Public Law

Public Law

Our expertise in public law is wide-ranging and highly regarded. We have been described by Chambers & Partners as “outstanding”. Public law challenges have been one of the foundations of our practice since our establishment in 2000. Our team has an exceptional reputation in all areas of public law and our members are regularly instructed in high profile and complex judicial reviews and public law considerations in other cases.

We draw upon expertise in several different areas, including human rights, immigration, commercial law, EU law, criminal law and environmental law. This means we can provide a team of experts for each case and cover a full range of public law matters. In 2015 we were named Administrative & Public Law Team of the year by Chambers & Partners.

We are committed to publicly funded work, as well as privately funded and public interest litigation, as set out in our core values.

Commercial public law expertise

We have a strong reputation in commercial public law. Specialist expertise comes from our EU and competition team, who can advise and act for clients in cases related to commercial regulation, public procurement and judicial review on behalf of companies. We also have experience in a number of related EU law areas, including the free movement regimes, employment and data protection.
