Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
  1. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

    This legislation has important implications for public authorities required to comply with it, and also for the businesses they deal with, as businesses may find their transactions become the subject of FOIA requests by competitors or other members of the public.

    We provide advice to businesses and authorities on the effect of the FOIA and its scope, including:

    • Acting for organisations looking to resist FOIA requests and in particular advising on the application of the numerous exemptions to the disclosure rules
    • Acting for businesses who may wish to make use of the FOIA in order to obtain information on transactions entered into by public authorities
