Weightmans selected to advise on Anti-Social Behaviour Bill
A lawyer at national law firm Weightmans LLP has been invited by the government to scrutinise and advise on provisions in the draft Anti-Social Behaviour Bill, published last week.
Jane Plant, Associate at Weightmans, will attend the consultation on behalf of the Property Litigation and Social Housing teams at Weightmans in January 2013, where she will participate in a small meeting of experts to work through the possession provisions in detail and give her views on how they may need to be revised or refined in preparation for the introduction of a Bill in Parliament.
The Home Affairs Select Committee has announced that it will be conducting the pre-legislative scrutiny of the proposals in the New Year and will be also accepting written contributions from the firm, including input from Property Litigation Partner Sian Evans.
“We are delighted to have been invited to give our thoughts on the new Anti-Social Behaviour Bill before it becomes law.
“Being consulted on new law is a great honour reserved for true specialists and we’re thrilled to be identified as leaders in this field.”
“The Bill will really affect the way in which our clients are able to deal with complaints and disruptive beghaviour so we’re really looking forward to being able to have our say on this crucial piece of legislation.”
