...meticulous in the way that he assembles objective evidence.

FIRST TIER TRIBUNAL JUDGE

Always a pleasure to instruct. We can always be assured he will do his best for our clients.

DANIELLE FERNANDES, AITKEN HARTER

Jeremy brought to the proceedings a feeling of teamwork and inclusivity which, as instructing solicitors, we often do not feel... He was absolutely top-class counsel. I would actively seek him out to instruct him in future.

CLAIRE SOLTANI, IRIS LAW

The client was absolutely delighted and left a message with reception that Jeremy was very good.

Jeremy accepts instructions in London, the South East, Birmingham and the Midlands.

Jeremy joined Goldsmith Chambers in June 2020, having already begun to build a successful mixed practice. Much of his work is in immigration and public law, having represented many clients in both tiers of the Immigration and Asylum Tribunal, at bail hearings and asylum, human rights and EEA appeals. Alongside a thorough and clear-thinking approach to cases, he has a reputation for putting clients at ease and ensuring they give their best evidence. He has a particular expertise in asylum claims with a religious or religiopolitical dimension.

During pupillage, Jeremy gained experience in the areas of actions against the police, inquests and criminal appeals concerning victims of human trafficking. He retains a close interest in these areas, and has successfully represented many clients in complex cases in the Youth Court, Magistrates’ Court and Crown Court. He has represented defendants involved in the Extinction Rebellion protests, and has an interest in all areas of free speech, protest law and whistleblowing.

Jeremy has also already gained considerable experience in the Family Court, including a particularly high profile Client, where his calm but focused approach has achieved strong outcomes for clients. He also has experience applying for and contesting orders in cases involving allegations of domestic violence.

Jeremy has a life-long commitment to animal rights, and is a member of ALAW, the UK Centre for Animal Law (https://www.alaw.org.uk/).

Alongside studying for the Bar, Jeremy volunteered with Detention Action and the Bar Pro Bono Unit (now ‘Advocate’), and undertook a traineeship at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg. He served for two years as a member of the Young Lawyers Committee of the Human Rights Lawyers Association. In his earlier career Jeremy worked as a Church of England priest. His undergraduate and postgraduate degrees are in music and theology, and he has a particular interest in post-holocaust discourse.
