Public Law and Human Rights
Public law and human rights cases are often at the cutting edge of legal developments in the UK and serve to help maintain the balance between the interests of the individual and the State. For many years, Blackstone Chambers has been the home of barristers dedicated to ensuring that the rights and interests not only of individuals but also of regulatory bodies and companies are recognised and protected.
Blackstone Chambers is particularly noted for its ability to provide commercial advice in a public law context. The set has an almost unique mixture of commercial and public law expertise and is able to offer lateral thinking practitioners at all levels of experience able to operate to their client’s advantage.
Blackstone Chambers won Set of the Year for Human Rights and Public Law 2012 at the Chambers Bar Awards.
Blackstone Chambers also has a dedicated Environment Group.
