Shoosmiths moves into Glasgow
Shoosmiths has confirmed the opening of a Glasgow hub, building on the success of its Edinburgh office.
Barry McKeown, who recently joined Shoosmiths real estate team as a partner, is responsible for further developing the firm’s presence in the west of Scotland.
The hub is an agile working environment based within the Spaces development on West Regent Street in Glasgow city centre.
Mr McKeown said: “In a business sense, the Edinburgh and Glasgow markets are very different. Shoosmiths presence in Glasgow ensures we can directly support our west of Scotland client base, including those involved in the house-building sector and residential developers.
“Drawing upon Shoosmiths wide-ranging legal expertise across 13 locations, we can also offer clients in Scotland and throughout the UK invaluable industry insight and legal knowledge to support their businesses. This includes large UK employers who are currently based or aim to be based in Glasgow and have occupier requirements.”
Janette Speed, head of Shoosmiths in Scotland, added: “Shoosmiths strategic decision to open a hub in Glasgow underlines our confidence that Scotland offers further opportunities for sustained growth.
“The development of our hub in the west of Scotland will further increase Shoosmiths capacity to advise our growing and valued bank of clients, including those operating within the real estate and corporate sectors.”
