The ‘pre-eminent set for agricultural work’, members of Falcon Chambers possess considerable experience in tenancies, development issues, the Agricultural Holdings 1986 Act, and proprietary estoppel in the context of farming families. Emily Windsor recently acted in Trustees of the Alexander Devine Children's Cancer Charity Trust v. Millgate, a leading piece of litigation concerning restrictive covenants which prevented the development of a rural site. In another set highlight, Caroline Shea QC appeared in the Court of Appeal in Moore v Moore which concerned the satisfaction of equity in a farm-related estoppel dispute.

Agricultural expertise for members of Francis Taylor Building encompasses town and village greens, right of way, the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, and the Highways Act 1980. The set provides an ‘excellent service’ and is ‘always able to provide a suitably qualified and experienced barrister when required’, according to clients. In one instruction of note, Ned Westaway is currently acting in R (Lancashire CC) v SSEFRA, a Court of Appeal case concerning a challenge to the registration of a school field as a town or village green.

New Square Chambers is hailed by clients as being ‘incredibly strong’ in agricultural matters and is particularly reputed for disputes concerning public access to land, specifically in relation to town and village green cases, as well as those involving highways law. In one representative instruction, George Laurence QC is currently acting in Roxlena Ltd v Cumbria County Council in which he seeks to restrain the defendant from making a modification order under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981 to the effect of establishing 44 new footpaths across his client’s land.
