Public law, policy, and public affairs are our niche practice areas, where we assist our clients by protecting and promoting their interests at the intersection of public and private sectors.
Our public law and policy lawyers focus on client-specific strategies to deliver results. Our primary clients are some of the heavily regulated industries, including aviation, energy, financial services, healthcare and life sciences, telecoms, tobacco and water; whom we have represented in some of the most high-profile and complex administrative and public law cases before diverse courts and tribunals.
Our Public Law and Policy Advocates chart the following path to secure the rights and interests of our clients:
understanding legal and commercial complexities and political sensitivities that involved in similar cases;
application of deep knowledge of human rights, freedom of information law, and public affairs to devise a potent strategy that will benefit the client;
application of extensive experience to provide integrated, strategic assistance deploying full range of arguments and approaches in a way that is sensitive to our client’s objectives and the political and commercial risks involved;
drawing experience from contentious and non-contentious administrative and public law issues to present workable solutions to most complex problems.
A major chunk of our public law and policy practice involves the advisory role that our lawyers are often called into the picture. Our clientele includes:
claimants, defendants and interested parties in commercial judicial reviews, statutory appeals and other regulatory and public law challenges;
businesses and trade associations to engage effectively with government departments, regulators and other public bodies on regulatory and policy issues, including legal arguments, litigation strategies, responding to white papers, consultation documents and impact assessments;
public bodies to exercise their public law functions, including their powers and duties, governance, consultation processes, regulatory and policy design, parliamentary processes, and on freedom of information law.
