Housing Scotland 2019 Sponsors’ Week: BTO

11 and 12 June, Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.

Posted In

Scottish law Firm BTO is one of the sponsors at this year’s SFHA annual conference, Housing Scotland 2019.

BTO has a team of specialists that offer a full range of services to registered social landlords, funding institutions, local authorities and third sector organisations. The team understands the wider housing association sector and where risks are.

BTO was one of the first law firms in Scotland to establish such a multi-disciplinary team and is acknowledged as a market leader. Underpinning its work for RSLs, it is fully aware of key challenges that any organisation operating in the affordable housing sector faces: welfare reform, sourcing appropriate funding, EESSH, regeneration and new build, viability of local and national contractors, data protection and GDPR, legislative reforms, local economy and environmental issues, and renewable energy. 

The team includes an accredited specialist in charity law, Marion Davis. It also includes Paul Motion, an accredited specialist in data protection and freedom of information law. BTO is the only firm in the UK to have successfully challenged a fine imposed by the ICO for a breach of the DPA and is well equipped to advise you on how best to handle a data breach, the ICO and all forms of personal data. 

BTO’s clients cover the length and breadth of Scotland, and it often acts as a sounding board for innovation in the housing sector and as an effective channel between different parties with an interest or role in affordable housing, for example, lobbying on housing matters with regulators and the Scottish Government.

BTO has the ‘go to’ employment law team in the sector for sensitive handling of delicate notifiable events, whistleblowing claims, and high-level grievances and claims. Its team also acts in some of the highest profile and greatest value litigations involving RSLs in Scotland.

For further information about BTO and contact details, please visit its website.

This year’s conference will return to the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow city centre and will be held on 11 and 12 June.

Residential places are now sold out, but you can still attend for the day, with prices from £280 (SFHA members).

If your organisations books three day delegates, you can bring a fourth delegate for the day for free.
