Our public law and regulatory litigation team offers expert, cost effective legal advice tailored to meet the specific requirements of our clients. We have a long history of working in this field. We draw on this experience, combining our specialist legal knowledge to offer general advice and guidance, resolve disputes and, where legal action is necessary or unavoidable, take appropriate, robust action.

In the context of regulatory litigation we act for a number of high profile regulators including the Solicitors Regulation Authority and the Architects Registration Board. We are always aware that individual cases have wider implications and must be considered within a more general context. With this in mind we assess the options and provide focused, pragmatic advice. We have a strong track record of delivering the results that our clients need.

In the context of judicial review applications we have acted in a wide range of cases for both defendants and claimants. We know that dealing with challenges against decisions, whether bringing or defending the challenge, can be complex and that the results can have wide ranging implications. We offer clear prudent advice in order to ensure a timely, positive outcome whether through the courts or by settlement. We have experience of a broad range of public law matters across a number of sectors, including professional regulators, planning and licensing.

The Legal 500 (2022) noted our practice is "unique in its diverse range of law areas covered and more so it’s ability to quickly and efficiently draft a case and legal standing."

Our team members are accessible and work collaboratively with clients to ensure the best possible results.

A number of the firm's lawyers have contributed to The Law of Legal Services by John Gould, published by Jordan.
