Cobbetts bolsters social housing expertise

Cobbetts is picking up a new social housing partner to further boost the firm’s expertise in the area following last year’s merger with Walker Charlesworth & Foster in Leeds.

Philip Heath joins Cobbetts’ Birmingham office in November from Midlands firm Wright Hassall. He has particular experience in housing and local government law.

Andy Ballard, head of social housing at Cobbetts, welcomed Heath to the firm. He said the appointment was evidence of Cobbetts’ commitment to investment in this practice area.
