Proficient in dealing with complex possession claims, homelessness, disrepair matters and a range of long leasehold issues. Also has niche expertise in dealing with health problems relating to poor housing.

Strengths (Quotes mainly from clients)

"If somebody needed a housing lawyer, they would be one of the first I'd recommend."

"Without a doubt they are responsive and keep you in the loop."

"They have a fantastic reputation."

Work highlights Acted for more than 90 leaseholders on their challenge to service charges levied by the London Borough of Southwark. The team succeeded in reducing the charges by several thousand pounds per claimant at the First-tier Tribunal.

Continued to act for Crisis, as joint interveners with Shelter, on three joint Supreme Court appeals concerning the definition of vulnerable in the context of local authorities' duty to house. The case resulted in the Supreme Court opening up the previously restrictive interpretations of the term.

Notable practitioners

Giles Peaker attracts extensive praise for his broad housing litigation practice, as well as for his contributions to thought leadership in the sector. One interviewee comments: "His knowledge is off the chart and his work ethic is incredible. His desire to be creative is what I really enjoy." Another impressed source says: "There are not many solicitors who know more about housing law than Giles."

The "very tenacious" Timothy Waitt frequently undertakes cases relating to housing repair and conditions. In relation to his repair work in particular, one source calls him "a real specialist," further noting: "He knows all about that stuff and not many people do."

Consultant Deirdre Forster continues to impress interviewees, partly because she is "absolutely excellent at understanding clients' needs." According to sources, she provides "exceptional representation" and "always thinks a number of steps ahead and thinks through what the consequences would be in terms of funding and costs."

Sara Stephens is described as "a very formidable advocate and totally abreast of her subject," particularly in relation to the impact of legal aid changes on housing cases. One source praises the way in which she "works fantastically hard," while another says: "She is very thorough, committed and knowledgeable."

Andrew Brookes leads the firm's housing team. He regularly advises right to buy leaseholders on service charge disputes, as well as disrepair cases. Sources say that he has "a very cool head no matter what problems are thrown at him," and appreciate that he "is very good at putting legalistic terms in layman's terms."
