Landmark Chambers is ranked by the legal directories as the UK’s leading set in planning law. Chambers & Partners 2017 states that Landmark is "at the top of the market", whilst the 2016 edition stated that Landmark is "London's leading planning set". The latest edition of The Legal 500 states that Chambers has "a stable of top-notch barristers and is the clear leader for planning work", whilst the 2015 edition pointed towards our "broad range of counsel suited to the complexity of any planning matter".
The group is led by no fewer than 25 silks whose names are synonymous with the country’s most high-profile cases in this area.
Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium, Renzo Piano’s Shard of Glass Tower, the Nelson Mandela Statue: these are just a few of the names that have featured in our diaries in recent years, and when a team of barristers were needed to promote Europe’s largest civil engineering project, Crossrail, Landmark was the clear choice.
Landmark’s Planners have regularly been and are continually instructed in major infrastructure inquiries and challenges of national importance. Our “unrivalled breadth of experience and quality at all levels” (Planning Magazine) means that we are the first port of call for all aspects of planning law in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, no matter how big or small the development. Moreover, Landmark’s expertise in public law, property law and environmental law makes us uniquely placed to advise on the many planning cases that overlap in this area.
