Judicial review is a legal process by which people and companies can, in certain specific circumstances, challenge decisions by government, local authorities and other bodies who exercise public functions.
Not many legal firms have expertise in this area, but Kerseys can claim experience of this work. We have challenged local authority decisions and also decisions of government agencies including the NHS. We also have extensive experience of statutory homelessness appeals which follow a procedure and legal principles akin to judicial review.
Often a complainant has to pursue a formal complaint before embarking upon judicial review (depending on the type of complaint). In those circumstances we can also advise and assist you on the complaints process.
When judicial review action has to be taken, it has to be taken very promptly. Actions are usually barred after 3 months maximum from the decision which is being judicially reviewed.
