Objections and Appeals

“Administrative procedural law: a trade of its own.”

Permits, exemptions, penalties, zoning plans, decisions under the Government Information Public Access Act, or the dismissal of a civil servant; all these are examples of decisions taken by administrative authorities. This means that administrative legal proceedings are open: objection, appeal to the Court and appeal to the Council of State.

Sometimes the decision is preceded by a preparatory procedure with the opportunity of submitting an opinion. Once a decision has been taken, in urgent cases the Court may be requested to suspend the decision.

The Administrative Law team has many years of experience in administrative procedural law and knows the General Administrative Law Act inside out.
