Gideon is an associate solicitor working with Shubhaa Srinivasan in the international and group claims department.

Gideon joined Leigh Day in September 2008 as a trainee and undertook seats in the international and group claims and human rights departments, gathering experience across a range of private and public law practice areas,  before qualifying into the international and group claims department in September 2010.
Since joining the firm, Gideon has worked in high profile actions on the domestic and international stage. These have included seeking a new inquest into the death of the former government weapons expert, Dr David Kelly and acting for former Iraqi interpreters employed by the British Army to help with its operations there between 2003 and 2009 who alleged that they were left defenceless by their employers against reprisal attacks by militia opposed to the British presence in Iraq.

He previously studied Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge before retraining as a solicitor and has also volunteered with Reprieve, the Law Centre and the Free Representation Unit.
