Public Law and Judicial Review

We are a tier 1-ranked public law and judicial review team in the UK with a network of expertise across our European offices. We provide pragmatic, risk-based advice in both contentious and non-contentious contexts across a range of sectors. Clients come to us for our specialist experience acting for claimants, defendants, interested parties and interveners in judicial review cases. The team is led by recognised senior practitioners in this field.

Our recent notable cases include acting for:

  • A number of Train Operating Companies defending a judicial review in relation to ticket office closure consultations. In combination with similar consultations run by other companies, the consultation was the most responded to in UK history.
  • The UK Covid-19 Public Inquiry on the high-profile judicial review brought by the Cabinet Office in respect of access to WhatsApp material sought by the Inquiry.
  • Jersey Hemp in an ongoing judicial review against the Secretary of State for the Home Office in what will be a landmark CBD ruling.
  • A group of freehold property-owning companies in relation to the UK government's leasehold reform agenda, successfully challenging a consultation run by the Department for Levelling-Up, Housing and Communities.
  • WildFish Conservation in a high-profile environmental judicial review against the Storm Overflow Discharge Reduction Plan, published by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

We work together across Fieldfisher's key industry sectors and our international offices to deliver a comprehensive service for clients. Our Public and Regulatory lawyers are deeply immersed in their respective sectors, including the Healthcare and Technology sectors.
