Governments, other public authorities and international bodies frequently seek the assistance of external consultants on constitutional or regulatory reforms – from the establishment of new court systems in order to maintain an independent and effective judiciary, to updating the framework of environmental protection for marine habitats.
Increasingly, this work raises specialist issues of law and legal practice on which mainstream consultancies may not always be well placed to advise. Landmark’s barristers can add both value and value-for-money in these circumstances, working either on an exclusive basis or as part of a multi-disciplinary team involving other professionals who can deal with the non-legal issues raised by the project in question.
Examples of our previous consultancy work include:
- Acting as part of a multi-disciplinary team of experts that advised the British Virgin Islands Government on the establishment of the BVI Commercial Court (a division of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court) which opened in 2009.
- Acting as an external consultant for the European Union Delegation in Cambodia in spring 2011, conducting an investigation on issues relating to the new system of land titling in Cambodia, which is partially funded by the EU.
