Law firm HBJ Gateley Wareing's social housing and regeneration department has maintained the top Tier 1 position in this year's Legal 500, the UK legal directory.
Headed by Heather Pearson, a partner with the firm for over 15 years, the 10 strong team has worked on a number of high profile deals - including Dunedin Canmore Housing Association's acquisition of multi-development sites in Edinburgh, Midlothian and West Lothian. Other clients include Castle Rock Edinvar Housing Association, Weslo Housing Management, Hillcrest Housing Association, Link Housing Association and Unity Bank Trust.
The team has recently expanded its focus to include urban and commercial regeneration, community energy schemes, healthcare and assisted living, as well as traditional social housing.
Heather Pearson said: "I am delighted that the social housing team has once again been named in the Legal 500 series' top tier. This ranking is testament to the commitment and continued dedication of our team."
Published for over twenty years, the Legal 500 Series provides comprehensive coverage on legal service providers across Scotland and worldwide.
