Recognised by Chambers and Partners as Top Ranking Firm for Real Estate and Planning

Chambers and Partners have once again recognised DJB as a top tier firm, describing the firm as “highly regarded specialists” in Planning, Real Estate and Property Litigation, with “renowned expertise acting for public sector clients.”

DJB is currently undergoing rapid expansion into London and the North West, and is recognised as the sole top ranking firm in Planning and Real Estate in Somerset.

The firm’s experienced planning team are quoted as being “efficient and very knowledgeable – they know their stuff and get the job done quickly within time limits.” Sources have described the team as “always approachable and prepared to listen.”

Our competitive rates and high quality legal services are recognised, with clients describing the firm as offering “excellent value for money.” Our team of dedicated Client Care Managers have been acclaimed for providing “excellent customer service”, with clients feeling protected to “the greatest possible extent”.

A number of the DJB’s lawyers are recognised as notable practitioners, including founding partner, Stuart Bould, who possesses the “tenacity to get to the root of everything.” Litigation specialist, Ted Dancey, is also noted, in addition to Group Director, Tony Fitzmaurice, who is listed as a Senior Statesman in the Manchester Real Estate category.

The firm’s recognition in Chambers and Partners comes shortly after further accreditation in the Legal 500 directory, where DJB was recognised in the London tables as a leading firm in the three key real estate practice areas of Commercial Property, Planning and Property Litigation.
