Public Law

Atlantic Chambers offers significant strength in Judicial Review as part of its comprehensive public law capability.

The Public Law Group provides the special expertise required for Judicial Review cases and the high standards of service and experience needed by Solicitors acting both for claimants and on behalf of public bodies such as local authorities, police authorities and NHS Trusts.

Judicial Review
In 2009 the Administrative Court for the first time began to operate outside London and begin issuing and hearing judicial review applications in the North West and Wales.

As one of the North West's largest sets of barristers - with considerable experience of Judicial Review cases in London - Atlantic Chambers played a leading part in the campaign to bring this Court nearer home and to improve access to this important source of legal remedy.  The previous requirement for cases to be heard in London often provided a serious barrier in terms of cost and disruption especially with regard to the individuals bringing cases.

Expert Practitioners
In 2008 Atlantic Chambers began preparing for the newly regionalised Administrative Court by setting up a new Public Law Group to build on the expertise of those members with experience of Judicial Review work in London alongside the experience of a wider range of members with a considerable track-record of working regionally on major cases for Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, Police Authorities and Prison Authorities.

Accessible Expertise
With a wide range of legal expertise under one roof and considerable experience in areas of law which cut across traditional legal specialisms - such as Proceeds of Crime - Atlantic Chambers believes it offers an ideal resource for clients faced with complex problems.

 

Legal 500 2013 quotes:
