Project Description

Housing Development of the Year – Sponsored by Pinsent Masons

Pinsent Masons is a full-service international law firm. We respond to the pressures and opportunities facing businesses globally with legal excellence and innovation. We were named Law Firm of the Year at The Lawyer Awards 2018.

With 24 office locations on four continents, wherever your commercial interests take you, we have the footprint and expertise to provide support. We recognise that giving a first class service goes beyond just legal excellence. A deep understanding of local cultural and commercial issues, and an innovative approach, underpins all of our advice. We understand the key political, economic, commercial and regulatory issues, helping to minimise risk and maximise opportunities.  That’s why we have more Tier 1 rankings in The Legal 500 UK edition than any other firm.

We have market-leading expertise in five key global sectors:

  • Advanced Manufacturing & Technology
  • Energy
  • Financial Services
  • Infrastructure
  • Real Estate.

We act for between 100-160 local authorities each year.  We have been appointed to more local authority panels than any other firm – extending from London to Glasgow.  We are at the forefront of cutting edge work for local government often being the first ‘port of call’ to develop new concepts.  Our market leading ‘Structured Solutions’ team is nationally recognised for its expertise in finding positive legal solutions for the delivery of services and  assets for and by local authorities where traditional funding is limited. Successes for this concept have included joint ventures, Local Asset Backed Vehicles, Local Housing Companies, shared services and other new service delivery models.

We provide a strong local presence with an excellent understanding of the local market, backed up by our innovative technologies and global resources.”
