Civil liberties and human rights work includes many different areas of law, from miscarriages of justice to wrongdoing by the state.
From civil claims against the police and public authorities involving inquests, such as air pollution and deaths in prison or police custody, to other forms of state detention, such as mental health detention. We represent bereaved families where a death has been caused by actions or failures by individuals working for the state. You may be a protestor or victim of crime who needs our help.
Our Civil Liberties & Human Rights team received praise in the 2022 edition of the Chambers & Partners UK legal directory for their “proficiency in actions against authority… including the representation of political protesters, the victims of miscarriages of justice and individuals involved in military or death in custody inquests” as well as for being “highly experienced in judicial review claims and other complaint procedures”.
