As well as being a housing association board member, he brings a wealth of knowledge from 15 years providing legal guidance in the industry.
Jenny Stevens is a Solicitor for the Social Housing Team. Having worked for one of the leading firms of solicitors in the Thames Valley and also as a Senior Property Lawyer for one of the largest housing associations in the UK, Jenny has extensive experience across a wide range of both general and specialist property matters.
Filip Bodnar joins Birketts as a Solicitor within the Social Housing Team. Previously a member of the Housing Management Team at a leading national law firm, Filip advises social housing landlords on all aspects of housing management, with particular expertise in possession claims, breach of tenancy injunctions, anti-social behaviour injunctions and contempt of court proceedings for breach of injunction or breach of undertaking.
On the expansion of the Social Housing Team, Jonathan Hulley, Partner and Head of Social Housing at Birketts, said: “I am delighted to welcome Kevin, Jenny and Filip to our growing team. Each have established themselves in the sector and are well-known for their commitment to both Social Housing and our clients who operate in this sector. I have no doubt that they will become key to our further growth plans and I wish them all the best for the next stage of their careers with the firm.”
