Richard FowlerMaitland ChambersHe has the ability to pull the strands of a case together.

Clients of Maitland Chambers note its ‘very good reputation’ and praise it as ‘among the stronger property sets’. The set excels on a number of fronts including commercial property, development of land and insolvency-related disputes, possession hearings, as well as landlord and tenant litigation. A standout instruction from the recent workload saw John McGhee QC appear in Generator Development v Lidl, a Court of Appeal matter in which it was argued that, owing to a joint venture, a property company should own an equitable interest in land acquired for development by the well-known supermarket. In another highlight, Richard Fowler was engaged for Holyoake v Candy and others, a high-value Chancery Division claim in which the claimants sought damages for fraud and intimidation as a result of a failed luxury property development in London.
