Local Government

Members of Monckton Chambers advise and act in a broad range of areas of law relevant to local authorities.

We have a well established reputation in dealing in particular with issues of procurement law, tender disputes, project finance, PFI/PPP matters and state aid. Equally, Chambers offers expertise in judicial review, environmental law, education law, discrimination, employment law, VAT, freedom of information and data protection, and in identifying risks arising in connection with proposed reorganisations of public services provision.

Chambers values the long association it has established directly with a number of local authorities’ legal teams, which includes arranging in-house seminars on common issues such as procurement law, as well as providing advice and litigation assistance as required.
