Anthony Collins Solicitors’ Social Housing practice are celebrating securing a place on One Manchester’s legal panel. 

The panel, which will run for three years with the option to extend beyond in two additional 12 month periods, saw the team appointed onto seven lots which include:

  • Property
  • Development
  • Corporate & Finance
  • Employment
  • General Commercial Advice
  • Compliance
  • Mutil-facet, complex advice

The appointment continues to build on a successful year for the firm’s nationally-ranked Social Housing team, which is expanding into a new Manchester office from January, led by Head of Social Housing Jonathan Cox

Jonathan said, “One Manchester has been a long standing client for the firm, and we’re excited to continue supporting their strategic role in developing communities through innovative partnerships across Manchester.  This success, along with our strong housing client base across the North West, is a major reason for opening our new Manchester office and recruiting additional property lawyers to support the firm’s work.” 

Formed in April 2015 from a historic merger between two of Manchester’s largest housing associations (City South and Eastlands Homes), One Manchester own and manage more than 12,000 homes in central, south and east Manchester.
