Tim Buley

Barrister, Landmark Chambers

Chambers 100 UK Bar (December 2013) identifies Tim as one of the leading junior barristers in the UK across all practice areas:

A specialist in public law, human rights, EU and planning and environmental law …”Able to immediately grasp the fundamentals of very complex issues and advise clearly on the key points and merits,” he “always looks for the creative angle to litigation and provides an excellent overview of the legal framework.”

The Legal 500 2013 recommends Tim in Administrative and Public Law, Civil Liberties and Human Rights, and Immigration (“collaborative and hard-working”, “standout junior”, “a very bright and creative individual”). He has been identified as a leading planning junior in Planning Magazine, and (in 2009) as one of the Attorney-General’s Pro Bono Heroes for “outstanding commitment to pro bono work”. He is a member of the Attorney-General’s A-panel of Junior Counsel to the Crown, and the Welsh Government and Equality and Human Rights Commission panels of counsel.

Tim’s clients include a wide range of commercial organisations, individuals, NGO’s and pressure groups (including Reprieve, Public Law Project, CPAG, Mind, JCWI, Bail for Immigration Detainees, Medical Justice and the Environmental Law Foundation), most central government departments, the Welsh Government, and a wide range of other public bodies (including local authorities, the Environment Agency, the Intellectual Property Office, the Land Registry, the Parole Board, the Marine Fisheries Agency, the Gangmaster’s Licensing Association, HMRC, and various NHS bodies). Tim appears as sole and leading counsel, including regular appearances against silks, at all levels.
