Cormac McDonough

Cormac McDonough | Associate 020 7874 8461

I joined Hodge Jones and Allen as a paralegal in 2009. Following the completion of my legal training, I qualified as a solicitor in 2013.

As a member of the Civil Liberties department, I specialise in civil actions and human rights claims against the police and other public authorities; Inquests following deaths in custody; compensation applications for victims of miscarriage of justice; judicial review challenges and personal injury claims.

I have a particular interest in civil actions resulting from police misconduct at public demonstrations; where protesters rights to freedom of assembly and expression have been compromised. I have acted for victims of police misconduct at the 2009 G20 anti-capitalism demonstrations; the 2011 ‘Royal Wedding’ anti-monarchist demonstrations; the Critical Mass bicycle ride during the London Olympics opening ceremony; anti-deportation demonstrations at Colnbrook Immigration Detention Centre and numerous anti-austerity demonstrations.
