Our Housing team are delighted following a formal tender procurement process to have been appointed to three lots under the new multi-million-pound legal services framework for The Riverside Group.
The event is intended to bring together housing professionals in the legal sector, housing associations, local authorities, police and all other interested organisations in order to provide a forum for up to date legal developments and information on housing law for those working in the Midlands.
The launch event will focus on Anti-Social Behaviour and confirmed speakers include:
- District Judge Shorthose; and
- Kuljit Bhogal, Barrister from Cornerstone Barristers.
Other topics will be announced for future events on the night. All professionals are encouraged to put forward any topics which they would particularly like to see covered at future events.
The aim of the association is to develop a stronger network of housing professionals across the Midlands and joining information will be available on the night.
The launch event is free of charge and Anthony Collins Solicitors are delighted to be hosting it at their Birmingham office.
