DLA Piper has appointed Finlay Campbell as partner in the Real Estate practice in its Edinburgh office.

Joining from Brodies, Mr Campbell’s practice focuses on working with investors in the acquisition, management and disposal of properties in the retail, leisure, office, industrial and alternative market sectors. He also represents corporate occupiers and leisure operators with a particular focus on commercial leasing.

William Naunton, UK head of Real Estate at DLA Piper, commented: “Finlay’s practice complements our offering and will allow him to contribute to the continued growth of our Scottish Real Estate practice, as well as creating opportunities across the UK and beyond. He is a welcome addition to the practice as we continue to build on our prominence in the market.”

The appointment is the third partner lateral hire by the firm in recent months, after Stuart Murdoch and Allan Leal joined from Burness Paull.
