Glenny LLP has announced the appointment of Alasdair Lowe who joins the firm’s Regeneration, Infrastructure, and Compulsory Purchase Division as a Senior Associate.
Alasdair was previously an Associate at Cushman & Wakefield’s West End office in London where he worked in the firm’s Statutory Valuations team and specialised in Compulsory Purchase Orders (CPO) and Capital Gains Tax valuations. Alasdair has represented both acquiring authorities and landowners affected by CPOs ranging from Heathrow to HS2 and various regenerations schemes. Prior to this, he worked at BNP Paribas in the South West, Gatley Hamer, and GVA Grimley in the Midlands.
At Glenny, Alasdair will build on the firm’s existing work with forward thinking local authorities, infrastructure bodies, and other public sector organisations on their strategic regeneration goals and guide claimants through the complexities of Compulsory Purchase alongside appointed solicitors. Internally, Alasdair will work closely with Glenny’s Residential Development and Strategic Land teams and the firm’s in-house architectural and planning division, Dovetail, to serve clients nationwide.
Paul Aylott, Head of Valuation and Business Space Lease Advisory said: “Alasdair is a significant hire for us and a positive addition to our growing team. He is an expert in all matters related to Compulsory Purchase and has worked with a wide range of clients across the UK on some highly complex schemes. Our clients will no doubt benefit from his experience and market insight.”
Alasdair adds: “Glenny was an obvious fit for me given their strong industry reputation and property market insight. As a firm, they benefit from a dedicated and experienced team who work across many disciplines and for a varied client base. Compulsory Purchase is a very technical area and I look forward to contributing to the company’s already sterling reputation on a national basis.”
Alasdair is a member of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors and of the Compulsory Purchase Association.
