At Lewis Silkin, we are always looking for good people to join our team - as qualified lawyers, trainees and business services staff.
We'd like to hear from you:
We're proud of the part we play in the delivery of regeneration projects, guiding clients through a maze of complex legal arrangements. We work with all types of social housing providers; we steer our clients through a range of legal issues to maximise efficient delivery and minimise risk.
Combining our leading role in social housing with commercial, construction and planning expertise, we provide a genuinely sector focused service.
Advising a range of clients - providers of housing, care, education, health and leisure facilities and infrastructure, contractors and developers - we understand the commercial as well as legal issues facing those involved in delivering and financing major projects.
Delivery is key. Working collaboratively with all stakeholders towards a common objective rather than treating transactions as battles to be won, we help our clients deliver sustainable projects with as little pain as possible.
We've been working with registered providers, housing associations, charities and local authorities to deliver social housing and affordable homes for more than 40 years.The goal of supplying affordable housing may be the same, but every client is different. We listen and give clear advice in a way which helps our clients to meet their aims and objectives.
So whether you are building new affordable housing; taking a transfer of tenanted stock; grappling with the HCA’s grant requirements; negotiating a nominations agreement or supplying care and support as well as housing; or you just want to speak to a lawyer who knows the ins and outs of the sector for some advice, we can help.
