Croftons continues to top Chambers rankings

1 December 2016 • Mike Nuttall

Croftons has maintained our Band 1 ranking in the Chambers legal directory for legal services to the social housing sector in the region, cementing our place as the best in the North West!

In the guide, Chambers said Croftons is a “well-known team working with a number of notable regional housing associations on complex housing matters. They have a particular strength in finding solutions to housing management problems and are creative in their approaches. Not only do they provide high-quality legal services but they do so in a timely manner which is always good value for money."

Star individual

The directory also highlights lawyers who are recognised as legal experts and leaders in their field. Two of Croftons’ Partners, Melanie Dirom and Arthur Chapman, were ranked in this year’s guide, with Arthur (pictured below) being just one of two lawyers in the region to be named in the ‘Star Individual’ category. Melanie ranked in Band 2.

Quoting feedback from clients, Chambers said: ‘Arthur Chapman has many years of experience in social housing law and has, according to clients, "pretty much seen everything before." His practice encompasses an impressive range of social housing matters. Sources say he is "incredibly experienced and very thorough," and a client adds: "I always receive a high quality of service from him. He is very personable and flexible and nothing is too much trouble for him."

Lives and breathes the sector

‘Melanie Dirom heads the housing management team and advises on antisocial behaviour cases and tenancy enforcement matters, among other areas. Sources say: "She lives and breathes the social housing market."’

Croftons’ Managing Partner, Simon Leighton said: “Maintaining this top ranking demonstrates our strong and growing reputation in the housing sector, and is a really positive endorsement of the quality and consistency of our services. Thanks to all our clients who took the time to provide feedback when contacted by Chambers’ researchers.”
