Viscaria has the leading election law team. More members of Viscaria are featured in the election law section of Chambers & Partners Bar Guide than from any other set. We are involved in all the leading cases, ranging from local government and mayoral elections to Parliamentary and European Parliament elections. We are able to advise on all types of election issues, utilising specialist knowledge and our expertise in this area’s intersection with human rights, public, media and information, and criminal law.
Our members in this team have all been involved in election petitions at every level, from initial scrutiny to Divisional Court hearings. We have acted in the groundbreaking Oldham East and Saddleworth general election petition (a successful challenge to the election of Phil Woolas MP), the Winchester general election petition, the Mayor of Tower Hamlets case, Knight v Nicholls  EWHC 3177 (QB), Belle Vale and the Bordesley Green and Waltham Forest petitions.
Our expertise in election law extends beyond governmental elections and into elections in different contexts, e.g. trade unions, political parties, private members’ clubs, and sporting and trade associations.
