Cornerstone Barristers ranks as a leading set in multiple practice areas – Legal 500 2023

29 Sep 2022

Cornerstone Barristers continues to be ranked as one of the leading sets at the Bar in the 2023 edition of The Legal 500.

We are thrilled to be recognised again as a Top Tier set for Local Government, Social Housing and Licensing. We also come highly recommended as a Leading set for Planning, Environment, and Administrative and Public Law.

This impressive achievement is testament to Chambers’ depth and breadth of outstanding work at every level. A total of 44 of our members have been ranked across 14 different practice areas, with a total of 75 individual rankings.

We congratulate all of our barristers who remain ranked, many of whom have been promoted or have been ranked for the first time. We are particularly proud of the five members who have been ranked in new categories, and five members who have been promoted in at least one of their areas of practice.

We would like to thank our clients and referees for their continued support and feedback. A selection of their comments can be found below.

“Cornerstone Barristers is the complete package. Clerks who understand their client’s needs and will move everything to make sure they are met. Barristers who are outstanding in their field. Highly knowledgeable, quick to grasp the facts and the ability to see solutions where they haven’t been identified before – A professional service from start to finish with competitive fees that have kept us coming back for more time and time again. I would have no hesitation in recommending Cornerstone to represent your client (unless they are against us, of course!)”

“I regularly use Cornerstone. They are my go to chambers and usually my first choice. This is not just because of the excellent selection of barristers available, but also because of the incredible service that I receive from the clerks there. The clerks are knowledgeable, friendly and professional, and go out of their way to assist in any way they can. Any barrister recommendation for cases are spot on and they are always contactable, which to me is very helpful. Head clerk Elliot and his team leaders have in my view, improved the service of chambers even during the pandemic”

“Cornerstone Barristers are our Chambers of choice. We have always had a first-class service from its members and we have never had to look elsewhere because of an inability to assist us. The Clerks are all extremely helpful and on occasions have gone above and beyond the call of duty to assist us. I would thoroughly recommend them.”
