BDB Pitmans is one of the few firms with experience acting as Privy Council Agents in appeals from offshore jurisdictions to the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council.

Our specialist team has experience representing both appellants and respondents, and we have acted in appeals involving companies and individuals.

We are ideally positioned to handle the procedural aspects of the appeal for overseas law firms and their clients.

Our knowledge and experience of the rules and special practices governing appeals to the Privy Council enable us to progress appeals efficiently and cost-effectively and recover as much of the costs as possible.

Our strong working relationship with the Registry and close links to barristers experienced at appearing before the Board assists with the smooth running of appeals.
