Amy McDowell

Partner, Energy and Strategic Land

Amy is experienced in all aspects of complex property work and has a particular specialism in onshore renewable energy and strategic land development projects – acting for both landowners and developers. Amy provides advice to clients throughout the development of a project, often from the starting point of agricultural-use land through to commercial operation, such as the commissioning of a wind farm or construction of a new town settlement.

Amy’s experience in renewable energy developments ranges from providing advice for small scale hydro developments through to 450MW+ onshore wind developments and land corridors for 1.5GW+ offshore wind developments.

She has acted in various large scale residential and mixed use developments, including a new town development with outline planning permission for circa 5,000 units. She also has considerable experience in complex portfolio sales and purchases.

Amy has particular expertise in assisting clients who are developing projects on land subject to crofting tenure. Where a proposed development site is subject to crofting rights Amy works with the developer to identify and assess the various options available to enable development to proceed.

Amy joined the firm as a Trainee and progressed through our academy process to Partner.
