Notable practitioners

Claire Dutch has a strong track record of advising on energy, waste and large-scale regeneration projects throughout the UK. She is experienced as a contributor to matters of planning policy such as the Community Infrastructure Levy. She also handles contentious matters such as judicial reviews and appeals.
"She can really break down very complicated planning conundrums and relay it back to me in layman's terms." "Claire's in-depth knowledge and experience, combined with her amenable style, make working with the Ashurst team a highly rewarding experience."

Trevor Goode's expertise spans from statutory challenges and the formation of new policy to transport infrastructure projects and affordable housing requirements. He has particularly extensive experience with regard to town centre regenerations and similar projects around London, and is called upon by private and public sector clients.
"Trevor is one of my favourite lawyers to work with. A strong negotiator but with a good sense of humour." "A serious, heavyweight lawyer that you'd go to with a complicated issue."
