Since 1 January 2021, Litigation Group has continued to provide litigation services to the majority of Government Departments, including the Ministry of Defence, and executive agencies, as well as many non-departmental public bodies.

The Group's work encompasses litigation in public and private law as well as supporting public inquiries and acting in Inquests. This has involved, amongst other things, attending in a wide range of courts, including Coroners' Courts, the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal, the Royal Courts of Justice and the Supreme Court. Our Employment and Commercial Groups similarly provide litigation services to the majority of government departments and have done so in the period in question.
