  • Mental health
  • General Medical Council
  • DTI
  • Planning
  • Corruption in public bodies
  • Homelessness and housing

Members of chambers have been instructed in some of the leading recent cases in their areas and provide advice on policy issues to local authorities and other public bodies. Many combine their public law practices with other specialisms and so are able to offer a wide range of expertise and experience to both private and public body clients.
