Southern Housing Group has shown its continued commitment to providing value for money, having saved 35 per cent on legal service fees since bringing our legal counsel in house.
The Group’s in house lawyer, Anthony Armitage started working with us in 2012, initially setting up a new law firm panel. With a background in property law, he has subsequently seen the legal function become integrated into the Group’s day-to-day work, advising on everything from data protection to development projects.
Anthony says, “Saving money is important, but to measure value in monetary terms alone misses the point. Having an in-house legal function at the Group has created a pervading feeling of well-being and improved service quality; benefits which are much harder to quantify.”
