Clarke Willmott LLP

Clarke Willmott is a leading law firm that takes pride in being different. Our strong reputation is built on genuine client relationships and our exceptional people – each chosen for their industry knowledge and passion for their field, as well as their first-class legal credentials.

Our national social housing team is one of the largest in the UK and is a leading provider of comprehensive legal services to the sector. We work with over 100 registered providers and are known for our high-quality commercial advice and seamless service.

Our team comprises specialists from across the firm with particular expertise in social housing and includes a number of lawyers who have joined us after working in-house for registered providers. This gives us a unique understanding of the challenges faced by registered providers, helps us to ‘think like a client’ and deliver added value services that are truly meaningful.

We are recognised for our sector expertise by the legal directories, Chambers and The Legal 500, and pride ourselves on our ability to provide innovative solutions and high levels of service to our clients.

"Clarke Willmott LLP provides ‘exceptional advice’ to its registered provider client base due, in part, to the ‘superb knowledge’ of joint practice heads Lindsay Felstead, Oliver Smedley, Kary Withers and Vicky Kells, who head up the firm’s housing management, development, property litigation and securitisation teams respectively."
