Real Estate Litigation

Real Estate Litigation

Winner of the Chambers & Partners Environment and Planning Set of the Year in 2014 and with 3 of the last 5 planning silks of the year, 39 Essex Chambers has one of the Bar’s leading teams in this field.

Described by Chambers & Partners 2012 as housing “a fine band of leading and much in-demand individuals”, the Environmental and Planning team at 39 Essex Chambers consists of leading practitioners who are widely regarded as combining a strong academic background with pragmatism and versatility and who are easy to work with.

The team draws on the strength of chambers in public, energy, commercial and common law, including local government probity issues, to provide comprehensive advice in all areas of environmental and planning law. Other relevant experience includes EC, international, tax and criminal law.

Members of the team regularly appear in leading cases in the Supreme Court (and previously in the House of Lords), Court of Appeal, and High Court as well as undertaking public inquiry, Crown Court and magistrates’ court work. Other appearances include before the European Court of Justice; European Court of First Instance; the Privy Council and the Hong Kong Court of Final Appeal and courts in the Caribbean.
