My role

Peter is Senior Partner at Anthony Collins Solicitors along with being a member of the housing corporate services team. He is a nationally recognised leader in the field of social housing and advises registered providers, local authorities and other social housing organisations on major projects, as well as constitutional, governance and regulatory issues.

My experience

He specialises in strategic support for executives and boards, where he advises them on growth and diversification, as well as group structures, stock transfers, corporate and governance restructuring. Peter 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.

Peter was recognised in Chambers and Partners (2019): "very good reputation in the social housing sector, with clients benefiting from his deep experience in transactional and governance issues”.
