Head of the Public Law Team: Rhodri Williams QC
Whether it is a matter of advising public bodies on the legality of decisions they want to take or advising people affected by those decisions on challenging them, our Public law team can help.
Our Public law team offers members at all levels of seniority and with a breadth of experience, from tribunals up to and including the Supreme Court, the CJEU and the Privy Council.

Public law issues can arise in just about any area of law. Our Public Law Team’s broad experience means that we can anticipate when this is likely and are able to advise appropriately.
