I am a partner in our housing management team of 14 and co-lead our housing litigation services. I provide specialist advice to social landlords on all types of housing-related litigation and advice, review policies and procedures, devise and enjoy delivering training and assisting landlords in handling serial complainers and the regulator’s serious detriment investigations. I have run numerous appeal and judicial review cases on leading housing law issues over the last decade.
I am also a deputy district judge (DDJ), sitting part-time in county courts in the Midlands’ circuit.
I am ranked a Band 1 social housing lawyer in the Chambers 2019 legal directory, described as “brilliant” and “highly enthusiastic, practical and experienced”. Legal 500’s reviews say my “no-nonsense approach to litigation also gives [her] real gravitas in the sector”. I was elected to the Social Housing Law Association national committee in August 2017 and also joined the trustees of a small international children’s charity, Global Care, based in Coventry.
