Major contract win for Midlands law firm


The firm - which works with around 50 different UK housing associations - will be assisting with a range of legal support - from land acquisition through to conveyancing and litigation work for at least the next three years.

Major contract win for Midlands law firm


"As such, the tendering process for both contracts was extremely competitive, and winning both tenders reinforces the firms reach beyond the Midlands and into other areas of the UK."
Andrew Dudley



Leading Midlands law firm Wright Hassall has signed two major deals to supply legal services to the housing association sector which is on an expansion drive to meet rising demand.

 

Wright Hassall, which is based on Olympus Avenue in Leamington Spa, triumphed in a competitive tendering process to be appointed to the Central Housing Investment Consortium (CHIC) and the South Yorkshire Housing Association (SYHA).

 

The firm - which works with around 50 different UK housing associations - will be assisting with a range of legal support - from land acquisition through to conveyancing and litigation work for at least the next three years 

 

CHIC is a consortium made up of 70 landlords which service over half a million social housing homes across the Midlands, South and South Wales; while SYHA provides nearly 6,000 homes that supports more than 10,000 individuals.

 

Andrew Dudley, Partner and Social Housing Sector Lead at Wright Hassall, said: “The social housing sector is set to grow exponentially over the coming years to meet an increasing demand for housing - particularly as the government looks to accelerate construction to boost the economy - so we are delighted that as a firm we will be able to play our part in supporting this growth.

 

“As such, the tendering process for both contracts was extremely competitive, and winning both tenders reinforces the firm’s reach beyond the Midlands and into other areas of the UK.

 

“CHIC set out three separate areas for companies to submit tenders - including corporate, governance and finance; housing and asset management; and property and development across England and Wales - so we were delighted to have secured a place in all three.

 

“Wright Hassall has been advising housing associations ever since the sector was created in 1965, and takes great pride in strengthening its presence in a sector that is a key part of the company’s history.”
