Lynn Shellfish Ltd and Others v Loose and Another: appeal to the Supreme Court

30th April 2015

Zia Bhaloo QC and Tim Calland have been instructed to represent the owner of a private shellfish fishery in this landmark appeal to the Supreme Court. The case is a commercial dispute between fishermen over the extent of the private fishery and the effect of changes to the shoreline over time. It raises many difficult property law issues concerning property rights over moveable areas of land, the law of prescription and the doctrine of accretion.


Previously Jennifer Meech appeared at first instance [2013] EWHC 901 (Ch). She and Tim Calland successfully resisted an appeal to the Court of Appeal [2014] EWCA Civ 846.
