Ranked highly in the legal directories, we provide a first class service in regulatory work, with excellent counsel at all levels. We have expertise in a number of fields, including environmental, care standards, trading standards, food safety, planning, forestry and hunting. Our clerks never fail to provide a good service.
Many areas of regulatory law are well publicised and are of general application to a large number of commercial organisations and individuals alike. Other areas are as highly specialised as the activities they regulate.
The members of Albion Chambers have substantial experience in the conduct of cases reaching across this broad and nuanced sector. Our group of practitioners is drawn from various disciplines, bringing together a wealth of expertise to ensure our clients receive the appropriate specialist advice.
Our barristers prosecute and defend in actions brought by a wide range of regulators, with some also involved in advising regulators and the regulated on the development and implementation of policy.
Those we represent include multi-national corporations, as well as individuals and professionals who have found themselves the focus of the regulator’s attention.
The requirement on public bodies to provide regulatory frameworks, and the resulting burden that falls on companies, large and small, is ever-increasing. We provide frequent training to both regulatory bodies and solicitors involved in this fast-changing sector, and are accredited CPD providers. Please contact the Chambers Director, Nick Jeanes, to discuss our in-house training programmes.
Some members of Albion Chambers are also licensed to undertake work under the direct Public Access Scheme.
