Local government finance
In the area of local government finance, our barristers offer advisory and advocacy services in relation to steps involved in the enforcement of council tax and non-domestic rates (business rates).

We accept instructions from billing authorities and defendants / respondents.

We offer specialist advice and advocacy services in relation to:
