Police Law: Mainly Defendant Department

Current View:

This content is provided by DWF.


The team is best known for dealing with complex, multi-party litigation particularly claims under the Human Rights Act 1998 for breach of Article 2, failures to investigate under Articles 3 and 4. Further, the team is regularly instructed upon claims brought for breach of privacy/misuse of private information and associated Human Rights Act and Data Protection Act claims. 

DWF instructions are highly complex and sensitive matters, many of which attract national media attention and are redefining and challenging the boundaries of current case law and these are evidenced in the matter summaries below along with hyperlinks to relevant media articles.
