Our expertise in administrative and public law means we are the team of choice for public bodies and major statutory regulators across both industry and professional sectors. We are particularly known for our work with in-house legal teams in the financial, legal, healthcare and energy sectors.
Statutory regulators and public bodies
Statutory regulators and public bodies come to us for help in a wide range of circumstances, including:
- The introduction, planning and implementation of new schemes, based on new statutory powers
- Assessing the suitability of existing powers in dynamic sectors
- Refreshing policies and procedures so that they continue to be fit for purpose
- Ensuring compliance with consultation obligations
- Observance of the public sector equality duty and human rights legislation
- Internal investigations and inquiries
Protecting statutory regulators and public bodies’ interests
Our goal is to make sure the impact of your activities is always targeted and without unintended consequences. It is therefore extremely important to us to make sure we understand your organisational priorities as well as the interests of your major stakeholders.
We work with public bodies at the early stages of a project or new scheme, as well as providing urgent advice when an unexpected situation arises. Here, the seniority of our team enables us to bring mature and measured judgement. At all times, we strive to work with you to provide clear, timely and commercial advice, which can be easily communicated to all members of your team.
With this focus and our understanding of the wider issues at stake, we can help to ensure you are confidently delivering your key objectives in a targeted, cost effective way and, importantly, within the framework of your statutory duties and responsibilities.
