Sara Stephens - Anthony Gold

Within: Social housing: tenant

Anthony Gold is 'quite simply one of the best housing firms in the market' and is, by some clients' reckoning, 'the very best in housing disrepair claims'. The department is headed by 'an absolute legend' in the housing space, Andrew Brookes, who is instructed by a group of tenants of a prominent London estate in relation to potential major disrepair claims in response to the Grenfell tragedy. The department is home to another 'undisputed expert of housing law', Giles Peaker, who defended a claim brought by a property guardian company concerning the termination of the clients' license to occupy. Additionally,  Sara Stephens represented an individual in connection with a homelessness application, which involved a contested determination of vulnerability. Also recommended are Eleanor Solomon, who represented individuals in homelessness claims, and Timothy Waitt, who acted for an estate resident in relation to a challenge of the council's failure to provide alternative accommodation following an evacuation for safety concerns. Other key contacts include Deirdre Forster and solicitor Jenny Evans.
