Public & Regulatory

We get how government works.

We act for public bodies and regulators. But we also act for the charities, businesses, campaigning groups and individuals affected by their regimes.

We bring a high level of legal acumen, teamed with a practical understanding of how to best negotiate the issues you are facing. We know that you need strategic advice from a team that knows your world.

Many of our team worked for government departments or in-house for public bodies before joining us. So, we understand the statutory and policy framework and real-world challenges you’re dealing with.

How we help

As we act for regulators and regulated bodies, we see issues from every side and hold public authorities to account whenever we need to.

We’re specialists in judicial reviews. If you’re facing a challenge, we can move quickly – especially in the earliest stages, where we can readily mount claims without involving counsel.

We’ll also advise on:

  • Procedural fairness and human rights issues
  • Sound decision making
  • Regulatory, legislative and policy drafting; including codes of conduct and dispute processes
  • Implementing statutory and regulatory requirements into your processes and procedures
  • Tribunal claims, statutory appeals and inquiries
  • Public sector audit law.
