Edwin Coe celebrating win with client, Keep Sunday Special, on defeat of Government on Sunday trading
Edwin Coe LLP is celebrating its success for client, Keep Sunday Special, in the defeat of proposals to change the Sunday trading laws defeated in the Commons.
The firm had started the process for judicial review of the Government’s consultation leading to the introduction of the legislation.
David Greene, senior partner of Edwin Coe, said
“We have for many years supported the convenience store sector so it was natural for it to turn to us to question the new legislation. We started the procedure for judicial review because we believed the Government had acted unlawfully in its consultation. We will not now have to pursue that process. Good sense has prevailed. The existing law may not be seen as perfect for all but it is a sensible compromise.”
