Councils and Public bodies are trusted to make important decisions every day and those decisions can have severe consequences on people’s lives. Whilst these public bodies are entrusted with significant statutory powers over very important areas (e.g. housing, education, health, transport), their decisions must comply with the law and should not be unreasonable.
We regularly act on behalf of public bodies to help them understand the scope of their powers and to structure their decisions so as to avoid judicial review claims. We have considerable experience advising on the Welsh language standards and have acted in appeals in the Welsh Language Tribunal.
We regularly help those who have been adversely affected by a public body acting beyond the scope of its power. Our specialist solicitors can help individuals, groups, charities and companies overturn decisions where a public body has failed to follow the correct procedure or comply with its legal obligations.
Judicial review claims are complex and have strict time limits which you must comply with, so it is essential to take specialist legal advice as soon as possible to give your claim the best chance of success. We have strong connections with very experienced barristers who specialise in such claims, this will give you the comfort of knowing that our firm will be able to assemble a specialist team very quickly and urgently deal with your case.
If you have been affected by a Council or public body decision or believe that a statutory decision-making process was not correctly followed, please do not hesitate to contact a member of our team today for a free, no-obligation consultation and discuss whether we can be of assistance.
We are proud to offer bilingual advice and our solicitors are confident to conduct litigation through the medium of Welsh. Find out more.
