects in Scotland.

Andrew will be based in our Edinburgh office, working on the increasing number of existing clean energy clients requiring advice on Scottish law as well as helping to expand the office's client base.

Andrew commented:

"I am extremely pleased to be joining Eversheds. The firm's Clean Energy practice has an impressive range of UK based and international clients and I look forward to working with the team as it expands and diversifies its Scottish client base."

Michelle Thomas, Head of the Clean Energy Group, added:

"We are delighted to welcome Andrew to the team. As the clean energy sector continues to grow with particular focus on Scotland, Andrew brings with him a great deal of expertise which will help us in providing an expert real estate solution for a number of our clients. Scotland is a key market for us and Andrew's appointment builds on our strategy in spearheading our growth in the Scottish market."
