Our Housing team are delighted, following a formal tender procurement process managed by specialist legal consultancy Kennedy Cater, to have been appointed to three lots under the new legal services framework for The Riverside Group:
- Property and Development;
- Non-property including Governance, Commercial and Employment;
- Corporate Finance and Banking.
Established nearly 90 years ago, The Riverside Group has grown to become a major provider of affordable housing, care and support services in England and Scotland with over 52,000 homes in management. It operates across over 160 local authorities, and its vision is to transform lives and revitalise neighbourhoods, which we fully support.
Commenting on the appointment, Gemma Bell (Client Care Partner) said: “We’re pleased to have been re-appointed to the legal framework for Riverside. The group has ambitions to become a major national housebuilder building up to 20,000 new homes over 10 years while supporting customers and investing in neighbourhoods. We feel this is congruous with our purpose to ‘improve lives, communities and society’ and we look forward to continuing to provide Riverside with pragmatic and innovative legal support in furthering its strategic plans.”
The term of The Riverside Group’s legal framework agreement is for three years with an option to extend for up to 12 months.
