Departments of central government and local authorities regularly face legal challenges in the courts by way of judicial review, by individuals, pressure groups, professional associations and companies. Our barristers regularly represent and advise both claimants and defendants in these types of claims.
Government departments also often face challenges to their policies, guidance and regulations, and local authorities may face challenges concerning the scope of their duties and powers, community care decisions, education, housing, local byelaws and the vires of their transactions. Such challenges may additionally involve issues of EU or human rights law, which our barristers are well versed in.
