Public Law Solicitors

Has a public body treated you unfairly? Do you suspect that the decision was unlawful? Are you concerned your human rights have been violated by the decision of a public body?

If you suspect that a public body has made an unfair or unlawful decision or acted outside their powers we recommend you seek legal advice as soon as possible.

It is also important that decision makers do not breach laws made to protect fundamental rights and interests such as the Human Rights and Data Protection Acts 1998, the Equality Act 2010 and EU law.
