GCC President Neil Amner joins Anderson Strathern
Transpost and infrastructure legal specialist Neil Amner, the current President of the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, has joined Anderson Strathern, the Edinburgh-headquartered practice announced today.
Mr Amner, previously a partner at MacRoberts whom he left last August, has been hired by Anderson Strathern as part of a growth strategy across a range of commercial areas including transport, the environment and infrastructure. He becomes a director, with a practice covering the contractual and regulatory aspects of rail (passenger and freight), tram, roads, logistics, bus/coach, aviation, ferry and short sea shipping and harbours operational and infrastructure, having acted for a wide range of public and commercial bodies.
The appointment sees Mr Amner having a firm-wide role rather than being based in a specific legal team. He will be based in Glasgow, reporting to managing partner Murray McCall, and developing business across several of the firm’s sectors and departments.
As President of the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, Mr Amner is about to undertake a trade mission trip to China.
Mr McCall commented: “We have taken the opportunity to bring a hugely experienced and well known commercial lawyer into our business. The expertise, profile and connections that Neil brings is second to none and the new approach of having a firm-wide role is part of developing business across the firm and not in one specific area.”
