Planning silk Tim Corner QC has become the latest barrister to quit London set 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square after securing membership at Landmark Chambers.
It brings the number of exits from 4-5 Gray’s Inn to seven, including two silks, in the past week. As revealed by The Lawyer, Landmark took Paul Brown QC and Lisa Busch while 11KBW hired barristers Charles Bourne and Andrew Sharland, and Matrix Chambers boosted its ranks with the addition of public law barristers Sarah Hannett and Chris Buttler (31 October 2012).
Corner was called to the bar in 1981, took silk in 2002 and was a longstanding member of 4-5 Gray’s Inn. His recent public inquiry work has seen him represent Tesco on its bid for a major development in the Olympic Stadium area while other clients include Barratt Homes, UK Coal and Sainsbury’s.
Landmark chambers director Holly Gavaghan, who joined the set in June this year (27 June 2012), said the established reputations and practices of the new additions would “strengthen and complement our planning and public law teams”.
