Olivia Carter




I am a Partner in the Litigation, Advisory and Regulatory department at Bevan Brittan LLP specialising in public law and representing a broad range of clients including local authorities, statutory regulators, NHS commissioners, NHS providers and universities.

I have acted on numerous complex judicial review challenges relating to decisions on funding, large-scale outsourcing projects, the restructuring of public bodies and cuts to public services. In particular I acted for the council in R (Nash) v London Borough of Barnet [2013] and I am currently advising Northern Eastern Western Devon CCG in respect of challenges to its decision to make changes to inpatient services in community hospitals.

I regularly advise clients on contentious procurement issues, risk and dispute avoidance, and have considerable experience of procurement challenges commenced under the Public Contracts Regulations 2006. I represented Mears in Mears v Leeds City Council [2011] and am presently representing the council in OpenView v London Borough of Merton.
