Law firm, Shakespeare Martineau, has won a competitive tender to join The Regenda Group’s legal panel framework.
The national firm has secured the opportunity to provide legal support to the North West-based housing group for four years and will be advising on a range of topics from housing management and property, to development and construction.
The Shakespeare Martineau team consists of experts from varied legal backgrounds, including housing management, litigation, social housing and later living. Planning and development support will also be provided by Marrons Planning, a specialist planning consultancy and part of the firm.
With the goal of promoting a healthy, safe, prosperous and sustainable community, the Regenda Group portfolio includes 13,000 units across the North West, and comprises social rented housing, housing for older people, supported housing, private rented property, shared ownership and housing for sale.
Rachel Gwynne, head of social housing at law firm, Shakespeare Martineau, said: “The affordable housing sector is experiencing extraordinary challenges, from the pandemic and climbing unemployment rates to global issues like Brexit and climate change, all while the demand for social housing keeps growing.
“In more ways than one, it’s incredibly rewarding to be working with Regenda, as they continue to support communities in the North West.”
Julie Vincent, director of business assurance at The Regenda Group, said: “We‘re very much looking forward to working with Shakespeare Martineau. Their team has a deep understanding of the issues facing our sector and are excellently-placed to help us navigate challenges, seize opportunities and provide the best service to our customers.”
