Housing and Mental Health recognised in Chambers & Partners 2022
In the first year of making a submission to Chambers & Partners, we are delighted that our own partner and expert in housing law Lou Crisfield has been recognised by the legal research directory alongside longstanding endorsements for three partners in our mental health law team.
Lou became a partner in 2021 after nearly a decade with Miles and Partners. She is hugely respected by numerous charities which help people who are homeless, facing eviction or have inappropriate social housing or other problems relating to their accommodation. Lou has been ranked in band 3 lawyers for UK-wide Social Housing: Tenants.
Our mental health team continue to be credited in band 2 for UK-wide Court of Protection: Health & Welfare, with three partners recognised individually:
- Rachel Turner (in band 2) is commended for ‘very good attention to detail and goes the extra mile’;
- Floyd Porter (in band 3) ‘maintains a calm and patient manner throughout which is very reassuring for clients” and is recognised for the way that ‘He helps get people’s voices heard, gives them the right advice, and is a very good communicator.’
- Andrew Bowmer, (a ‘star associate’, although he has become a partner since the Chambers research was published) is described as ‘very thorough and has an incredible attention to detail’ as well as ‘extremely bright and looks into every nook and cranny of a case’.
The vast majority of instructions to both teams comes via personal and professional recommendations and the partners would like to extend their thanks to everyone who responded to the Chambers & Partners researchers.
