We offer the following services: (i) advising on disputes with a political angle including holding state authorities to account; (ii) engaging with regulators on political topics; and (iii) public advocacy and advisory work, including specific purpose-driven insights.
Our broad experience in advising on political disputes encompasses issues of policy in political parties, challenging public bodies in the UK and internationally, upholding the UK's constitution, human rights, and defending those who are the subject of politically motivated persecution.
In particular, we have acted for individuals and non-governmental organisations in judicial review claims, including in two of the most high profile judicial reviews in recent times, for Gina Miller. Our work also spans advising members of political parties unfairly targeted for sanction or abuse, defending politically motivated extradition requests, and acting for individuals or groups whose human rights have been breached.
We act for individuals and organisations in relation to high profile investigations by public bodies and Parliamentary committees that are often linked to key issues of the day. We advise both the subjects of investigations and those seeking to achieve change and assert their rights through the assistance of regulatory bodies. Our work includes acting for the Jewish Labour Movement in relation to the investigation into antisemitism in the Labour Party, acting for clients in relation to issues raised before the Charities Commission and advising in relation to attendances before Parliamentary committees.
We are experienced in helping those who are seeking to input into policy, engage with government decision makers or change the law. Navigating the world of Westminster, Whitehall, the plethora of public bodies and the media, our success in this area is because we know how to make the right arguments, to the right people at the right time. Our approach is to generate an evidence base using economic, consumer and political research as a platform for engagement with the media, government, regulators and the wider policy community.
In our political consultancy work, we also work closely with Mishcon Purpose to combine specialist advice and purpose-driven insight to help clients seeking to contribute to the shaping of government policy.
