Brendan, who heads chambers’ Housing Team, has formidable legal skills both as advocate and in an advisory capacity. His legal skills are complemented by being approachable and friendly when dealing with clients. His legal and social skills are appreciated by our many different clients. He regularly represents Local Authorities, Private Registered Providers and tenants and can provide expertise at all court levels. He has substantial expertise across all areas of Housing Law, being instructed in cases ranging from fairly straight forward possession proceedings to those involving complicated legal issues such as the Human Rights Act 1998 and the Equality Act 2010. He has particular expertise with regard to mental health issues, regularly instructed in matters where tenants lack capacity with the consequent involvement of the Official Solicitor. He has extensive experience in applying for and opposing injunctions and committals, particularly for those based on anti-social behaviour. In addition he has dealt with a substantial number of homelessness appeals. He is frequently instructed in both public law and human rights challenges.  These are areas of law where there is continual development and he is consequently required to keep up to date and is competent to advise with regard to changes in the law and developments in the approach of the courts.

Brendan can provide advice on Housing Management policies and procedures. He has a wide experience in dealing with all types of challenges to housing decisions by way of Judicial Review. Brendan is a panel member of the Bar Pro Bono Unit and has recently been appointed to become a Reviewer for the Unit. He regularly provides lectures and training seminars.

Brendan is certified to accept Public Access instructions.
