Birmingham law firm Anthony Collins Solicitors has announced a new senior partner. Peter Hubbard will formally take the reins from Romaine Thompson in May 2014.
The announcement signals the end of a nine-year tenure for Thompson, who joined the firm in 1989 and became senior partner in 2005. Under her leadership, Anthony Collins Solicitors has secured its position nationally as a specialist practice in the charities, social housing and local government sectors as well as growing its work for private individuals in the West Midlands.
Currently a partner specialising in the social housing sector, Hubbard is known for his projects and governance work with registered providers, local authorities and arm’s-length management organisations. Advising on nationally recognised housing projects, he has been ranked ‘Leading Individual’ in Chambers UK for eight consecutive years and is also a past Commercial Solicitor of the Year at the Birmingham Legal Awards.
Hubbard will continue to work with key clients and becomes only the fifth senior partner since the firm’s launch in 1973.
