Trinity Silk Heads to the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court has granted Mr and Mrs Ridley permission to appeal against the decision of the President of the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber), Mr Justice Edwin Johnson, in the case of Brown v Ridley and another [2024] UKUT 14.

Head of Trinity’s Business and Property team, Simon Goldberg K.C. represented Mr and Mrs Ridley in the Upper Tribunal and will lead their legal team in the Supreme Court. On the appeal, the Supreme Court will consider one of the last unresolved issues of statutory construction arising from the “new” adverse possession regime under Schedule 6 to the Land Registration Act 2002, namely the period over which an applicant for adverse possession must reasonably believe that the application land belongs to them, for the purposes of paragraph 5(4)(c).

Simon is leading Sam Healy of Dere Street Chambers instructed by Matthew Sigsworth at Ward Hadaway.
