Solicitor - Civil Litigation
Bhatt Murphy Solicitors
I am a solicitor in the Actions Against the Police Team. I qualified in 2002 and have since dedicated my practice to protecting human rights and civil liberties. I have brought numerous challenges against police forces across the country for assault and battery, false imprisonment, malicious prosecution, misfeasance in public office, discrimination and breaches of the Human Rights Act 1998. I have achieved many successful outcomes for clients over the years.
I also have substantial experience in judicial review and inquests, and represent families of those who have died in police or prison custody or following contact with the police. Notable inquests include Rashan Charles, whose restraint related death was captured on CCTV - see https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-44551132.
I currently represent the bereaved families of Aston McLean, Jeffrey McIntyre and Lemar Stewart and I act for a Hillsborough survivor in a misfeasance claim.
I am also experienced in public inquiries and have acted in the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse.
I am involved in a variety of challenges and I am committed to assisting clients in protecting civil rights and liberties through the law.
