No business operates free from the actions of government departments, agencies, and regulators. When their actions affect your business, you need to be able to hold them to account.
New legislation, a policy decision, a regulatory outcome. When the issue is business critical, you want a team that understands how to achieve the commercial result you need. A team that is adept at bringing legally complex challenges in technically difficult areas. And making them simple enough to succeed. A team that understands your commercial objectives and the pressures public bodies face. A team that knows litigation is never an end in itself and delivers a fully rounded strategy.
And if you are a public body, you want that same team fighting your corner — helping you to make legally robust decisions that are attuned to the political and policy challenges you face.
Our administrative and public law team has substantial experience acting in the most high-profile and complex administrative and public law cases before domestic and international courts and tribunals. We understand the legal and commercial complexities and political sensitivities that such cases involve.
The breadth and depth of regulatory knowledge of our global practice is peerless. We combine our administrative and public law experience with that of government relations and policy advocacy, to give our clients integrated, strategic assistance. We use the full range of arguments and approaches in a way that is sensitive to your objectives and the political and commercial risks involved.
