We have welcomed legal director Vicci Faulkner to our social housing sales team in Stratford-upon-Avon.

With more than 17 years’ property law experience, Vicci is returning to the firm following four years developing her skillset as a residential property solicitor at Band Hatton Button. Prior to this, Vicci had spent more than six years in Shakespeare Martineau’s social housing team. Her return to the firm sees her bring back a wealth of broad and well-rounded knowledge of property transactions.

In her new role, Vicci will be working closely with our social housing clients and collaborating with the wider team and its development lawyers to ensure a seamless transaction from acquisition to sales. She will also be managing large volume disposals and a wide range of sale transactions, including staircasing, plot sales, right to buys, lease extensions and retirement villages.

Vicci – who will primarily be based at the firm’s Stratford-upon-Avon hub but will be working with clients nationally – said: “I am absolutely delighted to be re-joining Shakespeare Martineau. The firm is an exciting place to be – forward thinking, dynamic and entirely geared towards delivering exceptional client service, which is at the heart of everything we do. I feel privileged to be back working with the social housing sales team and I am looking forward to helping strengthen our offering.

Her appointment is the latest expansion to Shakespeare Martineau’s 31-strong social housing team, which includes development and sales to create a one-stop-shop for social housing clients.

The team recently welcomed finance partner Jon Coane, development legal director Anita Rasaratnam, development solicitor Yasmine Lansqiuot, sales associate Natasha Montaque-Clarke, and corporate governance solicitor Ellis Pugh to support its growth plans.

Emma Smith-Gamble, social housing sales partner at Shakespeare Martineau, said: “It is great to have Vicci re-join the team and we couldn’t be happier to welcome her back home into an area of social housing that she excels at and one where she can make a huge difference.

I know our existing clients will be thrilled to be working with Vicci again. Her passion has always been to help others, so I always knew she would return to this sector – ensuring those most vulnerable remain in a safe environment of a healthy home and being part of a solution that provides long-term accommodation for those most in need.

Shakespeare Martineau is proactively seeking talented people to join the firm on its growth journey, including mergers, team recruitment and lateral hires nationally.
