Freedom of Information

We regularly advise commercial entities on their rights to access to information held by public bodies and central government, whether in relation to specific public law disputes or more generally.

We have expertise in drafting requests for disclosure of material held by public bodies and in pursuing such requests if necessary on appeal.

We have specific experience of dealing with complaints to the UK Information Commissioner and appeals to the Information Tribunal.

Our expertise also covers rights of access to environmental information and we have advised clients on issues relating to the disclosure of such material.
