Neil Hogg and Gaenor Cassell join Addleshaw Goddard
Neil Hogg and Gaenor Cassell have been appointed partners at Addleshaw Goddard in Scotland.
Mr Hogg joins the real estate team in Glasgow, bringing almost 30 years of experience, as well as a strong portfolio of clients and connections in the hotel, logistics, and office sub-sectors.
He joins Addleshaw Goddard after 18 years with Pinsent Masons, including 12 as a partner, and offers a wealth of expertise in the institutional investment market, having acted for the likes of Aviva Investors and CBRE Global Investors for many years.
Ms Cassell is the fifth partner to expand Addleshaw Goddard’s banking practice in Scotland and joins the Edinburgh team from Burness Paull, bringing more than 20 years’ experience advising lenders and borrowers on all aspects of funding, both domestic and international.
Her practice blends borrower work for large corporates and private equity funds, specialist local counsel work (including cross border securitisations) and advising international investors on funding for UK investments as well as advice for banks operating in Scotland. She also works with non-bank lenders, recently advising OakNorth on its three last deals in Scotland.
Commenting on Neil’s addition, Miles Ede, partner and head of real estate for Addleshaw Goddard in Scotland, said: “Neil has been successful in winning new business through submission of tenders and participation in interviews, but more so through securing repeat instructions from satisfied customers and capitalising on opportunities to act for existing clients. We expect that he will continue that success at Addleshaw Goddard.”
Qualifying in 1998, Ms Cassell spent eight years in Allen & Overy’s London banking team in and enjoyed a successful spell in-house at Lloyds Banking Group before returning to private practice.
Alan Shanks, partner and head of finance and projects for Addleshaw Goddard in Scotland, said: “Gaenor’s practice is an exciting addition to our existing practice and will unlock new opportunities. Our team goes from strength to strength and clients are acknowledging this in the scale and complexity of the transactions they trust us with.”
