Saoirse Kerrigan | Solicitor

skerrigan@hja.net 020 7874 8589

I specialise in actions against the police and prison authorities, immigration detention claims and judicial review. I qualified as a solicitor in 2013.

Before joining Hodge Jones and Allen LLP I spent just over two years representing claimants in actions against the police and detaining authorities at Saunders Law. I completed my training contract at Fisher Meredith LLP in November 2013 where I completed seats in public law and children law and completed a double seat in police and prison law.

Prior to my training I advised and represented individuals in asylum and immigration appeals before the First and Upper Tier Tribunal (Asylum and Immigration Chamber). I am an accredited senior immigration adviser under the Law Society Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme and I retain a special interest in immigration detention claims and migrant rights.
