Regarded as a ‘strong public law set‘ with ‘an impressive array of juniors and silks‘, Landmark Chambers boasts a broad bench of barristers that enables it to act on both the claimant and respondent sides of proceedings. Tim Buley KC and joint head of the public law group Samantha Broadfoot KC recently appeared opposite each other in AK & Ors, R (on the application of) v The Entry Clearance Office (Islamabad) & Anor, contesting whether the immigration rules’ definition of de facto adoption gave rise to unlawful discrimination or was irrational. Notable juniors include Julia Smyth and Hafsah Masood, as well as ‘fearless advocate‘, Miranda Butler, who arrived from Garden Court Chambers in January 2022.
