Bevan Brittan Expands Property and Housing Team in Birmingham

05 March 2020

The law firm Bevan Brittan has increased the capability of its property and housing team in the region with two experienced hires.

Senior Associate Emma Holmes joins from Anthony Collins Solicitors. She advises social housing providers on all property issues including stock rationalisation, right to buy and residential development. She regularly provides technical advice and training, and works closely with agents to bring stock rationalisation deals to the market and successfully take them through to completion. She also advises clients on large-scale residential development projects including joint ventures

Aman Guru joins as a solicitor from Gowling WLG. He is a social housing litigation specialist, advising registered housing provider clients on all elements of their housing management function. He assists clients in settling disputes, including anti-social behaviour, injunctions for breach of tenancy, committals, succession rights, cases for disrepair and general possession proceedings. He frequently advises on proceedings where there are mental health issues, human rights and discrimination

Both will be based at Bevan Brittan’s Midlands office at Edmund Street in Birmingham.

Bevan Brittan was recently named Property Law firm of the Year at the 2019 West Midlands Property Awards. The awards celebrate the commercial property sector in Birmingham and the wider region, recognising the achievements of professionals and the organisations they work with.

Bevan Brittan Partner Rebecca Pendlebury, who leads the firm’s property practice in Birmingham, said:  “I am delighted to welcome both Emma and Aman to the firm. They are a significant addition to our growing legal capability and bring with them considerable experience that will provide our clients with added depths of expertise and continue our commitment to excellent client service.

“They will be joining a strong and expanding housing and property legal team that blends technical excellence with local and market knowledge, and supports a wide range of clients involved in regeneration and development in Birmingham and the wider region.”
