Housing & Property


Sioned has specialised in social housing law for over 13 years and became a Senior Associate in May 2022, having joined the firm in September 2018.

Sioned has particular expertise in public law, human rights and discrimination. She is regularly sought out for her in-depth knowledge upon the application and workings of homelessness legislation and to provide expert commentary within industry publications.

Sioned is recognised amongst her peers for her litigation success in the High Court on behalf of her vulnerable client base and for her tenacious approach in representing the homeless in bringing homelessness appeals to the court upon a point of law.

Sioned is regularly instructed by national charities and has developed a niche practice in representing women fleeing domestic violence and trafficking. Sioned is well regarded for advancing the development of the law as it affects these clients, recently consulting Crisis upon their response to a Law Commission Review on the inclusion of the homeless being protected by hate crime laws and being a founding member of the National Housing Domestic Abuse Advice Forum.

Sioned was recently instructed by the Sex Workers Union to successfully defend a claim for trespass against a sex worker, brought in this manner to circumvent the covid rules, it set a precedent as to a fundamental issue of housing law that a claim for possession may only be brought against one dwelling.

In 2022 Sioned successfully led an appeal to the Court of Appeal on behalf of an EEA national fleeing domestic abuse to challenge the homelessness eligibility rules for those with pre-settled status post Brexit. She engaged national bodies and charities to act as interveners in support of the appeal. The case settled favorably.
