I am a specialist in public law, civil liberties and human rights. My practice focuses on public law and civil claims with a human rights element.
I have recently represented the bereaved families of three victims in the Birmingham Pub Bombings inquests, a Chagossian exiled from his home as a child and a range of men, women and children challenging their treatment by public bodies including local authorities and individual police forces. I have also helped secure compensation for individual human rights violations in a range of settings, including for menstruating women treated without dignity in police cells, for children failed by local authorities and, inLL v Lord Chancellor, for a man committed to prison unlawfully.
I advise frequently on a range of specialist human rights matters, including on open justice, data protection and surveillance. I regularly advise a number of national publications on media law.
