Hannah Langford aNational law firm Clarke Willmott LLP has enhanced its market-leading Social Housing team with the appointment of 11 new team members, and counting.

Following some recent departures, the firm has taken the opportunity to re-shape and grow the team, which has a presence in each of Clarke Willmott’s seven offices.  

The team has been joined by Partner Hannah Langford, who was previously a property and contracts lawyer at Clarion Housing, one of the UK’s largest social housing providers.

Also joining the team are Senior Associates Joanna Jackson, previously a specialist at Devonshires, and Angela Byrne who has 25 years’ experience in Social Housing litigation, as well as Associate Muzammel Mian, an experienced social housing solicitor previously with the Metropolitan Housing Trust.

Three new solicitors: Sarah Cave, who has previously worked in Devonshires property team, Victoria Smith who worked for Social Housing specialists Glazer Delmar and Alexis Campbell who comes from Simply Social Housing Limited, together with trainee legal executive Nafisa Bibi, previously in house at social housing provider Guinness, have also joined  the  team.  The team will also be supported by three new paralegals: Ashleigh Draper, Cecilia Fletcher and Laura Rolls.

Kary Withers, Sector Head of Social Housing at Clarke Willmott said: “Over the past six months we have been reshaping our Social Housing team into specialist units and recruiting fresh, talented industry experts.

“Because Clarke Willmott has such an established reputation for the quality of its Social Housing work we have been able to attract some of the best and most experienced people in the sector, as well as a few up and coming legal stars of tomorrow.

“The new joiners add some skills that will help our clients in the Social Housing sector meet the exciting challenges they face. We wanted individuals who have actually worked in the sector for Social Housing providers. They are best able to understand the needs of our clients as they have been there at the coal-face and understand the challenges that our clients wrestle with every day.  We are very excited to have enhanced our sector offering in such a strong way.”
