Bircham Dyson Bell has moved out of social housing. Well, the practice area at least. The firm's Victoria offices are quite nice, actually.
Head of social housing at the firm Keith Jenkins is to return to his old stomping ground at Westminster-based Winckworth Sherwood. Jenkins' departure leaves the firm without a partner in the area, and while the firm is bullish about serving existing clients, its options are surely limited.

Schofield and Chilton have also both moved on, and Badejo is also soon to depart leaving the firm without a dedicated lawyer in the practice area.
