Here is what some independent sources say about our Social Housing team:
Headed by Jennifer Bennett, Coffin Mew LLP’s team is ‘one of the few true specialists’ in the sector. The group acts for a wide range of housing associations and developers on the full range of issues, and in 2011 handled a number of contentious housing benefit and tenancy matters. Litigation expert Michael Owen is ‘a clear leader in his field’, and attracts praise for his anti-social behaviour expertise.. - Legal 500 Directory 2012
This respected team has a very good reputation for advising clients on a broad range of issues, including affordable housing initiatives, asset management, governance, development and acquisitions. Market sources appreciate that "their advice is always very clear. They always give us detailed choices and options, and we always get excellent value from them."
KEY INDIVIDUALS Jennifer Bennett has recently once again become a major fee earner. One impressed client valued the fact that Bennett "has taken a lot of time to get to know us and our business, and therefore her advice is very well tailored."
Michael Owen is "entirely personable" and is a regular speaker for national training providers such as Social Landlords Crime and Nuisance Group, Capita and the Chartered Institute of Housing. "He is very well known nationally for most of the litigious work, in which he is absolutely brilliant," say interviewees.
