Freeths leap into top 20 planning law firms

Freeths have been recognised as a top 20 planning practice for the first time in Planning magazine’s annual Planning Law Survey 2017.

Ranked 11th in the highest rated planning law firms, this is an impressive leap from 27th in 2016. The firm is also celebrating being recognised as a leading employer of planning lawyers, at 23rd in the league table of UK firms.

The survey results are compiled from feedback given by solicitors, planning consultants, planning officers, developers, professional bodies and local government lawyers. Over 300 responses were received from across the board, with one consultant commenting that Freeths “offers a proactive approach to finding solutions”.

Chris Waumsley, Head of Planning at Freeths, commented:

“This is a great achievement for our national team. We have expanded quite significantly over the past 12 months and now have our highest number of qualified solicitors and planning specialists whose skills complement each other and enable us to provide a full service to our clients.”
