Joining from CMS as a partner in the Capital Projects practice, he adds further experience in public procurement and infrastructure projects to a team that already has a track record of being at the forefront of market developments.
Maciver first joined MMS as an assistant solicitor in 2002 and left, as an associate, in 2006 to join the projects division of a top tier Australian law firm in Melbourne. On returning to the UK he spent a number of years with Dundas & Wilson/CMS, adding further to his expertise in infrastructure and project finance transactions.
Maciver has advised on a number of prominent PFI/PPP/NPD and hub procurements for public authorities, project consortia and funding institutions. He also has significant experience in transportation, waste, water, energy and outsourcing matters.
Kenneth Shand, chief executive of MMS, said the hire further cemented the firm's position as a leading adviser on infrastructure projects in the UK. He said:
"I am pleased to welcome Stewart back to the firm. His hire reflects the growing importance of capital projects and instructions relating to project financing, and our commitment to building the strongest possible team in that area of law."
Earlier this Summer, MMS promoted 40 of its lawyers to senior positions. The promotions involved staff at all four of the firm's offices and included six new partners and five new directors, alongside 12 new associates and 17 assistant solicitors moving up to senior level.
