Senior partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors and a member of the housing corporate services team, I am a nationally recognised leader in the field of social housing and advise registered providers, local authorities and other social housing organisations on major projects, as well as constitutional, governance and regulatory issues.
I specialise in strategic support for executives and boards, advising them on growth and diversification, as well as group structures, stock transfers, corporate and governance restructuring. I led the ACS team advising Red Kite Community Housing on forming an unregistered housing provider, Twenty 11, within its group structure, using recent deregulatory measures, to enable greater freedoms over rent setting and changing tenure.
