Hailed as ‘the leading set for agricultural litigation’, Falcon Chambers runs a notably broad caseload which includes land ownership, partnership disputes, proprietary estoppel, boundary issues and restrictive covenants. Caroline Shea QC and Catherine Taskis were recently involved in the Court of Appeal case of Kingsley v Kingsley; a farming partnership dispute which arose following the death of one partner and gained significance due to its clarification of the compatibility between TOLATA and Article 1 of the Human Rights Convention. Elsewhere, Stephen Jourdan QC successfully acted for the defendants in the High Court case of Windsor-Clive v Rees. The matter arose in connection with a proposed development and subsequent injunction sought by neighbouring farm owners. Members are also well-versed when it comes to development, shooting, hunting, mine and mineral rights.
