Legal 500 - Top Tier Firm 2016

Our team of Parliamentary lawyers includes three "Roll A" Parliamentary Agents. We advise you on all the procedures of Parliament and the devolved legislatures of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We also advise on new and proposed legislation that is likely to affect your operations. We draft amendments to Public Bills, and we will promote and petition against Hybrid Bills and Private Bills on your behalf.

Our parliamentary team specialises in public infrastructure schemes, including harbours, railways and other transport, reservoirs, electricity generating stations and other utilities infrastructure. We are recognised nationally as a leader in this field.

We also act for public bodies, advising them on public procurement, European law, constitutional law, human rights and the Freedom of Information Act.
