Tonia Secker


Tonia's sector of expertise lies in social and affordable housing and she advises across the sector. She has over 20 years' experience advising both the public and private sectors on joint ventures, outsourcings and regeneration schemes and has particular experience of advising government agencies on funding arrangements for the delivery of affordable housing.

Tonia advises housing associations and local authorities on major projects, regulatory and commercial matters and on their powers and functions.

Tonia's work in the sector, particularly for Homes England, the Greater London Authority and local and combined authorities is extremely complex in nature. The work which Tonia undertakes for those bodies involves the creation of funding arrangements which underpin the delivery of thousands of new affordable homes across the country. The scale of public expenditure and investment supported by her work runs into many billions of pounds.

Tonia is independently recognised as a thought leader in the sector, particularly in the field of private/public sector collaboration to secure an increase in affordable housing supply and speaks at housing conferences nationally.

Tonia leads the tier 1 ranked social housing team at Trowers and is herself ranked as a leading individual within social housing (Legal 500 2018).
