BLP’s planning and environment team celebrates over a decade at the top
Berwin Leighton Paisner’s (BLP) planning & environment team has been voted the highest rated law firm in the annual survey by Planning, the leading journal for planning professionals. The firm has occupied pole position in the survey – based on voting by leading planning and environment barristers and solicitors – every year since it was first conceived in 1999.
The survey included major personal accolades for BLP planning partners Tim Hellier and Tim Smith, who both featured in the top five planning solicitors overall and in the top two chosen by planning barristers. James Good, also a planning partner at the firm, has also been ranked in the top 20.
In total four individuals are in the list of those highest rated – the highest of any team in the country.
BLP partner Tim Pugh commented:
“The Planning survey results are powerful peer recognition of the all round strength of our practice and our team. Tim Hellier, Tim Smith and James Good have each had an excellent year and their individual results are the icing on the cake. The team’s objective is to continue to live up to its reputation and to use the results further to strengthen this important aspect of BLP’s market-leading Real Estate offering.”
