Our clients will often approach us to assist them with a review, challenge or appeal as they seek to challenge or overturn an administrative decision.

We have a thorough approach to any of these administrative processes that we are engaged in. We begin by conducting a meticulous analysis of the decision at hand, relevant legislation, and the legal framework that applies. We assess the grounds for review, challenge, or appeal, carefully examining the administrative decision, the processes followed, and any potential errors or flaws. This enables us to provide tailored advice specific to each client’s circumstances and objectives.

Throughout the review, challenge, or appeal, we maintain open and transparent communication with our clients, keeping them informed of the progress, developments, and potential implications of the proceedings. We provide clear explanations of their options and the potential outcomes, empowering them to make informed decisions. Our goal is to ensure our clients are well-equipped to effectively participate in the administrative process and protect their rights.
