Shoosmiths lands place on Taylor Wimpey’s Scottish legal panel
UK law firm Shoosmiths has been appointed to Taylor Wimpey’s Scottish legal panel.
Shoosmiths is the only firm to secure a place on the housebuilder’s legal roster in Scotland, and England and Wales following the conclusion of Taylor Wimpey’s latest panel review.
The Scottish panel will commence in January 2022 for three years. Shoosmiths’ appointment is on a full-service basis, with the firm able to provide legal support on matters including core real estate, planning, strategic land, construction and regulatory.
Janette Speed, real estate partner and head of Shoosmiths Scotland, said: “A month on from opening our new office in Glasgow, this latest appointment reaffirms our strategy for growth and the strength of Shoosmiths’ Scottish real estate division and presence in the living sector. Taylor Wimpey shares our focus on providing an excellent client experience, which we believe will help to underpin our work together.
“We know many of the Taylor Wimpey team and are looking forward to building on these already strong relationships.”
Shoosmiths is the only new addition to Taylor Wimpey’s legal panels, with a total of four law firms appointed in Scotland and seven in England and Wales.
