Following a successful tender process, we are delighted to announce that we have been appointed by Anchor to their new legal services panel.
Anchor, England’s largest not-for-profit provider of housing and care for people in later life, provides retirement housing to rent and to buy, retirement villages and residential care homes, including specialist dementia care. In total, Anchor serves more than 65,000 residents in 54,000 homes across almost 1,700 locations.
The new panel comprises: Devonshires, Gowling WLG, Capsticks, Freeths, Howes Percival, Trowers & Hamlins and Walker Morris.
The panel will run for an initial period of three years and provide a full service legal advice.
Donna McCarthy, Head of Housing Management and Property Litigation, said “Care is rapidly moving up the political and social agenda and the pandemic has brought a renewed focus on the critical nature of care services. We look forward to supporting Anchor, working collaboratively with the other panel firms, in supporting them with service delivery and to enable them to provide more care and support to older people.”
Emma Costello, Head of Legal at Anchor, said: “Anchor is committed to partnering with lawyers who not only bring their own specialisms and expertise to the table but also share our core values. We were overwhelmed with the response to our most recent invitation to tender and are delighted to announce that we have secured a new legal services panel with sector-leading advisers, supporting us operationally as well as assisting in the delivery of our progressive growth programme to continue to provide homes where people love living in later life.”
