Members of Henderson Chambers Appear in Novel Public Law Challenges
Morris J has delivered a judgment in the first ever appeal to the High Court against a financial sanction imposed by the Pubs Code Adjudicator (PCA). It explores and determines the proper scope of such an appeal. Adam Heppinstall QC appeared, with Conor McCarthy of Monckton Chambers, for the PCA. The judgment is available here.
Adam also recently appeared for the Total interested parties before Thornton J in the renewed oral permission hearing in Friends of Earth’s judicial review-climate change challenge to the Government’s decision to provide export finance support to a LNG project in Mozambique, one of the biggest foreign investment in Africa to date. The claim, in part, concerns the meaning and effect of the Paris Agreement. The final hearing is expected to be later this year. Freya Foster is also instructed by the Total parties in this public law challenge.
Members of Chambers provide advice and representation across a range of public law, regulatory and procurement areas, including those engaging multi-nationals’ corporate social responsibilities under the UN Guiding Principles (including advising on the setting up and administering of OGMs) and international climate change reporting/accounting principles
