Stephen Thompson, also a partner, said: “Neil and Jamie are both passionate about this sector, have excellent reputations and a proven track record, working individually and together, within the social housing arena.

“We are delighted to welcome Jamie to the team, thereby continuing our growth in this specialist area; it further demonstrates our commitment to providing an excellent service in the social housing sector.

“He is joining us at a very exciting time as the firm is growing rapidly and his is a key appointment in our expansion plans. Recruiting and retaining the right people has always been key to our success.”

This is a very significant appointment for us and will certainly enable us to make further strides and impact within the sector.”

Jamie, who is also a Board Member of Cynon Taff Community Housing Group said “Darwin Gray is perfectly positioned to provide the housing sector with what it needs from its lawyers: tailored, commercially focused advice which offers real value for money. I am very excited about my new role and am pleased to be joining Darwin Gray at this key phase in their growth”.
