Cass Zanelli

Cass Zanelli, head of hlw Keeble Hawson’s Doncaster-based national property management legal team, has been highly commended in a prestigious industry award scheme.

The accolade, for the Regional Professional of the Year category of the Enfranchisement and Right to Manage Awards 2017, reinforces the PM Legal Services partner’s position as a leading player in her field. The awards were spearheaded by property sector bible, News on the Block.

A national property management authority, Cass regularly addresses key industry conferences and conducts training sessions for the Association of Residential Managing Agents and the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors. She is also a sought-after awards judge.

Cass said: “I am proud of PM Legal services’ strong and highly-respected reputation in the marketplace. This highly commended endorsement is a powerful acknowledgement of how we sustain long-standing partnerships with our national client base – taking the time to understand their needs and deliver a bespoke advice to add maximum value.”

PM Legal Services was established earlier this year when Cass brought her six-strong team to hlw Keeble Hawson. Based in Doncaster, it has a nationwide client base of freehold-owning and property management companies and provides a full range of specialist services.

They include resolving complex property disputes, First Tier Tribunal proceedings, recovering service charge and ground rent arrears and landlord and tenant disputes.

With offices in Doncaster, Sheffield and Leeds, hlw Keeble Hawson is one of the region’s biggest law firms and is at the heart of the business and wider community.
