At the ALEP AGM (3 December), Anna Favre partner at law firm Cripps Pemberton Greenish and Henrietta Hammonds from
Professor Driscoll had presented at ALEP lectures and conferences on many occasions over the years and was well-known for his indisputable knowledge and expertise on the subject of leasehold. He has also spoken and written widely about Commonhold and, as a passionate advocate, was always up for a lively debate no more so than at our lecture on the subject in 2018.
Anna Bailey is ALEP’s founder and Director.
“Highly knowledgeable, a leading figure in our sector and a true gentleman, James will be missed by all of us at ALEP. His experience was second-to-none, as was his influence on those of us who work on enfranchisement. James was a great supporter of ALEP, attending our events and speaking for us with such expertise and with his trademark dry humour. Our thoughts are with James’ family at this time.”
valuers Beckett and Kay were elected as new Advisory Committee members.
Both Eleanor Murray and David Robson were also re-elected for a further term.
Mark Chick, ALEP Director, said: “This year we had an unprecedented number of nominations from members to join the Advisory Committee, which is a great sign of a thriving organisation. All the nominees were extremely high calibre and we are very excited to have Anna and Henrietta join the committee. I have no doubt they will bring additional enthusiasm, experience and expertise to the Association.”
Anna Favre is a specialist enfranchisement and residential landlord and tenant solicitor with over 14 years’ experience. Anna said: “I am passionate about this area of the law and honoured to be part of the ALEP committee and feel confident that I can add significant value to the role.”
Henrietta Hammonds is a RICS Registered Valuer and a partner at Beckett and Kay, which specialises in landlord and tenant valuation, including leasehold enfranchisement. Henrietta said: “I am delighted to have been elected by the ALEP membership and look forward to my further involvement with the organisation.”
Anna Bailey, ALEP Director, said: “It is fantastic to see two talented practitioners come through to join the committee and particularly pleasing that they are both highly experienced women who are making big waves in the enfranchisement sector. I look forward to working with both to continue to grow ALEP’s membership, influence and impact.”
