Tanfield Chambers is delighted to announce its nomination for Real Estate, Environment & Planning Chambers of the Year at the 2015 Legal 500 UK Awards. Head of Chambers, Philip Rainey QC is a nominee for the prestigious Barrister of the Year award.

The Legal 500 UK Awards recognises and rewards the best teams and individuals at law firms, barristers’ chambers and in-house groups over the past 12 months.  There are no submissions, demands for thousands of pounds to buy tables, no lengthy speeches - the awards are handed to the elite legal practitioners, based on the most comprehensive research into the UK legal market.  Over 50,000 interviews have been conducted to ascertain the winners, who are invited to an exclusive dinner in London to celebrate with their peers. 

Head of Chambers, Philip Rainey QC, said:

“It’s a huge honour, both personally and for the set, to be recognised in this way.  The fact that these awards are peer judged makes this double nomination even more gratifying.  At Tanfield Chambers we work hard to put client relationships at the heart of any advice we give. The days of being only a legal expert have long gone – clients, quite rightly, expect more and we are enormously pleased that our work has been recognised in this way.”

The results will be announced on Wednesday 30th September 2015.
