Slaughter and May is advising the Ministry of Defence on its successful defence of claims by Annington Homes
Slaughter and May is advising the Ministry of Defence on its successful defence of claims brought by Annington Homes in connection with MOD’s use of statutory enfranchisement rights in respect of military service family accommodation. The High Court has dismissed all of the challenges brought against MOD and found that the MOD has acted lawfully in seeking, successfully, to establish MOD’s right to enfranchise. MOD will now consider the potential implications for securing better value for money for the taxpayer in light of the High Court’s findings.
Slaughter and May has worked closely throughout the proceedings with Forsters LLP and MOD Legal Advisers.
