Addleshaw Goddard appoints real estate investment expert Neil Hogg
Addleshaw Goddard has appointed real estate investment lawyer Neil Hogg as partner to its real estate team in Glasgow.
Neil Hogg brings 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.
Mr Hogg’s key focuses are property investment, asset management and development work. However, in recent years, he has further developed particular specialisms in hotels and student accommodation and has been involved in various ground-breaking projects for local authority and other public sector clients.
The firm’s real estate team acts for some of the foremost institutional investors, banks, developers and retailers including Standard Life, Scottish Widows, Threadneedle, British Land, Peel, Primark and Co-op.
Miles Ede, partner and head of real estate for Addleshaw Goddard in Scotland, said: “With Neil’s appointment, our real estate team – which is at the heart of our growth plans – goes from strength to strength. He is undoubtedly a high-profile real estate lawyer in the Scottish market and will be a great addition.
“Throughout a very successful career stretching across almost three decades, he has honed a strong practical and technical legal ability, underlined by a focus on finding the right solutions for clients as quickly as possible.
“Indeed, one of Neil’s real strengths lies in client care and developing great relationships. He’s particularly known for being extremely responsive and delivering an unsurpassed level of service.
“He 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.”
