2 minutes on human rights

If you believe your human rights have been denied to you Leigh Day’s human rights and civil liberties team is one of the leading team of practitioners in this specialist area in the country.

Bringing together a mixture of public law, civil liberties, discrimination, health and social care expertise, our lawyers act for individuals, groups and organisations across a wide range of legal areas.

The common thread linking all our clients is that we challenge the lawfulness of decisions, acts, omissions and policies of public bodies and authorities on their behalf.

Our human rights solicitors and lawyers are dedicated to ensuring access to justice for our clients in the notoriously expensive UK legal system. 

Physical and sexual abuse often violates the survivor’s human rights. Our specialist abuse claims solicitors have successfully acted for survivors of childhood sexual abuse, abused adults with learning difficulties, and for older people abused whilst resident in hospitals or care homes.

For further information on how we can help you fund and bring your case please contact us on 020 7650 1200 or fill in our enquiry form.
