In relation to the water, electricity, telecommunications and securities industries where regulation is an issue, our Corporate + Commercial team can provide relevant industry specific advice about the appropriate regulatory frameworks and assist clients in their dealings with the appropriate regulator.
If you are a company that has been affected by decisions of a public body, or you are a public body desirous of ensuring that you are carrying out your duties and acting within your statutory powers, our Corporate + Commercial or Litigation team can advise you. The team offers practical advice on issues such as judicial review, ultra vires and intra vires issues and the extent to which private bodies may be subject to public law.
