Profile / Experience
I am a Caseworker in the Public Law department in the Harrow office at Duncan Lewis.
I work on a broad range of human rights claims, judicial reviews, and asylum and immigration matters in a team of solicitors, trainees and caseworkers under the supervision of Sheroy Zaq and director Toufique Hossain. My role as a caseworker involves assisting the team with case progression and third-party and client correspondence on a wide range of public law and human rights matters, often in relation to vulnerable clients. I have a particular interest in European human rights law and international public law issues, having completed an LL.M. in European Union law.
Before I joined Duncan Lewis, I interned at the Committee on Human Rights of the National Academies in Washington D.C. where I had my own human rights casework focusing on enforced disappearances in Tajikistan, Afghanistan and China. During the internship, I was able to help secure the release of a Tajik-Canadian PhD student who was illegally detained in Tajikistan. I have also worked at the human rights organisation, International Memorial, in Moscow, and Lawyers for a People’s Vote during which time I had a number of blogs and articles published.
Additionally, I have volunteered at the Ealing Advice Centre and Queen Mary’s Legal Advice Centre where I assisted on a range of legal matters, including giving bespoke workshops on the legal issues surrounding ‘revenge porn’ to sixth form students.
I am fluent in German and have a working knowledge of French, and a basic knowledge of Russian.
