Supreme Court and Privy Councils

Historically, the Sharpe Pritchard litigation team has acted on a significant number of appeals to the Supreme Court (and formerly, the House of Lords) both in bringing and defending appeals. These appeals have involved both criminal and civil matters, sometimes with public funding. The team have been able to cover appeals across a full range of subject matters including criminal appeals, judicial reviews and injunctions.

The team has a wealth of experience in local authority cases.

Our experienced team are uniquely placed to undertake complex Supreme Court cases often acting at the very last moment including in the launch of notices of objection.

Many QCs and junior counsel recommend Sharpe Pritchard to undertake Supreme Court work because of our specialist expertise. This expertise enables us to act quickly, efficiently and effectively for our clients. We have a track record of a significant number of successes in the Supreme Court and previously the House of Lords.

Privy Council

We routinely act as a Privy Council agent, both defending and pursuing appeals to the Privy Council. The team have experience across multiple jurisdictions including the Isle of Man, Turks and Caicos Islands and Jersey.  This familiarity with such a niche area of practice ensures that solicitor clients gain invaluable experience, expertise and assistance to support their clients’ appeals.
