Terra Firma Chambers hailed as ‘stand-out planning stable’ in Legal 500
Terra Firma Chambers has been recognised in the latest edition of the Legal 500 for its strength and expertise across its core practice areas of property, planning, commercial and administrative law.
In the new rankings, released today, members of Terra Firma were ranked as leading practitioners for civil liberties, human rights, public inquiries, and public and administrative law; commercial litigation; company and insolvency; employment; planning, environmental and licensing; property, construction and agriculture; and tax, trusts and pensions.
The guide states: “Terra Firma Chambers is, for some, ‘the stand-out planning stable – it has unrivaled strength-in-depth and as such solicitors know they will be able to get the best counsel available’, but property and tax are also strong suits for the stable.”
The clerking team also received special praise: “The clerks, who ‘always bend over backward to help’, are ‘easily among the best in Parliament House’.”
In addition, there were further recommendations for its dual-qualified members in respect of their practices at the Bar of England and Wales, including an additional four rankings for ‘double silk’ James Findlay QC.
Emma Potter, practice manager at Terra Firma, said: “I am delighted with another strong showing for Terra Firma in the latest Legal 500 rankings. Our position as the leading stable for planning law has again been recognised as has our collective strength in respect of property and tax law. I am also pleased about the glowing feedback on the work of the clerking team – including my ‘particularly impressive’ deputy Andy Veitch.”
