Public Law Solicitors & Judicial Review
Public bodies are trusted to make decisions that can have serious impact on our lives and they must act within the law. Where a public body has acted unlawfully our specialist public law solicitors are on hand to provide advice and representation to ensure the wrong action is put right and individual is compensated.
Public law is the system by which courts can review and control the administrative functions of the state. Public law is there to ensure that all decisions taken by a government body are taken lawfully and that fair procedures are followed.
All public bodies must act fairly when dealing with matters involving your access, legal rights and entitlement to public services, as well as any problems you may encounter with these services. With this, all public bodies need to act in accordance with your human rights and abide by public law when making decisions. Failures to act in such a way can be challenged by way of complaints procedures or judicial review proceedings by public law solicitors.
The most common remedy in a Public law matter is a judicial review, although in some cases there may be scope to pursue issues through declarations in claims for damages, inquest verdicts, Ombudsman and complaint schemes, and public enquiries.

- Children & Family Court Advisory Support Service
- Criminal Cases Review Commission
- HM Prison Service
