Partner in the property team

My role

I am a housing partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors. Originally training as a commercial property lawyer, I have acted for housing associations in all aspects of property work and now specialise in development and regeneration, site acquisitions, development agreements, Section 106 agreements, shared ownership and associated work; assisting housing associations to build new housing and in the regeneration of areas.

My experience

I have acted for housing associations on a national basis, in particular on development and regeneration, for upwards of 17 years, and previously led a Housing and Regeneration property team prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors.

I have written articles for the housing press, spoken at sector events, and am a committee member and past chair of the Women in Property North West branch.

I have been rated in Chambers and Partners’ guide to the legal profession in Band 1, and recognised in Legal 500 as a “leading individual”.
