Governance

We provide advice to authorities, schools and others on governance structures, the creation of Interim Executive Boards and compliance with regulatory requirements.

We offer advice and assistance on matters relating to governance, ethics and administration that affect public bodies. This includes local authority powers and duties, conducting investigations into complaints against members, and advising new members on their roles and responsibilities.

We offer advice on constitutional issues such as interpretation of the constitution, decision making, delegations, and the drafting and updating of constitutional documents, codes and protocols.

We can also attend committee meetings and provide legal advice, checking reports prior to inclusion on Council meeting agendas, and advising on decision making procedures and reporting requirements.

We advise on other regulatory and compliance issues such as advice on corporate standards and ethical governance, public law including judicial review, and regulation of the Investigatory Powers Act.
