A client reported to Chambers: "They are extremely proactive in resolving issues and offering solutions. I trust them to be able to complete any task I pass on to them."
"It's a good firm that offers excellent customer service and experts in the area of social housing," stated a source.
Arthur Chapman was ranked Band 1, with impressed interviewees describing him as "extremely knowledgeable and always able to offer solutions to any problems we face." He is a longstanding social housing expert, and regularly advises on property transactions such as lease agreements, acquisitions and sales.
Melanie Dirom received a Band 2 ranking and comes recommended for her strong housing management litigation practice, which includes advising on ground-breaking tenancy enforcement disputes involving complex issues of anti-social behaviour.
