Ward Hadaway appoints Partner to Built Environment team

Ward Hadaway has appointed a new partner to the Built Environment Team in Leeds.

Jennifer Robinson brings more than 20 years’ experience in the social housing sector.

Robinson will lead a multi-disciplinary team of lawyers, qualified plans technicians and support staff to provide a complete range of services to the social housing sector.

She deals with all aspects of property work including site assembly, land acquisition and development for affordable and mixed tenure housing through a variety of structures, large scale portfolio acquisitions, disposals and securitisations, stock swaps, landlord and tenant matters, asset management and projects.

Jennifer Robinson said: “Ward Hadaway is a UK Top 100 firm with an excellent social housing practice and I’m delighted to be joining such a great team.

“The crisis in affordable housing has only been exacerbated by the current political, social and economic climate. My experience will help us develop further the firm’s full service offering, assisting both existing and new clients with their important work in this sector.”

John Murray, partner and head of social housing at the firm’s Leeds office, added: “This is another significant appointment and I am delighted to welcome Jen to the team. Bringing in somebody of Jen’s calibre and experience clearly demonstrates our commitment to grow and expand our social housing service and position Ward Hadaway as one of the leading legal firms within this sector.

“The team has grown substantially over the last couple of years, and due to a number of new client wins, we are looking to further strengthen our social housing team with more appointments across all three regions where we operate in Leeds, Manchester and Newcastle.”
