Chambers of David Holland KC and Reuben Taylor KC
Landmark Chambers


Thomas Jefferies is an experienced specialist in property litigation. In his early years he worked in the litigation department of Freshfields, where the bulk of his work was planning and commercial landlord and tenant. He gained invaluable experience of the needs of solicitors and clients, which helped him develop a user friendly style when he began practice at the bar. He relishes court hearings, and has appeared at all levels from the LVT to the House of Lords, frequently against silks.


His practice includes all areas of property litigation, including leasehold enfranchisement, landlord and tenant, mortgages, general property litigation, including related professional negligence.


In his early years of practice he was involved in planning inquiries and appeals, and he now enjoys bringing his experience to bear in litigation raising planning and highways issues, such as enforcing planning obligations and disputes over obligations to use reasonable endeavours to obtain planning permission.


He is a CEDR accredited mediator, and takes great satisfaction helping parties reach a settlement out of court in this growing part of his practice.


Called 1981; CEDR accredited mediator.


Property Bar Association (founder committee member).


Thomas graduated in English from Durham University. He then studied law at the City University, obtaining the Diploma in Law. He was awarded a Harmsworth Scholarship by Middle Temple
