We’re pleased to announced the appointment of our first in-house legal director as part of our plans to accelerate the delivery of new housing sites in the North West.
Specialist property lawyer Elisabeth Williams has joined the Mulbury team from Manchester law firm Beyond Corporate.
She will provide in-house counsel to our senior team as well as overseeing relationships and projects with external legal partners.
Our director and co-founder, Greg Mulligan, comments: “Elisabeth becomes our first ever in-house lawyer and the second addition to our management team in as many months.
“Her in-depth technical knowledge and understanding of the North West property landscape means she can advise us on all aspects of site acquisitions and disposals, development agreements and development finance agreements.
“She will play a vital role in our business as we look to fulfil our five-year ambition to deliver up to 3,000 new homes across the North West.”
Elisabeth adds: “Mulbury is bringing forward a lot of important and valuable sites in towns and cities across the region, many of them for affordable housing in collaboration with registered providers. I’m looking forward to supporting the firm as it embarks on this exciting chapter of growth.”
Elisabeth’s appointment at Mulbury comes a month after we appointed former Homes England executive Deborah McLaughlin to our board as a non-executive director and strategic adviser.
Qualifying as a solicitor in 2006, Elisabeth was legal director with TLT’s real estate division prior to her time at Beyond Corporate.
