"A pre-eminent set on the Northern Circuit."
Our specialist local government and social housing department, led by acclaimed sector specialist Paul Burns, has an enviable history of leading the way in the provision of legal services to the local government and social housing sectors in England and Wales.
We advise on contentious and non-contentious matters and appear in all levels of court, up to The Supreme Court. Our members represent local authorities, social housing providers and private landlords, across areas as diverse as:
We have eighteen barristers in chambers appointed by the Attorney General to his panel of counsel for central government work, and have been appointed to all local government and social housing panel counsel schemes which operate in the North. Our members work alongside other specialist departments within chambers to ensure that they provide the highest level of client care.
The department runs the largest annual sector specialist training event of its kind for the local government and social housing sectors.
