UK top 50 and leading Scottish law firm Brodies LLP has been appointed as a strategic partner to provide legal services to one of the UK's largest social housing providers, Sanctuary.

Following a competitive tender process, Brodies was appointed to Lots 7 and 8 of Sanctuary's legal panel to provide advice across the full spectrum of its activities in Scotland including development and construction (transactional and contentious), housing management, corporate, finance, commercial, regulatory, and employment. The appointment runs for seven years, from 2024 to 2031.

Sanctuary provides around 125,000 accommodation units across the UK.

Brodies partner Peter Kelly, said: "We are looking forward to providing support to, and working with, Sanctuary. Our appointment to its legal panel is testament to the cross-practice expertise and experience that our lawyers provide.

"The social housing sector plays a critical role in supporting communities across the country and in doing so, has to navigate a range of regulatory matters and legislative change, as well as wider, societal issues like sustainability and the changing needs of the UK's population. Our role is to help organisations to navigate the challenges and opportunities that arise."
