Public Law

Experience in a wide range of Public Law proceedings, ranging from Inquests to Regulatory Proceedings and Judicial Reviews.

Fraser Chambers has experience across the full range of public law proceedings, ranging from inquests to Judicial Review, professional regulatory proceedings and contempt of court proceedings. Clear advice can be provided as to what strategy should be adopted to maximise the client’s position in any potential proceedings.

Public law involves the interaction of an individual with a state authority.

This can arise in a variety of settings, ranging from inquests to professional regulatory proceedings and Judicial Reviews.

Inquests are investigation by a coroner into violent or unnatural deaths, which frequently involve state agencies.

Professional regulatory proceedings involve the investigation and disciplining of professionals by their regulator who considers that the professional’s conduct may have breached the relevant professional standards.

Judicials Reviews involve a High Court Judge reviewing the decision of a public authority to determine whether the decision may be challenged by an individual or organisation affected by the decision.

Many state agencies seize assets as an exercise of their powers.  Such decision may be appealed in a tribunal or court, depending on the public authority involved.
