Three New Partners Announced at Anthony Gold

Anthony Gold is delighted to announce that three of its Senior Associates have accepted offers to become new Partners in the firm. Sarah Cummins, Robin Stewart, and Tom Dickinson all become Partners with immediate effect.

Sarah Cummins is a specialist in residential landlord and tenant disputes. Her practice involves complex possession actions, disrepair and housing condition claims and disputes concerning the regulation and enforcement of private rented homes.  Sarah also advises on co-ownership disputes and cases involving trusts of land. She has been involved in key cases affecting the private rented sector including the Court of Appeal case of Trecarrell House Ltd v Rouncefield.

She has extensive experience of cases involving Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) including property licensing, management, and council tax. She has represented landlords in tribunal appeals relating to licence conditions, improvement notices, prohibition orders and rent repayment orders. She assists landlords to navigate the complex rules that apply to HMOs and provides practical advice when problems arise with tenants or the Council.

Sarah has a particular interest in the student rental market and the distinctive requirements of the sector and has experience advising University teams.


Robin Stewart specialises in property litigation, especially landlord and tenant disputes, and the regulatory law relating to rented property.

His practice involves acting for landlords, tenants, agents and other property professionals, homeowners and businesses of all sizes.

Robin also advises property agents on consumer law and trading standards and advises property professionals with updating their terms of business and tenancy agreements.

He often acts in tribunal appeals relating to property standards and HMO licensing, and he has been involved in leading cases concerning property licensing in the Court of Appeal. He also acts for businesses, company directors and private landlords in regulatory cases in the criminal courts.

Robin is already well known in the private rented sector. He is a member of the steering group of the National HMO Network and the Property Redress Scheme Advisory Panel, and is a regular speaker at HMO Network Conferences, and training events.


Tom Dickinson specialises in contentious trust and probate litigation and has a broad caseload which includes will disputes, trust disputes, disputes involving Personal Representatives and trustees and claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975.

He has experience acting for vulnerable individuals and regularly undertakes work on behalf of the Official Solicitor.

Tom has been recognised as a “Key Lawyer” in this area by the Legal 500 in every edition since 2020 and he was ranked as a “Rising Star” in 2023.

In 2020 he completed the ACTAPS (Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialists) diploma, the leading accreditation in this field.   He is a member of ConTrA (Contentious Trusts Association) and a committee member of the South London Law Society.

Tom looks forward to continuing his work within the contentious probate team which is going from strength to strength.  He relishes the opportunity to play an even bigger part in the firm’s success going forward.

The move sees Anthony Gold building on its current strengths in Housing and Civil Litigation, where the firm already has strong rankings in both Chambers and Legal 500.

Sarah, Robin, and Tom are promoted from Senior Associate at the firm and are based out of the firm’s London Bridge office.

Managing Partner, David Marshall, said: “I am delighted that all three individuals have accepted offers to become Partners. This marks a strategic initiative to build our Housing and Civil Litigation offerings and solidifies our firm’s commitment for future growth.”
