Judicial review

Specialist judicial review solicitors

Judicial review is a process that requires a judge to assess the lawfulness of a decision or course of action taken by a public authority, court, tribunal or central government department or agency.

Maitland Walker can act for claimants and defendants in JR applications to overturn a decision where the public body has acted unlawfully and failed to comply with its legal obligations.

We can advise on the merits of bringing or defending applications and taking forward the application to final hearing. We have an experienced team - ranked in the Legal 500 - who are able to deal with judicial review applications quickly and cost effectively.

We can assist with specialist judicial review applications in areas such as:

  • Planning
  • Property
  • Procurement
  • Property
  • Commercial

Our Litigation & Dispute Resolution team give practical and strategic advice that understands your priorities.

  • Julian Maitland-Walker is a seasoned hand who is the perfect partner for both clients and Counsel
  • I have worked with Julian Maitland-Walker and Sheree-Ann Virgin. Both appear to me to be excellent practitioners who understand the needs of their client and ensure that the litigation is conducted in a way that meets those needs. They are both extremely pleasant to deal with. They are intelligent and thoughtful individuals with good commercial instincts.
  • In my experience, Maitland Walker’s key strength lies in representing clients in commercial litigation who may not be familiar with the litigation process and ensuring that it is demystified such that the client can pursue the matter efficiently and effectively.
  • Sheree-Ann Virgin is fantastic to work with. She takes a very collaborative approach and is not at all adverse to rolling up her sleeves and getting stuck into the weeds of the case.
