Devonshires is one of the UK's leading full service law firms.
Our experience ranges across strategic advice to executive boards, to dealing with the routine legal work that is part of the management and development of our client's property estates. Housing has been a principle area of our business for over 30 years and we are dedicated to the sector.
Two thirds of our clients are made up of not-for-profit organisations including local authorities, registered providers of housing and care, and charities. In particular, we act for over 200 registered providers. The firm and several of our partners are consistently acknowledged as pre-eminent in this field. We are in tier 2 for social housing in both Chambers and Legal 500.
Our market-leading position in the sector is recognised in both Chambers UK and the Legal 500 directories:
- "They do an excellent job. They are under the skin of the sector, and understand in real depth what the rules and drivers are." - Chambers and Partners
- “Devonshires Solicitors’ national practice is responsive and effective.” - Legal 500
Our work ranges from all of the core services our clients require to the strategic higher level and ground breaking where we work with key stakeholders in shaping the affordable housing framework for existing and new clients.
