Anderson Strathern appoints renewables specialist as partner
Anderson Strathern has hired commercial real estate and renewables specialist Dixcee Fast from Eversheds Sutherland as a partner.
Ms Fast, who was formerly a trainee and associate at Anderson Strathern, is a leading lawyer on real estate matters in relation to clean energy projects including wind, solar, wave and tidal.
She will work alongside fellow partners Gavin Thain and Deborah Lovell and across the firm’s energy and commercial real estate teams, providing advice and support to clients like Crown Estate Scotland around offshore wind, wave and tidal, and associated pipeline and cable projects.
During her previous stint at Anderson Strathern, she was the firm’s first lawyer to go on secondment to the Crown Estate in London.
Bruce Farquhar, Anderson Strathern’s chair said: “We’re really pleased to have Dixcee back in the fold at the firm. Dixcee was always one of our most talented young lawyers, has taken her career to the next level over the last few years, and is a real asset for us given her expertise in what is one of the most exciting and active sectors of industry, one that is also integral to our offering at Anderson Strathern.”
Ms Fast said: “It’s great to be back at the firm, which has gone from strength to strength in recent years, and to see so many old and new faces alike. Anderson Strathern has so many fantastic clients and is working on some of the most exciting energy and commercial real estate projects happening across Scotland today. We have such a talented team, and I can’t wait to get started.”
