He is also listed as one of the top-rated juniors in Planning Magazine’s annual survey. The legal directories have included the following comments:
“Another great market favourite is Robin Green, a planning expert who assists local authorities in the defence of challenges brought by individuals, developers and NGOs.”
“...the experienced Robin Green, of whom one client in particular could not speak highly enough: "His advice was excellent, provided in a timely manner, and was pertinent and straight to the point." Major residential developments and national infrastructure projects have formed the bulk of Green's recent caseload.” (Chambers UK, 2013 ed.)
“Another sought-after junior is Robin Green who is described as "exceptionally good" by his opponents. His work often has a planning slant, but he has a number of regular clients who instruct him in various aspects of local authority work relating to issues such as housing, finance and public procurement to name but a few. He recently appeared in a judicial review challenge to a Local Development Plan in Wales” (Chambers UK, 2012 ed.)
“Also admired for his advocacy is Robin Green, who is ‘fantastically engaging in court.’ He has a loyal client following” (Chambers UK, 2011 ed.)
“Robin Green's advocacy skills inspire hard and fast praise: 'Even if he's confronted with a far from strong case, he makes the best of what he's been given and runs with it.'" (Chambers UK, 2010 ed.)
“Billed as a formidable junior, Robin Green's ‘ability to forensically rip his opponent’s case apart’ has won him widespread respect. Although planning is his strong suit, he also handles highway and housing matters.” (Chambers UK, 2009 ed.)
Robin was called in 1992. He is a member of ALBA and PEBA.
