Bevan Brittan has expanded its capability in the housing sector with another senior appointment.

Sarah Greenhalgh joins as a senior associate based in Bevan Brittan’s Birmingham offices. She has substantial knowledge and experience within the housing sector, and will focus particularly on corporate, transactional and governance work for housing clients, including housing associations and local government.

She was previously an associate at Anthony Collins Solicitors in the city, where she advised on mergers, corporate re-structures and joint ventures. She is a law graduate from the University of Birmingham.

Sarah said:

 “I am naturally delighted to be joining Bevan Brittan to assist with and grow the exciting work the firm already undertakes for its housing clients. The need to provide more quality housing remains a critical issue – not just here in the Midlands – but also in many areas of country, and I look forward to working with a range of clients and agencies in finding innovative ways to meet this vital social need.”

Bevan Brittan is one of the UK’s market-leading legal advisors to registered providers and local authorities in the housing sector. The firm works with more than 60 housing associations, many local authorities, ALMOs and over half of the London boroughs on their housing and regeneration activity.

Jonathan Turner, partner and head of housing at Bevan Brittan, said:

There is an ongoing need for affordable housing, but - with tightening funding options and resources – new and innovative funding models and governance arrangements such as shared ownership are frequently required. 

“Therefore, I would like to welcome Sarah as a valuable addition to the Bevan Brittan team. She will be joining a group of legal professionals that is now among the market leaders in the housing sector, and which is continuing to expand its capability, knowledge and experience.”
