The Public Law team at Thirty Nine Essex Street comprises leading practitioners who are recognised for their expertise in public law, as well as in related fields such as local government law, environmental and planning law, regulatory and disciplinary law, the Court of Protection and public inquiries. Our goal is to offer first-rate advice and assistance on all issues relating to decision-making by public authorities.
Chambers UK describes the Public Law team as “user-friendly”, “shot through with quality” and “a more than credible opponent for any set in the field”. Legal 500 states that Thirty Nine Essex Street “unfailingly responds to the most difficult and urgent situations”.
We can draw together teams of barristers who range from experienced silks to the more recently qualified, to offer a comprehensive and cost-effective service addressing all aspects of a legal problem. Our clients include central government departments and agencies, local authorities, educational bodies, the Official Solicitor, regulators, health authorities and care trusts, private care providers, charities and NGOs, as well as patients, service users and private litigants. Members undertake public and privately funded work, as well acting pro bono and in public interest challenges.
Members of the Thirty Nine Essex Street Public Law team have substantial experience in arbitration and alternative dispute resolution, as well as in litigation before courts and domestic tribunals. We can offer advice and expertise in resolving disputes without a court hearing.
Instructions are accepted through solicitors, and also through direct professional access from recognised organisations and overseas lawyers.
