Anthony Collins Solicitors are presenting a series of podcasts with employees to raise awareness about disabilities around the firm.
"I am delighted to have joined the Anthony Collins Solicitors Housing Management team! Prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors, I worked for Birmingham City Council for 14 years. With more than 60,000 properties, I was kept busy! I gained experience across a broad spectrum of housing law, including possession claims, allocations policies, succession claims, injunctions, disrepair, and nuisance. I have dealt with cases concerning disability discrimination where the Equality Act 2010 and the European Convention on Human Rights have been engaged. I have a keen interest in homelessness law and homelessness prevention work and was involved in defending BCC in R (Edwards) v Birmingham CC  EWHC 173 (Admin);  HLR 11, where it was found that the local authority’s homelessness function did not contain the systemic gatekeeping practices alleged.
For the last 9 months, I was Senior Solicitor within the Equal Pay Team at Birmingham City Council. That involved managing a team of 12 and dealing with a very large number of claims. Prior to working for BCC, I worked in private practice. Housing law has always been a passion of mine and ACS, being one of the top law firms supporting social housing providers, seemed the logical place to be in order to further my career. I am now taking a step back from the litigation side of housing and stepping into the world of housing management.
Fun fact?! I enjoy board games and I am on the committee of the Telford Boardgamers Club! I also have a passion for rock music and go to a number of gigs, including Slipknot, Fall Out Boy, The Prodigy (I know – not really rock, but my guilty pleasure!) and Nine Inch Nails."
