Bindmans offers a custom-made service to businesses, regulatory and statutory bodies, enabling them to move forward confidently in an ever more complex legal environment.
We combine unrivalled legal knowledge and expertise with value for money. We are experienced at advising on formulating and implementing policies, to ensure that decision-making is legally sound. Where challenges are made, we can give a rapid and clear assessment of the options and the risks involved. If legal action is unavoidable, we will act robustly on your behalf to ensure the best possible outcome.
Our lawyers are leaders in their field and pride themselves on their accessibility. They give timely and decisive advice, to provide practicable and sensible solutions to legal questions.
Bindmans has been at the forefront of human rights legal work for more than 30 years, acting for organisations and individuals. We have unmatched expertise, not just in the law as it is now, but also in how it is likely to develop. We can put legislation in context and will work in partnership to ensure our public and regulatory clients are well placed to meet the challenge of future changes in a way which enables them to meet their responsibilities.
We can provide a cost-effective package of legal services, tailored to your needs. We are experienced at working collaboratively with in house legal departments, and can provide specialist training to legal and other staff. We can offer fixed fees and other innovative funding methods to ensure you get the expert legal help you need at a cost that suits your budget.
Other clients include local government, professional regulatory bodies, housing associations, universities, charities, external auditors to local government, NHS Trusts and police authorities. We have recently provided public law advice to the Parole Board and Birmingham City Council (and are members of their Employment Law panel).
As we also act for individual claimants, we can anticipate likely areas of challenge and identify weak spots from the point of view of those who are subject to, or the beneficiaries of, public powers.
