Our Administrative Law team is experienced in providing the highest quality public law advice informed by a detailed knowledge and understanding of government and government processes. We use our legal knowledge of government to advise both public and private sector clients on a wide range of matters arising from the development, passage, content, interpretation and application of laws and regulations. In particular, members of the team advise on the full range of dispute resolution and investigative processes, including judicial review, public inquiries, statutory appeals and tribunal processes, at the national and international levels.
Public and administrative law touches all business activities which are in any way subject to statutory control or regulation. It not only affects businesses which deal directly with government by engaging in major projects, but also any business whose scope may be limited or rendered less competitive as a result of new legislation or direct or indirect governmental intervention. This can cover such areas as freedom of information, planning and environment law, taxation, competition, procurement, health and safety, telecommunications, advertising, human rights, professional discipline issues and any other area where businesses come into direct contact with government.
