A new opening has been created for a Senior Associate to join the Planning team within one of Scotland's leading law firms. Ideally the role would be suitable for applicants within at least 7 years of PQE gained within Planning. The role could be based in Aberdeen, Glasgow or Edinburgh.

The successful candidate will have experience in all aspects of the planning system, contentious and non-contentious. The Planning team works for all-interests in the planning system – developers, planning authorities, statutory consultees, and landowners. Its work includes all aspects of the planning system– from reviewing applications and environmental statements, advising on tactics, negotiating and concluding planning obligations, preparing appeals and inquiry advocacy – and compulsory purchase.  

The team operates across a wide range of sectors, including energy, residential, commercial, BTR, retail, mineral and mining, aquaculture, and large multi-use projects. 

The team is also involved in due diligence work and advising on planning aspects of site acquisition. Along with the Public Law team, the Planning team advises on judicial review of planning decisions. There is a considerable degree of cross-over with other specialisms within the firm, including commercial property, public law and environmental law, and team members often work as part of a wider cross practice area team.
