Welcoming Kevin Edwards

April 9, 2024

Following the recent appointment of Jo Evans Sharratts have further expanded their Development Team by appointing a new Partner to work within and strengthen its established Team. Kevin Edwards , has joined the Development Team to work primarily with the Firm’s existing RP and Developer client base and brings with him a wealth of experience.

With nearly 20 years’ experience in new build development work in the Affordable Housing Sector, Kevin has an established reputation for guiding developer/land-owner and investor clients on the delivery of complex and large scale development and regeneration projects. After qualifying at the Homes and Communities Agency Kevin has worked for a number of established Firms operating in the Affordable Housing Sector nationwide including Bevan Brittan (during which Kevin spent time on secondment within a London Borough’s property legal team), Devonshires (acting on various development and joint ventures, as well as DBOM contracts and larger redevelopment projects), Shakespeare Martineau and Birketts.

Kevin’ s experience will assist with the Firm’s continued growth plans and strengthen the existing services being offered to the firm’s impressive roster of clients – a list that includes a number of G15 Providers and other investors and partners working within the Affordable Housing Sector.

On joining Sharratts Kevin commented I am delighted to be joining the team at Sharratts.  The firm is well known for its excellent client-led service and entirely Affordable Housing focussed work.  The sector as whole is going through an unprecedented period of change and challenge on many fronts (the Carbon agenda, planning challenges, Fire and Building safety issues, proposed leasehold reform, increased development costs, pressure on rental receipts and lack of government policy direction to name but a few!) and I am excited to start working with Sharrratts and their clients (and my existing contacts) to help steer through these issues and continue to deliver the affordable housing the country need,

We welcome Kevin to the Firm and look forward to introducing to him our existing clients.
