Landmark’s unique blend of expertise across a hugely diverse range of practice areas make it uniquely placed to offer the ideal mix of barristers with the skills, knowledge and experience to meet your needs.
Rather than having to instruct multiple specialist barristers from different sets, Landmark is able to pull together the optimal team from within chambers. Indeed an individual barrister may well be able to assist with cases raising issues across more than one of Landmark’s core practice areas without the need for instructing additional counsel.
Clients tells us that this helps with effective communication, speedier response times, a more coordinated approach to strategy and tactics for the case in hand, as well as providing clear leadership for the wider case management team and defined roles for its members.
By having a lead Landmark barrister liaising with peers from the same set, a blended Landmark team is often able to achieve a positive result faster and in a more cost-effective fashion than if a client had commissioned multiple instructions with a variety of individual counsel.
Our skilled practice management team is well placed to advise on the most suitable barristers – both in terms of knowledge and seniority – and are not constrained by the traditional ‘silo’ approach. For example it may be that a planning Silk is lead counsel on a particular matter and that they are able to draw upon colleagues from the property, public, environment, rating and valuation, and/or public teams to bring their specialist knowledge to the case.
This often results in a winning strategy as legal issues can be considered in a holistic way and always with the pragmatic and practical approach to problem solving that characterises the Landmark approach.
