Human Rights

Human Rights are defined as basic rights and freedoms to which all humans are entitled such as civil and political rights, the right to life and liberty, freedom of thought and expression, equality before the law, social, cultural and economic rights, including the right to participate in culture, the right to food, the right to work, and the right to education.

Protecting the rights and freedoms of ordinary people and challenging discrimination are at the heart of our work.  We act for individuals who believe their human rights are being violated by the state or other powerful bodies. Not all of our human rights and public law work is high-profile. Most of our cases never hit the headlines, but they are every bit as significant and important to those involved. Whatever the nature of the case, we provide the same level of commitment and expertise. Our lawyers are creative and pioneering; we continue to push at the boundaries of human rights law in this country. We have the knowledge and expertise to take challenging, often one-off, cases and achieve the best possible results for our clients.
