Croftons’ position as the leading provider of legal services to the housing and regeneration sector in the region has been recognised in the 2016 Legal 500 directory of the best law firms in the UK, published this week.
Following a thorough research process, including extensive client interviews, Legal 500 ranks law firms based on location and practice areas. Croftons was ranked in tier 1 - the highest accolade - along with just three other organisations, cementing our position as one of the very best firms in the North West that specialise in social housing work.
The directory also highlights key individuals who are recognised as experts in their field. Quoting feedback from our clients, Legal 500 said: ‘The specialist housing and regeneration team at Croftons Solicitors LLP acts for more than 45 social housing providers. Jo Savage heads the governance and regulatory team, and the ‘exceptional’ Melanie Dirom heads the housing management team. The ‘proactive’ Arthur Chapman and Julie Loggenberg, who is ‘knowledgeable, quick to respond and approachable’, jointly head the development and property team’.
