From landmark early judicial review cases such as Datafin, Brick Court Chambers has been at the forefront of Public Law for more than 20 years. In recent years members of Chambers have successfully assisted in some of the most significant Public and Administrative Law cases and public inquiries of our time, including those raising major political or constitutional issues.
The nature of this area of practice has become more complex. Judicial review is now but one (though a very important) aspect of Public and Administrative Law. Public Law issues, including those involving statutory interpretation and the powers of regulatory bodies, now arise in almost all courts and tribunals including (increasingly) the Competition Appeal Tribunal and the European Courts as well as in the national courts.
Recognising these issues and how (and where) best to litigate them is something which members of Chambers with an unrivalled depth of expertise in so many different fields reflective of Public Law are pre-eminently equipped to do.
Listed below are some of the principal areas of Public Law in which members of Chambers accept instructions. Please click through for further details of our expertise and experience in these areas.
