Our experienced team of judicial review solicitors can advise and support councils and local authorities with all aspects of judicial review.

We use our extensive legal and sector knowledge to work in partnership with councils and local authorities who are either facing a challenge themselves, or who wish to challenge a decision of, for example, the Secretary of State or, increasingly, a decision about health provision. It is always best to try and resolve disputes through mediation or other alternatives to court proceedings - but it may not always be possible. When mediation isn't successful, you need to consider starting the process of bringing a judicial review claim. It has to be done within three months of the decision being made.
