Our Freedom of Information and Environmental Information Regulation (EIR) team work as an integral part of our public sector team, which has been at the forefront of many new developments in the public sector. We have an intimate understanding of public sector objectives and drivers, experience of many high profile FOI and EIR matters, and in depth knowledge of the legal FOI and EIR framework – a unique combination which makes sure that we can deliver the results and support our clients need in this complex area.

We advise on a full range of FOI and EIR issues for public authorities including general compliance audits and strategies; complaints and investigations from the Scottish Information Commissioner and the Information Commissioner’s Office; management of information request responses; advising on the application of exemptions and exceptions; and providing support to appeals panels.

Our clients include many private sector organisations working with public authorities, who need to understand the FOI and EIR landscape in delivering services.

We also offer a number of tailored FOI and EIR packages for clients, including helplines and training workshops.
