Uber secures right to continue operating in London


The Westminster Magistrates’ Court yesterday upheld Uber London Limited’s (Uber’s) heavily publicised licensing appeal, finding that, as at the date of the hearing, Uber was “fit and proper” despite historical failings and, therefore, entitled to be granted a licence to operate in London.

The Court granted a licence of 18 months, subject to conditions, and directed Uber to pay TfL’s costs of the appeal.

The decision has been widely reported, including in The Times and The Lawyer

Marie Demetriou QC and Tim Johnston acted for TfL.

James McClelland acted for Uber, instructed by Hogan Lovells.
