Welcome to Merrett & Co

There is always a conflict between the desire to develop and the desire to protect land from development, planning is highly political and specialist planning solicitors can ensure that you win the battle of these two competing interests.

Merrett and Co Solicitors are a boutique planning and environmental law firm established for 22 years, our solicitors have over 30 years of experience, both in Local Government and private practice, having worked with authorities, both in-house and for developers and consequently have strong working relationships with planning authorities throughout the country. We provide specialist advice and work alongside your existing property team; we offer city quality advice without delegation overheads and bureaucracy.

Our solicitors are able to problem solve and negotiate and achieve the co-operation of the local planning authority to achieve a successful outcome for your development project.

Drawing on the experience of over 30,000 planning projects over 32 years Merrett and Co will be able to help you argue your case, they can provide creative and strategic advice.

In this arena, specialist advice is an essential, not a luxury. Planning Lawyers have an important role to help clients through the maze of ever more complex legislation, the new planning regimes are increasingly legalistic and there are more opportunities to challenge local authority decisions.
