Red Lion Chambers has invaluable experience in judicial reviews. Our reputation acting in regulatory and criminal law cases has given us the tactical acumen and knowledge required for this area of law. We can therefore advise clients on pre-action procedures and provide counsel on what is required to build a strong case.
Members regularly undertake administrative court work, whether in judicial review proceedings, or cases stated to the divisional court. These often concern control orders and decisions to exclude or deport individuals. Other cases include more straightforward appeals derived from Magistrates’ Court decisions.
Members can represent both claimants and defendants involved in the judicial review process. Moreover, we have the legal expertise and understanding to help clients resolve matters by eliminating the need to go to court.
