Reported Cases

Over the past 15 years, we have established ourselves as one of the leading Human Rights Chambers – not only in the UK, but across the International community.  Our barristers boast a wealth of skills and experience, the result of which is a broad and varied range of fascinating and often ground breaking case studies.  In recent months, Chambers have been successful in the following cases:

i) The British Muslim parents of an autistic person, who wanted  the right to take their son abroad, against the wishes of the local authority:   X City Council v MB & Ors [2006] EWHC 168 (Fam);

(ii) A British Sikh daughter in law in a test case for compensation for civil harassment against her mother in law,  arising out of ill-treatment within the extended family during four months of marriage: Singh v Bhakar [2007] 1 FLR 880.
