The work we do:
COVID-19 is having a profound effect on the public sector and raises numerous legal issues. Please see our dedicated COVID-19 hub for our barristers’ latest commentary and articles. For further information on COVID-19 or the public sector, please contact our clerks on 0207 269 0300.
We have a long and established reputation in public law, acting for both claimants and defendants in key human rights and judicial review cases, and we appear for claimants and defendants in a diverse range of claims brought against public sector bodies.
We are well represented on the Attorney General’s panels of Treasury Counsel and a number of our members act as Special Advocates. We have appeared in some of the most significant and high-profile litigation brought against the government.

Members of chambers also act for individual claimants and human rights organisations.
This area can encompass a broad spectrum of the law, and it’s vital to instruct the right barristers. Our work covers public law and human rights challenges in fields such as:
