Two lawyers join growing social housing team at Blake Morgan

Posted on
Two senior solicitors with more combined experience of more than 25 years have joined the growing social housing team at Blake Morgan.

Tim Miles and Lisa Guelfi, who are both based at the law firm’s Southampton office, have arrived from Capsticks, where they supervised the social housing plot sales and asset management teams.

Both Tim and Lisa have worked for some of the country’s largest housing associations and have acted on several politically sensitive regeneration projects and nationally-recognised schemes. Their clients have included most of those in the G15 group of the largest housing associations in London.

Tim is regularly quoted in industry press and national media on housing issues and is highly active on Twitter, where he tweets on social housing issues as @The_SH_Lawyer.

Lisa has a unique perspective on housing association issues from all angles, having acted at the start of her career for buyers of affordable housing.

John Russell, Head of Social Housing at Blake Morgan, said: “I am very pleased to welcome Tim and Lisa to the team.

“Being able to attract lawyers of Tim and Lisa’s calibre shows how highly regarded Blake Morgan’s social housing practice is – not only among the housing association clients we work with but also in the eyes of our nearest competitors.”
