  • Negotiating the minefield of administrative decisions

    There are many situations where decisions are made by organisations such as local authorities (during the tendering process, the grant of contracts or planning decisions, for example) or professional or disciplinary bodies where a party may wish to challenge the outcome. A party with an interest in a decision may feel aggrieved by the outcome due to what appears to be a conflict of interest by those making the decision, or the appearance of bias. This may have serious consequences for in-house lawyers acting for organisations subject to such decisions, and therefore this briefing is intended to provide a general overview of the areas to consider. Challenging judicial or quasi-judicial decisions where there is a conflict of interest was considered by James Levy in a previous briefing (IHL146, p37-40).
