Before taking Silk, Myriam was consistently recognised in the leading UK Legal directories and was ranked as a Band 1 junior by Chambers and Partners since 2016. Myriam is co-Chair of the Property Group at Landmark Chambers.

She is frequently involved in high-profile disputes. Myriam is regularly, and repeatedly, instructed by developers and landowners in connection with disputes relating to the development of land and has considerable experience in advising and acting for such parties including in relation to the construction of development agreements and Section 106 Agreements and disputes related to options, overage provisions, rights to light and other real property issues including easements, restrictive covenants and rights to light.

In addition, Myriam is involved in rapidly evolving areas of property law. For example, she is currently instructed by the Department of Levelling Up and Communities in relation to claims under the Building Safety Act 2022 and in the past few years, has accumulated extensive experience of the complex procedures and legal issues arising in respect of applications and claims against ‘persons unknown’, involving a range of different types of protests, and has regularly appeared on behalf of a range of landowners in the High Court as well as in the Court of Appeal and the Divisional Court (eg in National Highways v Heyatawin [2021] EWHC 3093; National Highways v Buse [2021] EWHC 3404; National Highways v Persons Unknown [2023] EWHC 1073; [2023] EWCA Civ 182; Shell UK Ltd v Persons Unknown [2023] EWHC 1229); Exolum Pipeline System Ltd v Persons Unknown [2023]). 

Myriam also has extensive experience of landlord and tenant disputes, ranging from 1954 Act claims, and disputes concerning the rights and liabilities under leases. Myriam’s landlord and tenant practice covers both commercial and residential property and claims involving guarantees. She recently appeared in the Court of Appeal (AGHR Ltd v Kane Laverack [2023] EWCA Civ 42 in an appeal involving allegations of breach of a user clauses in residential lease and claims for damages). She also has extensive experience in advising clients in relation to issues and disputes arising out of the Land Registration Act 2002, boundary disputes and adverse possession claims. She recently appeared in the Privy Council in an important claim concerning the inter-relation occupational rights and Torrens system of title by registration (Chitolie v St Lucia National Housing Corporation JCPC 2022/0064). She also has experience dealing with disputes under the Electronic Communications Code 2017 and appeared on behalf of the operator in the Upper Tribunal and Court of Appeal in Cornerstone Telecommunications Infrastructure Ltd v Compton Beauchamp Estate Ltd [2019] EWCA Civ 1755.

In addition to her litigation practice, Myriam is often instructed to advise in relation to difficult points of law arising from transactional work.

Myriam is valued for her technical ability, her ‘hands-on’, collaborative and commercial approach, her leadership skills and her extensive experience as a trial advocate.

Myriam has dual French–English nationality, three children, two dogs and enjoys yoga, running and hill walking in her spare time.


Landmark's barristers often work at the intersection of our core practice areas; bringing a wide range of skills, knowledge and experience to bear on a particular dispute or issue facing a client.

Our focus is always on achieving the best possible outcome for our client. By viewing the client's objectives in a holistic way - and not purely through the lens of one rigidly-defined legal area - we deliver the best possible advice and representation in complex matters that engage multiple specialist areas of law. 

Whether it's providing support as an individual cross-practice barrister or a cross-disciplinary team of Landmark counsel, we are able to draw on an outstanding array of complementary skillsets and knowledge bases. This often achieves a better result than instructing multiple barristers from different specialist sets. This also improves the quality of client care through increased levels of communication, quicker response times, and a coordinated approach to clerking and fees, made possible by our team-based cross-practice approach.
