Our Actions against the Police and Public Bodies Solicitors in London have an established history of successfully holding public authorities to account for misconduct, unlawful acts, and abuses of power.

How can we help?

The thought of bringing a complaint against the police or a compensation claim against the police (or some other public body) is a daunting one. That’s where we come in. Having someone who believes your version of events and is prepared to fight your corner is essential if you’re going to have a chance of getting justice. We can help you make a complaint, seek compensation and pursue judicial review of administrative decisions.

It is important to note that any actions against police and public bodies need to be taken within a specified period, and any delays may result in you losing the right to pursue your action. Therefore, it is extremely important you contact us to help as soon as possible.
