The lawyers at Charles A. Gomez & Co have wide experience in the fields of Constitutional and Administrative Law and Civil Rights.
We have led on constitutional motions relating to judicial independence, and equality of arms in the trial process.
As a result of one of our initiatives, the entire legal aid system was reviewed. In another case, an import duty was found to be illegal and further still, anti-money laundering regulations were held invalid and had to be recast.
On the administrative front, our successes have included a judicial review involving an Environmental Impact Assessment for a £150,000,000 power station at one level, and the annulment of a labour inspection at another level.
We represented Chief Justice Schofeild as solicitors in the Privy Council in London when he was suspended.
At the moment we are acting for the ex-Commissioner of the Royal Gibraltar Police in a Commission of Inquiry which we demanded on his behalf.
Keeping the executive powers of the State in check has always been a fundamental duty of lawyers.
As those powers increase exponentially as a result of the Coronavirus catastrophe, the courageous performance of that duty is more necessary than ever.
