Public Law

We are recognised as the premier public sector practice in Ireland.

We have a deep understanding of the public and regulated sector environment and the governing laws and regulations. Our expertise covers all areas from strategic advice on governance issues to statutory interpretation and legislative drafting. A core practice area of our team is judicial review and public law litigation, including contentious public procurement matters.

We have specialist expertise in advising and acting for clients in public and private inquiries of any kind – both statutory and non-statutory.

We have a deep understanding of the way public bodies function and the environment in which they operate. We specialise in advising public sector clients on what statutory bodies can properly do, and the procedures they must follow.

Our team is a national leader in professional regulation. We have extensive experience and knowledge, and act in numerous professional regulatory sectors.

We also understand that the legal environment surrounding public bodies is increasing in complexity, as pressures for efficiency and value must be reconciled with requirements of transparency, accountability, and procedural fairness.
