Parliamentary Agency

Parliamentary Agency Lawyers

There are only seven law firms nationally with a dedicated Parliamentary Agency team, and we are one of them.

Quick Enquiry

We have experience in acting on behalf of a number of public and private sector clients in petitioning against hybrid bills as well as providing strategic advice on tactics and monitoring legislation.

As the High Speed Rail (London - West Midlands) Act 2017 progressed through the House of Commons and the House of Lords, we represented a number of petitioners in opposing the bill including drafting the petitions, representing petitioners at locus standi hearings before the Select Committee, preparing for hearings before the Select Committee and obtaining and negotiating assurances from HS2.

We also have an experienced team of compulsory purchase solicitors who provide specialist advice to landowners following the acquisition of land by an Act of Parliament. The team also have experience representing claimants in claims for compensation in the Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber).


Please contact Katie Hickman on 020 7665 0913 for further information.

The 'immensely impressive’ .. team provides ‘pragmatic, commercial advice’ to many public sector clients and local authorities.
