Brick Court Chambers has considerable experience of advising and acting in relation to transport-related public law and regulatory disputes, as well as in relation to fiscal, environmental and competition law measures affecting parties in these industries. Where aviation and maritime transport are concerned, these cases often involve an understanding of international conventions and treaty law.
Members of Chambers have appeared before regulators and in disputes in the High Court, the Court of Appeal, the Supreme Court (and its predecessor the House of Lords) and the ECJ. They are adept at understanding the legal frameworks which underpin European and domestic regulation in this area and in understanding the legal, technical and practical issues. They are experienced in working with teams of commercial clients, economists and other experts.
