I am a human rights lawyer working as a freelance researcher, investigator and campaigner.

More about me

My Experience – I qualified as a solicitor in 2014.  Over the past ten years I have worked in a range of leading human rights and civil liberties law firms and NGOs, including Reprieve, Louisiana Capital Assistance Center, Stonewall, Liberty, Bindmans LLP, Matthew Gold & Co, Global Witness, Hackney Community Law Centre, Hackney Migrant Centre and OpenDemocracy. Beside my legal human rights training, I have skills and experience in research, investigation, litigation, fundraising and campaigning.

My Objectives – I am dedicated to holding state and corporate power to account, particularly when such power is used at the expense of marginalised individuals. Having qualified as a solicitor, I now work as an independent consultant on research and campaigning projects with a human rights and legal focus.

Current Focus – I recently completed a research report for Hackney Community Law Centre and Hackney Migrant Centre funded by the Strategic Legal Fund for Vulnerable Young Migrants.  I am currently working at openDemocracy as the Editor of openJustice, a new section dedicated to UK justice issues.
