Public & Administrative Law

Public law is at the heart of the relationship between the state, on one hand, and individuals or businesses on the other. Legal issues arising in the context of public law disputes are often cross-cutting, involving areas of law as diverse as EU Law, commercial regulation, human rights law or public and private international law. Regardless of the complexity of a particular public law dispute Monckton Chambers has a unique blend of expertise with members able to assist.
