The Planning Law Survey 2019 is an in-depth report naming the law firms and solicitors ranked highest by the consultants, developers and officers that use their services.

Clarke Willmott has moved up two places since last year’s survey while four lawyers from the firm’s 11-strong planning team have been named individually.

Clarke Willmott Partner Neil Baker is ranked highest in third place with clients describing him as “a consummate and highly experienced professional with a commercial and practical focus on the matters in hand.” Another consultant commended his “persistence and tenacity” and “precise and straightforward advice that allow projects to move forward quickly and efficiently.”

Chris Charlton and Caroline Waller, both also Partners, are joint fourth and also making the list of highest rated planning solicitors for the first time is Clarke Willmott Associate Jade Lyus who is a new entry at number 22.

Partner Neil Baker said: “I am extremely pleased to be ranked along with my colleagues in the Planning Law Survey. Having four of our team of eleven solicitors ranked shows our commitment to quality over quantity.

“We are a strong team, working closely together to provide clients with the highest level of service. This is especially evident in Jade’s ranking, which as an Associate is remarkable and places her ahead of more experienced Partners in other firms. We are proud that clients and consultants can feel confident in our advice, regardless of which member of the team is helping.”

Clarke Willmott CEO, Stephen Rosser, said: “There are some truly excellent results in this year’s Planning Law Survey, and I’m particularly pleased to see our ranking improving from sixth to a very impressive fourth place.

“It is also fantastic to see that Neil Baker is considered to be one of the top three planning lawyers in the UK, a notable accolade.

“Planning law is one of the most complex and contentious areas of law so having a reliable, trustworthy and knowledgeable legal adviser is crucial. Our planning team consistently delivers timely commercial advice and provides experienced practitioners to sit alongside clients to guide them through the complexities of the planning system.

“For both the firm’s offering as a whole and individual solicitors to be named in the rankings is a great achievement and further cements our reputation as a market leader.

“The ranking is based on testimonials by senior planning consultants who have worked with the firm, so thank you to our clients who took the time to report on their experiences with us.”

Clarke Willmott is described by one consultant as providing “diligent professional advice with a smile” while another consultant described the practice as “a force to be reckoned with”.

Clarke Willmott LLP is a national law firm with seven offices across the country, including Birmingham, Bristol, Cardiff, London, Manchester, Southampton and Taunton.
