Landmark’s barristers regularly appear before Select Committees on hybrid and private Bills. Barristers acted for the Secretary of State for Transport in promoting the Crossrail and High Speed 2 Phase 1 Bills and are instructed on High Speed 2 Phase 2a.

Barristers have also advised and appeared on behalf of petitioners ranging from local authorities to major landowners, manufacturing and development organisations, NGOs, residential and commercial landowners, and national and local community representative groups.

Landmark’s expertise and experience has not been limited to hybrid bills promoting major works and extends to promotion of private bills on a diverse range of issues from London local authority bills, to navigation of inland waterways, regulation of dealers in second hand goods, and transferring commons to new charitable trusts. Landmark barristers have also advised and appeared for petitioners against private bills. On the rare occasions when orders, including DCOs, authorising compulsory acquisition are subject to special parliamentary procedure, Landmark barristers have appeared.
