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 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.’

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.”
