Terra Firma receives top ranking from Chambers UK

Monday 29th November 2010

Terra Firma Chambers has been awarded top ranking in the latest edition of Chambers UK Directory (2011). For the third consecutive year the Chambers has been given a Band 1 ranking for Planning with five of its members recognised as leading practitioners in this field.  In addition, members of the Chambers were ranked under Commercial Dispute Resolution, Agriculture and Rural Affairs, Environmental, Licensing and Local Government.

The clerking team was again singled out for special praise.  ‘Although only formed in January 2008, Terra Firma Chambers is already seen as "the number-one choice" for planning matters in Scotland. The stable houses development experts across an array of areas, including the energy, retail, residential and local authority sectors. Sources agree that the talented advocates are well supported by helpful, efficient and approachable clerks.’ 

Vice Chairman of Terra Firma Chambers, Douglas Armstrong QC said "We are delighted to have been recognised by Chambers UK as the leading set for planning matters in Scotland.  It is equally pleasing to have our members ranked for their expertise across our core practice areas.  In addition, it is of great credit to our clerking team that their contribution has once again been acknowledged.”
