Chambers UK, A Clients Guide to the UK Legal Profession

Our genuine expertise in administrative and public law, together with our real enthusiasm for the work we do, means we are the team of choice for public bodies and major statutory regulators across both industry and professional sectors.

Our goal is to make sure the impact of your activities is always targeted and without unintended consequences. It is therefore extremely important to us to make sure we understand your organisational priorities as well as the interests of your major stakeholders.

With this focus and our understanding of the wider issues at stake, we can help to ensure you are confidently delivering your key objectives in a targeted, cost effective way and, importantly, within the framework of your statutory duties and responsibilities.

How we work with you

As a consequence of this approach, statutory regulators and public bodies come to us for help in a wide range of circumstances, including:

  • The introduction, planning and implementation of new schemes, based on new statutory powers
  • To assess the suitability of existing powers in dynamic sectors
  • To refresh policies and procedures so that they continue to be fit for purpose
  • To ensure compliance with consultation obligations
  • Observance of the public sector equality duty and human rights legislation.
  • Internal investigations and inquiries

In all our work we are committed to ensuring true organisational learning takes place, working with our public sector clients to ensure knowledge is filtered to all levels of the organisation.

Our work spans across a wide range of sectors; we are particularly known for our work with in-house legal teams in the financial, legal, healthcare and energy sectors.

We work with public bodies at the early stages of a project or new scheme, as well as providing urgent advice when an unexpected situation arises. Here, the seniority of our team enables us to bring mature and measured judgement. At all times, we strive to work with you to provide clear, timely and commercial advice, which can be easily communicated to all members of your team.


You can be confident that you will be working with a team of senior lawyers led by Adam Chapman, and partners Sophie Kemp and Emily Carter. Our expertise extends to our Regulatory team, who we work extremely closely with, allowing us to resource a substantial and experienced advisory team.
