Falcon Chambers specialises in property litigation and associated areas and is hailed as the ‘pre-eminent set’ at the property Bar. Among its areas of expertise are enfranchisement, compulsory purchases, mineral rights, telecoms matters, and Land Registry issues. In a recent highlight, Guy Fetherstonhaugh QC acted in S. Frances Ltd v Cavendish, a Supreme Court case which reversed decades of Court of Appeal precedent concerning the extent to which a landlord’s intention to redevelop a property must be unconditional when opposing the grant of a new business tenancy. Elsewhere, Stephen Jourdan QC appeared in the Privy Council on appeal from the Court of Appeal of The Bahamas in Bannerman Town etc. Association v Eleuthera Properties. The matter concerned a complex title dispute of 2,000 acres of land in The Bahamas. The arrival of Camilla Chorfi from Selborne Chambers bolstered the set’s landlord and tenant offering.
