Profile / Experience

I am a Trainee Solicitor, currently working in the public law department at Duncan Lewis Solicitors. I joined the company in September 2016 as a caseworker in the Public Law department, under the supervision of Public Law Director, Toufique Hossain. I began a training contract in February 2018.

My areas of practice are immigration and asylum, human trafficking and public law matters, including removals challenges and ‘Dublin III’ third country cases. I have also been heavily involved in litigation challenging the Secretary of State’s removals policy (at Chapter 60 of his Enforcement Guidance and Instructions, titled ‘Judicial Review and injunctions’), as a direct result of which Secretary of State amended the policy. Judgment was handed down on 31 October 2018, finding with the Applicants that material parts of the amended policy are also unlawful but rejecting our wider arguments about access to justice. The Applicants are considering an appeal to the Court of Appeal.

Prior to working at Duncan Lewis, I was involved in legal pro bono projects working with vulnerable clients, through organisations and projects, such as the No 5 Chambers Immigration Human Rights Project, the Free Representation Unit (FRU) and Camden Community Law Centre.

I speak conversational French and Spanish.
