Taking action against local authorities and public bodies

Challenging local authorities or public bodies

As a society, we place a great deal of trust in our public bodies to make workable, measured decisions within the law for our individual and collective good. For the most part, many of our civil institutions do us proud – but when they get it wrong, their mistakes can have a serious, often devastating, impact on our lives, our families and our communities.

No matter what the nature of your concern, whether you are unhappy with a local planning decision, worried that your personal information has been compromised, need support at judicial review, or wish to challenge a school decision about your child, George Ide’s knowledgeable and approachable professionals can help.

We are experienced in helping clients protect their rights in areas such as data protection, education, healthcare and social services as well as challenging planning, environmental, human rights and civil liberties decisions at local and national level.

Our lawyers are on your side if a public body has abused its power or acted unlawfully, so if you have suffered as a consequence of public authority misconduct or your family or loved ones have been affected, contact us today to discuss your concerns.
