Our public and administrative law practice deals with representing clients before administrative tribunals, guiding our clients through investigations initiated by the government and regulators and commencing applications for judicial review of administrative decisions. We have extensive experience defending businesses and individuals during all stages of administrative proceedings including appeals and hearings before administrative tribunals and judicial reviews.
We are zealous advocates for clients within this practice area, but we are also strategic thinkers. Our focus is on developing creative and cost-efficient solutions to public and administrative law problems wherever possible, as an alternative to protracted and possibly expensive litigation.
Due to our experience in this area, we are capable of providing honest opinions on the cost and chance of success for an appeal or judicial review. While results are not guaranteed, we have had past success with appeals, judicial review and appellate litigation. To ensure we are always ready to serve our clients in this area, we ensure that we stay in tune with current legislative developments and changes.
A particular sub-field of our administrative law practice is our experience in appearing before and appealing decisions to the Licence Appeal Tribunal. We routinely appear before this Tribunal on a variety of regulatory matters, including licencing, orders, and appeals, and have familiarity with the process and adjudicators.
The clients we represent include individuals, businesses, licence holders, employers of licence holders, and professionals.
We maintain relationships with regulators and work closely with them to achieve positive results for our clients. We also explore the use of alternative dispute resolution and settlement discussions where possible, should it provide the best possible outcome for the client.
Administrative decisions may be appealed to the Licence Appeal Tribunal under the following legislation:
