Pinsent Masons named Top Law Firm 2014 by Planning magazine

28 Mar 2014 | 04:51 pm |

International law firm Pinsent Masons has been named the top planning law firm by Planning magazine in its 2014 annual survey, cementing its position as the largest planning and environment legal team in the UK.

The firm also had ten lawyers named in the publication’s league table of top-rated solicitors for 2014, with partners Richard Ford (third), Robbie Owen (ninth) and Iain Gilbey (tenth) featuring in the top ten.

The team’s pole position was an improvement on the previous year’s fourth place, and underlines a year of expansion and high-profile instructions. The firm has seen particular success with overseas investors – notably Chinese developers Advanced Business Parks and Zhongrong International Group – as well as increased infrastructure expertise.

Richard Ford, partner and head of planning, parliamentary and environmental at Pinsent Masons, said: “We are delighted that Pinsent Masons has been voted the number one planning solicitor team in the Planning magazine annual survey for 2014.

“It is a very exciting time in both major development and infrastructure projects and we are delighted to be helping our clients deliver their projects successfully. We would like to thank our clients and contacts for all their support and we will redouble our efforts to provide exceptional advice and service in the coming year.
