Brabners secures place on Riverside Housing legal panel

By Mersey Maritime

Law firm and Mersey Maritime member Brabners has secured a place on the legal panel of one of the UK’s largest housing associations – Liverpool-based Riverside Housing.

Brabners, which has major bases in Liverpool and Manchester, has signed a three-year deal with Riverside which manages more than 50,000 homes nationwide across 160 local authorities.
The practice will advise on a number of core areas including property and development, governance, commercial, employment and housing management.

Brabners is an active legal adviser in the social housing sector, supporting more than 80 associations across the UK including Your Housing Group and Liverpool Mutual Homes. It has worked with Riverside since it was founded as Liverpool Improved Homes in 1928.

The creation of the new legal panel was procured with specialist legal consultancy Kennedy Cater.

Ian Alderson, partner at Brabners, said: “The Government has made it clear that it wants housing associations to play a much bigger role in meeting the UK’s incredible demand for more homes.
“As one of the country’s larger associations, Riverside is integral to this plan. Its ambitious development programme is boosting housing supply and improving some of the most challenging neighbourhoods in the UK.”

Brabners is joined on the panel by Anthony Collins Solicitors, BLM, Devonshires, DWF, Forbes Solicitors and Trowers & Hamlins.
