We believe in putting our clients first.
We have two vacancies in our Civil department for experienced solicitors to join our Grenfell team.
Civil Department – Grenfell team

Alternatives to litigation such as Alternative Dispute Resolution and Compensation Schemes
Inquests (deaths in custody and detention, deaths following contact with the police and other controversial deaths)
Judicial review claims and claims brought under the Human Rights Act and the Equality Act
Complaints and civil actions against the police and from immigration detention and other malpractice by immigration officials and companies contracted by the Home Office
Civil actions arising from abuses within the prisons
Challenges to the state on behalf of victims of trafficking
Actions on behalf of victims of rape, domestic violence and historic sexual abuse and against the state arising from unlawful rendition and complicity in torture
We recognise the significant benefits of a diverse and meaningfully inclusive team for the continued success of our firm and for the clients that we represent. We welcome applications from all sections of the community and we particularly encourage applications from individuals who are from under-represented groups within the profession.
