Public Law & Regulatory

We work on both sides of the public law and regulatory fence

Our team works with all types of organisations – public and private – to navigate the public law and regulatory opportunities and challenges relevant to them.

We help public and regulatory bodies shape their decisions, formulate policy, innovate, and engage with stakeholders. Equally, we work with businesses, individuals, and trade unions to assess whether those who govern or regulate them do so in the right way.

We're particularly good at:
judicial review

What is judicial review?

Judicial review is a court proceeding where a judge reviews whether a public body’s decision or action is lawful. It focuses on the way a decision has been made – rather than whether the conclusion was right or wrong.

How can Capital help?

We work with various public and regulatory bodies – helping them to exercise their powers, discharge their duties, and make robust decisions. If you’re an organisation looking to hold a decision maker to account, we can represent you, too.  Having a home on both sides of the fence gives us a holistic perspective.

Excellent all round. Very fast response times, good advice, short pithy answers, a real appreciation of the demands of in-house lawyers. Capital have provided good value for money being both cheaper and with a better quality of advice than the central London law firms we used to use.
