Practice Areas

I am the national head of public law at Irwin Mitchell. My expertise is in judicial review, human rights, medical ethics, disputes and court of protection and commercial and procurement public law matters.

I have extensive experience in conducting successful judicial review cases relating to a wide range of public functions: social services, healthcare, housing, education, criminal justice and prison law.

I advise and litigate in a wide range of public law and civil liberties work, acting for individuals, institutions and businesses. I specialise in the healthcare and community care fields.

I lead a national team of lawyers undertaking public law health and social care work. In the last few years, I have become heavily involved in adult welfare/medical treatment proceedings brought by local authorities and health trusts, acting for the official solicitor in declaratory High Court or Court of Protection proceedings, or guardianship proceedings, in the county courts, involving individuals who may lack capacity to manage their affairs and decide on welfare, residence, contact and healthcare matters themselves.
