Jeremy’s practice encompasses immigration and asylum, criminal defence, coroners’ inquests and professional regulation, with a strong focus on human rights.
Much of his work has had a high media profile, particularly in the area of civil liberties and its implications have been referred to in parliament as prompting primary legislation – DPP v Dziurzynski, Times 08-Jul-02,  EWHC 1380; HO circular 34/2005.
In suitable cases Jeremy will undertake direct access work directly for members of the public.
Jeremy’s civil liberties experience includes: (i) defending the first criminal prosecution of the new offences (re animal research organizations) under s 145/6 Serious Organised Crime and Police Act 2005 at the Old Bailey; (ii) defending the second proceedings charging the same offences (a Very High Cost Case at Birmingham CC- contract manager agreed exemption from local counsel rules due to expertise); and (iii) various proceedings relating to the activities of activists around the country; civil actions against the police and defending High Court actions and Committal applications brought by claimants including Monsanto, Huntingdon Life Sciences, John Lewis and Circus King.
