Lindsay FelsteadClarke Willmott LLP has been appointed to serve on a panel of leading housing specialist law firms as part of a £15 million legal services framework agreement.

The firm is among a group of law firms named by the Central Housing Investment Consortium (CHIC), which supports housing providers and local authorities to ensure they can provide the best service to their residents.

Clarke Willmott, whose national specialist social housing team is one of the largest in the UK, was appointed to the consortium’s corporate, governance and finance and housing and asset management ‘lots’.

Lindsay Felstead, who jointly heads up Clarke Willmott’s social housing sector alongside Vicky Kells, said: “We are delighted to have been reappointed to the CHIC framework and very much look forward to continuing to

work with existing clients and developing future relationships.”

All legal firms were selected through a competitive Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) tender process and who ‘demonstrated a robust service offer and cost competitive pricing’.

They were selected to due to their ability to provide an extensive range of value added and social value benefits including training opportunities, advice to improve employability of tenants and community engagement.

CHIC, formed in 2010 as a not for profit organisation, has around 70 member landlords who manage more than half a million social housing homes across the Midlands, South and South Wales.

Clarke Willmott’s social housing solicitors act for registered providers and registered social landlords across England and Wales, including housing associations, local authorities and arms-length management organisations (ALMOs).

The team acts for more than 100 Registered Providers as well as major frameworks including HALA, CHIC, SEC and ASW.

The new framework will go live on Wednesday, July 1.

Clarke Willmott is a national law firm with regional offices in Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
