Judicial Review

The scope of judicial review, which is a challenge in court to the legality of a public body's actions, grows ever wider. With over 10,000 new challenges a year it's more important than ever you know how to exercise your public powers safely, and to choose a legal team with a high success rate of defending claims should a judicial review be unavoidable.

What we do

When that happens, our Public Law team, based in offices in London, Bristol and Leeds, is uniquely positioned to handle every aspect of the case. Our experience in acting for public bodies in high profile cases, across a wide range of sectors gives us an unrivalled ability to get to grips with cases quickly, practically, and cost effectively.

We understand that it's not just about the case, so we handle the wider consequences too. We don't just defend you. We aim to vindicate your reputation.

What we are known for

We believe prevention is better than cure. So we work closely with clients, as a partner early in their policy and decision making process, to identify any risks and avoid any legal challenges before they happen.

But we also understand that judicial review cannot always be prevented. Individuals will not always accept decisions or will decide to test a point of principle in court.

We know what works. Our high success rate in defending judicial review claims is evidence of this. We'll provide swift, unequivocal advice about your prospects of success and any risks associated with the review. And if the review proceeds, you can rest assured we will defend you expertly and tenaciously.
