Judicial Review

Judicial Review

We advise on all aspects of public and administrative law, including judicial review.

Judicial Review is the process used for challenging the lawfulness of decisions or actions taken by public bodies which include local authorities, courts and tribunals, health service providers and central government departments and agencies. The process cannot be used to reconsider the merits of any decision.

The nature of judicial review means that a claim can arise from many sectors and often emerge out of ongoing projects on which the firm is advising the client. Our litigation specialists support teams across the firm in bringing, defending or intervening in judicial reviews and other administrative and public law matters.

We advise individuals and organisations on how to challenge or oppose challenges to decisions and the extent of powers of regulators, local government and governmental bodies.

We work cross departmentally, combining our litigation and public law expertise with the relevant practice area to ensure that we deliver focussed and practical advice.

The firm’s experience of judicial review includes high profile matters that have reached the appellate courts on behalf of both claimants and defendants.
