London Solicitors Challenging the State
Decisions taken by the government and public bodies affect all of us — but institutions must exercise their decision-making powers in accordance with the principles of public law. Luqmani Thompson & Partners is a high profile north London firm of solicitors which offers specialist public law advice to clients who wish to challenge government decisions. We have particular experience in assisting clients who have been adversely affected by the action or inaction of a public body where there is no obvious route of appeal.
North London Lawyers Challenging Administrative Decisions
Our experience in public law is extensive. We provide expert advice to businesses and other organisations when their commercial interests have been prejudiced by government intervention. We also help individuals who have been deprived of their liberty or whose livelihoods have been jeopardised by the decision of a public body. Examples of the types of decisions we regularly challenge include:
- Criminal Record Bureau decisions
- Local authority decisions to place children on the at risk register
- Local authority decisions on age assessments
- Decisions that result in discrimination
- Detention decisions
We adopt a strategic and responsive approach to the public law cases we handle, establishing at an early stage that the grounds for challenging the decision are clear and robust. Normally this will involve identifying the error in the decision or demonstrating its unfairness.
If you believe a decision made by a public body or government department is wrong or has resulted in unfairness, you can contact our specialist team on 020 8365 7800 or online to arrange an appointment. We frequently challenge decisions successfully and recover financial compensation for clients who have been adversely affected by the acts of public institutions.
