Louise Sivey, Senior Associate, Regulatory, Fieldfisher

I am a Senior Associate in the Regulatory team, specialising in advising public bodies, companies and other organisations on regulatory and public law issues, judicial review and investigations.

I have experience working for regulators and regulated entities across a range of sectors and industries including sport, groceries retail, property, transport, education and telecoms. I have expertise in advising clients on high profile regulatory investigations.

My work for public bodies and regulators includes advising on decision-making processes and policy formulation to seek to safeguard clients against legal challenge including judicial review. I also carry out reviews and audits for clients to identify risks associated with their regulatory systems and processes and make practical recommendations to mitigate risks of legal challenge.

I also have experience advising companies on bringing claims for judicial review and have acted for a company in litigation challenging the outcome of a public sector procurement.

I advise members' organisations, trade bodies and clubs on governance arrangements. This includes expertise in drafting constitutional frameworks, rules, policies and guidance documents including re-drafting the Charter, Bye-Laws and Regulations of a Royal Charter body.

I have provided training to clients on issues including the public law principles of decision-making, legal privilege, the public procurement rules and regulatory investigations.

Having previously worked in public relations and policy roles prior to my legal training, I take a strategic and practical approach to clients' needs. Legal 500 describes me as being 'attentive and provides solid advice and guidance'.

I obtained a first class degree in History and Politics before completing a law degree and the Legal Practice Course.
