Highly-rated planning silk Neil King QC has quit 2 Mitre Court Buildings, taking along rising star Rupert Warren to rival set Landmark Chambers.
The departure of King follows a succession of retirements at the top end of the set, which leaves 2 Mitre Court with just two full-time senior silks – Guy Roots QC, the chairman of the Planning and Environment Bar Association, and Matthew Horton QC.
Michael Humphries QC, who took silk this year, is also a tenant, as is Stephen Sau-vain QC, who divides his practice between Manchester’s Kings Chambers and London.
The set has lost six senior silks to retirement since 2001: former head Michael Fitzgerald QC, David Witticombe QC, Lord Silsoe QC, Gerald Moriarty QC, Arthur Anderson QC and John Taylor QC.
