Public & Administrative Law

We have considerable experience of advising both public bodies and those affected by the actions of public authorities on the duties and obligations which arise through public and administrative law.

We have successfully challenged a wide variety of regulators and regulatory decisions on behalf of clients. Where possible, we help clients reach an amicable resolution, sometimes as a result of efforts to educate regulators about the correct interpretation of the legal framework and its application to in novel fields.

We have also advised numerous organisations both within the life science sector and beyond about how best to interact with public bodies, particularly regulators. One needs to understand how public policy affects your research and business, and when disputes arise, you need expert advice on the remit and powers of regulators and other public bodies - together with advice on the implications any challenge may have for the future.
