"The ‘outstanding’ Falcon Chambers is ‘the go to set for contentious property matters’, and ‘the strength in depth means you can always be certain you are getting the highest quality’. ‘From QC level to receptionist, individuals in chambers are everything you want from a set: professional, knowledgeable, and personable’." Legal 500, 2016

"Falcon Chambers ‘remains the obvious choice for any matter involving the law relating to land, where barristers provide a wealth of experience across a myriad of issues’. Several members appeared in the Supreme Court case of Marks & Spencer v BNP Paribas Securities Services Trust Co. (Jersey)." Legal 500, 2016

"Falcon Chambers is a set that is 'at the top of the game for property law.' As a completely dedicated real estate set, it is noted for the exceptional depth and breadth of its expertise, and is further applauded for the technical acumen and superior advocacy skills of its members. This year, the set has inaugurated a new arbitration service that provides a pool of talented arbitrators from the set's deep bench of silks.” Chambers UK Guide, 2016

"This set continues to be regarded as a first point of reference for land and property matters within the agricultural sector. Its members boast significant expertise in agricultural landlord and tenancy cases, rent reviews and ownership disputes. They are further sought after for town and village green application cases and agricultural land diversification matters. 'The clerks are very efficient and get back to you quickly about things'." Chambers UK Guide, 2015

"This set continues to stand well above any other in the agricultural sphere due, in part, to the sheer number of members it can devote to the area. Its members have a wide range of specialist knowledge across niche areas of agricultural law and are “the people you go to for top rate technical expertise” and “the mustard on leading edge cases”. Chambers UK Guide, 2017

Chambers UK Guide, 2017

"Sources praise it, saying: 'It absolutely leads the market in terms of the breadth of experience that it has. If it’s something niche and tricky, it seems that Falcon always has someone there that has the relevant expertise to tick the box that you need. To have someone on your side with their barristers’ level of expertise is priceless'." Chambers UK Guide, 2017
