We are all incredibly proud that our outstanding legal team have been once again recognised by Chambers and Partners. The team as a whole have moved up the rankings to a band 3, and Legal Director Nicola Burgess is also a band 3 ranked lawyer.

Chambers interviewees provided glowing reviews of our team:

"An outstanding institution which carries out test case litigation of the highest level staffed with committed lawyers. They punch well above their weight given the size of the organisation." said one source.

Another commentator says: "They're brilliant – all of them are really approachable and capable of speaking to very vulnerable people in a jargon-free manner. They're really committed to the community."

A further interviewee describes the lawyers as "excellent," adding: "The quality of their work, both in terms of their representation of individual clients and their strategic work on behalf of migrants more generally, is extremely high."

Nicola is described as 'outstanding', with a Chambers interviewee saying, "Her strengths are her formidable knowledge of the law and practice, and that she always tries to see a way forward for her clients."
