Lucy Worrall has joined Anthony Collins Solicitors from Forbes as head of housing and regeneration.
Anthony Collins was founded in Birmingham and opened a Manchester office at the start of this year, with eight staff now working from the city. Worrall is the first lateral partner hire.
She brings experience in development and regeneration to the social housing team, and will build on the firm’s national sector profile, working with local authority colleagues at the firm to support the delivery of social housing across the North West.
Jonathan Cox, head of the Manchester office and head of social housing at Anthony Collins Solicitors, said: “By investing in a Manchester office, and publishing our inaugural social impact report, the firm is cementing its national credentials. We are now attracting talented people like Lucy from across the country, who want to work for a social purpose law firm – we’ve hit our initial targets for growth in our Manchester office 18 months early.”
