Firearms Appeals

Linenhall Chambers has a team of barristers specialising in advising both respondents and appellants in relation to preparing and presenting an appeal against refusal or revocation of a firearms or shotgun certificate to the Crown Court.

The team use their deep understanding of the governance of firearms and knowledge of the legal technicalities surrounding firearms appeals to help clients achieve the desired outcome.

Our specialist barristers have experience of advising both lay clients, directly or through an instructing solicitor, where they are appealing an original decision to refuse or revoke a certificate or licence.

In addition, the team also has experience of opposing appeals on behalf of Police Forces, including providing advice on the merits of an appeal before a course of action is determined.

They are also able to assist shooting clubs and organisations in this area.

Their experience of advising a range of different types of clients means the team has an excellent working knowledge of firearms appeals and is perfectly placed to guide clients on the right steps to achieve success.

They understand the critical importance of firearms licensing for those requiring firearms and shotguns for their professional work and the devastating effects that revocation of a licence can bring for those depending on it for their livelihood as well as the impact it can have on people using them for leisure pursuits.

Our barristers help clients across England and Wales and particularly in Cheshire, North and Mid Wales.
