Goughs welcomes new Partner to the housebuilding team

By Anita Jaynes on 1 June, 2023

Continuing their growth and expansion, Wiltshire law firm, Goughs Solicitors, welcomes Dan Shaw as a Partner to its renowned housebuilding, land and development team.

Dan has worked with many of the country’s biggest housebuilders and has advised on all kinds of development transactions, from smaller high value sites to 1,000+ unit mixed use developments. Dan is a specialist in the housebuilding sector and advises on site acquisitions, disposals, promotions, joint ventures and collaboration agreements, and has developed a particular expertise in strategic land deals.

On joining the nationally-accredited Land and Development team at Goughs, Dan said, “I am really looking forward to working in a team where everyone is celebrated individually; strong personal relationships can be hard to maintain whilst delivering a high level of complex work, but Goughs recognise that a motivated and equipped team is only as strong as its members.

“In Goughs’ unique approach to land and development, no project is like another, so a one size fits all, tick box exercise won’t cut it, and that’s not what we’re here for. We specialise in navigating the specific constraints of each project.”

Andrew Given, Partner and Head of Land and Development at Goughs, added, “We are really excited to welcome Dan to the team. Dan brings a wealth of knowledge and experience in the housebuilding sector and he will add true value to the firm’s Land and Development team. Our clients usually consider us more like their in-house legal team than external consultants, and it is this level of care and professionalism we know Dan will continue to deliver to the Goughs’ already very strong client-base. Our team continues to go from strength-to-strength and it is great to have Dan on board!”
