Civil Liberties & Inquests

Civil Liberties

Our Civil Liberties specialists have exceptional experience in judicial review cases for over twenty years.


Our team are nationally recognised as specialists in this area with excellent connections to leading barristers’ chambers. You can have confidence that your case will be handled efficiently and with regular updates in what can be a very fast paced area of law.

Everyone has rights and we expect these to be upheld. But what happens when the people you expect to help you are actually the ones who have left you feeling like you have been wronged?


What do you do when a decision has been made by a public authority such as the local council, police force etc that you feel is unlawful and violates your rights?


Whilst you may feel that you are powerless against such authorities we can help you enforce your rights.

Professional legal advice can’t always stop the injustice occurring but it can give help you obtain justice in the end.
