The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (JCPC) is the court of final court of appeal for many Commonwealth and Caribbean countries. Presided over by the same judges as those sitting in the UK Supreme Court, its decisions are highly persuasive in domestic UK proceedings as well as across the common law world.

Our members have been called to foreign jurisdictions, including but not limited to: Antigua, Bahamas, Barbados, British Virgin Islands, the Cayman Islands, Dominica, Gibraltar, Hong Kong, Jamaica, Mauritius, Turks and Caicos and Trinidad & Tobago.

We regularly appear in the JCPC representing individuals, public interest groups, foreign companies, governments (including government agencies), local government departments and regulatory bodies amongst others. The appeals often concern difficult and interesting points of constitutional and human rights law, whether arising in the context of civil and commercial disputes, criminal appeals or appeals from domestic constitutional claims. Many of these cases have contributed to the development of key principles of the common law. We are recognised as the go-to set for JCPC Appeals.
