Bevan Brittan is one of 17 firms to have been appointed to the Places for People Legal Services Panel for four years until 2025.

Bevan Brittan will provide legal advice and services across nine areas including property, development, corporate, finance, housing services, employment, commercial, compliance and healthcare.
