We have brought successful Judicial Review claims in the High Court and in the Court of Appeal.
Judicial Review is by its nature extremely wide-ranging. It involves the Court examining decisions made by public bodies to ensure that the particular body has acted lawfully. Such bodies can include those that affect everyday lives such as County Councils or the planning department of a District Council. Equally so, Courts and Tribunals themselves can be subject to Judicial Review.
Examples of challenge are acting unfairly or unreasonably, not acting in accordance with the law, acting irrationally or failing to justify a decision.
Time is of the essence when bringing a Judicial Review claim and a claim must be brought within three months of the action or omission complained of. It is therefore essential to move very quickly in bringing such a claim to ensure it is not time-barred and consult us at the earliest opportunity.
