Ravi is the Head of Public Law and Public International Law at ITN Solicitors.
Ravi has developed a range of expertise in public law, judicial review and international law.
In 2017 Ravi was nominated in the Law Society's Excellence Awards and the Legal Aid Lawyer Awards. He is also mentioned in the prestigous Legal 500 in the Human Rights & Civil Liberties section.
His practice encompasses a wide range of areas including national security, privacy, data and information law, European law, fair trial rights, regulatory judicial review, civil claims against central government departments and claims against private entities performing public duties.
Ravi is regularly instructed on high-profile and precedent setting litigation. Recent highlights of his practice include challenges to diplomatic immunity, a successful challenge to the Home Office’s practice of systematically imposing curfews on migrants without lawful authority and a successful challenge to the Disclosure and Barring Service regime. These cases often lead to appeals, which have given ITN’s public law team a wealth of experience the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. Ravi has also litigated regularly in the international tribunals and regional courts, including the International Criminal Court and European Court of Human Rights.
Ravi is instructed by a range of clients, from individual clients to NGOs and action groups to international state actors. Having a wide and varied range of clients means that he is able to lend his expertise to the various public law challenges that clients may face.
Ravi has a particular interest in data protection. In an age where non-state actors are taking an increasing role in controlling data, Ravi has developed a niche expertise in advising clients on how to challenge the misuse of personal information. He is regularly sought to provide commentary in the media on rights protection in the digital age.
Ravi undertakes legal aid work and is also able to represent clients on a ‘no win, no fee’ basis where appropriate. He has experience of advising on costs and funding issues for both individuals and groups and can help guide clients through complex litigation with confidence in the strategy and costs associated. He also regularly advises organisations and groups on litigation strategy to further policy objectives and on related media strategy.
Prior to joining ITN, Ravi worked at Reprieve and the International Commission of Jurists. Ravi joined ITN in 2010 and qualified as a solicitor with the firm in 2013.
Ravi was short-listed for both the Law Society Excellence Awards and the LAPG Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards in 2017, as Junior Lawyer of the Year.
