Human Rights

The heart of the firm’s ethos is to protect the rights of the individual. Since the firm was established in 1979, we have developed an international reputation for excellence and expertise by successfully challenging inequality and unfairness from the State.

We are a dedicated team of experienced solicitors determined to protect the rights and civil liberties of all sections of society. We place particular emphasis on the protection of vulnerable sections of society.

The Human Rights Act protects your fundamental human rights enshrined in the European Convention on Human Rights. These rights include the right to life, the right to freedom from torture and inhuman degrading treatment, the right to privacy and respect for family life, the right to a fair trial and the right to freedom from discrimination.
