Preventing behaviour that costs
We believe in prevention as much as cure. Our ASB Advisory Service helps clients develop strategies that stop cases going to court – or even becoming cases at all. Successful approaches to dealing with Anti-Social Behaviour save organisations legal expenses and create more positive cultures.
Recent legislative changes mean landlords have to review their policy on anti-social behaviour. For some that may mean uncertainty about what their policy should now look like. Or how to create one that meets the new demands. Larger organisation can often struggle to get consistency across the way it deals with ASB.
Our ASB Advisory service is led by Chris Grose, a nationally recognised expert in this complex area. He’s backed by our team of specialist lawyers.
Having worked with parties on both sides of conflict, we can create strategies that resolve situations to everyone’s satisfaction. We’ve also worked with the Government to help shape the ASB, Crime and Policing Act, so we know exactly what’s required.
As well as resolving cases of Anti Social Behaviour, we bring fresh eyes and expert knowledge to review and develop ASB policies. And we run training programmes that are designed to help landlords and organisations successfully manage Anti-Social Behaviour before it gets out of hand.
We encourage clients to see us as a critical friend.
A landlord is uncertain how new legislation affects their ASB policy. We give their policy a health check and suggest where they can make improvements. As well as the revised policy we implement training that gives staff a consistent approach to dealing with problems. We also take our lawyers to the training, which gives them insight to the issues and helps inform their legal advice to the client.
At a very basic level, our intervention cuts our clients legal bills. In terms of developing an ethos for an organisation, our understanding of ASB means we can help them create a policy that complies with the changes to the law but also has social value too. And with the right training, staff can deliver that policy in a much more consistent way which is good for the organisation and its tenants.
In short we:
- Bring consistency to your ASB approach
- Develop new policies that everyone can work with
- Resolve issues between parties
- Help prevent anti social behaviour in the first place
- Lead on ASB policy from the front
