Law firms on Orbit’s panel will provide legal advice where required across a number of areas:

  • Housing Management
  • Development and Property- including Construction, Commercial, Leasehold, Property, Residential Leasehold and site set up
  • Finance / Treasury
  • Human Resources / Employment
  • Governance and Corporate

Steve Eccles, partner at Bevan Brittan who leads the relationship with Orbit, said: “We are very pleased to have been reappointed to Orbit’s panel for another three years. The Group has exciting and ambitious plans for the coming years, and those ambitions match those of Bevan Brittan in terms of growth in the housing sector. There are strong synergies between our businesses, and on that basis we look forward to continuing to support the Group as it delivers on its strategic plans and aims.”
