Band 1 Ranking: Chambers and Partners

10 October 2019 • Hannah Whitby

We’re delighted to announce that Croftons has yet again received a Band 1 ranking for Social Housing by Chambers and Partners.

Our housing and regeneration team has been ranked as the best in the North West in the prestigious legal services directory.

The 2020 Chambers UK guide, which assesses the UK’s best law firms and lawyers based on location and practice area, ranked Croftons in Band 1 for services to the social housing sector in the region – the highest accolade available.

Proactive service

Writing in the guide, Chambers UK said Croftons is a “well-known group offering the full range of development and housing management matters, alongside expertise in regulatory and governance issues. Works with a number of notable regional housing associations on anti-social behaviour cases and other complex housing matters.”

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.

Leading individuals

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. "She is knowledgeable, responsive, professional and, most importantly, reliable," say interviewees.

We were also thrilled to see that Julie Loggenberg and Jo Loake were cited as Recognised Practitioners in the 2020 guide.
