10/10/2019

The Chambers & Partners 2020 guide to UK solicitors is now out and ITN Solicitors are highly ranked in a number of areas.  Our Chambers profile can be found here.

The Criminal Law team is once again recommended as a firm “that frequently handles cases of significant political sensitivity, drawing on notable expertise in human rights law,” and that we have “extensive experience in complex cross-border investigations into charges of terrorism and drugs supply as well as domestic matters such as gang-related crime and homicide.”

The guide quotes our clients and other practitioners as saying:

"This is an incredibly dedicated team of people who are committed to doing the best for their clients" and that we are "a hard-working team with a true passion for justice."

Simon Natas, who is individually ranked as well, is noted as "a really excellent lawyer who is superbly meticulous," and fellow Partner Tayab Ali is referred to as "a truly exceptional lawyer, a brilliant communicator and master strategist, "who is also "always positive and a particularly good listener - we feel he values our opinion."

Our solicitors from the Civil Liberties team are recommended in three different practice areas – Civil Liberties & Human Rights, Police law, and Administrative & Public Law.

In Civil Liberties & Human Rights, Chambers & Partners consider that as a firm we exhibit a diverse practice with a number of high-profile areas of expertise including cases of national security, data retention and international criminal law. Operates in the context of both UK-specific matters and international tribunals, including instances of the detention of foreign nationals by British authorities.”  They note that we are “also sought after for advice on freedom of expression matters and human trafficking cases.”

Both Ravi Naik and Lochlinn Parker are individually ranked in the Civil Liberties section. Ravi is also ranked in the Administrative & Public Law and Lochlinn is also ranked in the Police Law section.

The guide quotes our clients and other practitioners as saying:

"My experience so far has been excellent and I've been treated with the utmost care by the firm" and highlighted partners who are "really trail-blazing in that space and doing some really exciting, innovative litigation."

Lochlinn Parker is recognised for his expertise in actions against public authorities over deaths in custody. "He really springs to mind as driving forward this area of work in the civil liberties space," and in relation to his work concerning wrongful arrests at political protests, one interviewee highlighted that he is "fantastic with his clients, with a real ability to put them at ease, manage expectations and explain the legal process in an easy-to-understand way."

Ravi Naik is described as "a leading light in data protection," who is regularly acts on behalf of clients in high-profile cases that feature novel points of law, with a focus on data rights. He is recommended as a lawyer whose “knowledge in the area is unparalleled" and he is "a quick learner who makes complex legal matters understandable."  He is particularly noted for his "pioneering on data protection-related public law," and for impressing clients and practitioners alike by "spotting interesting emerging legal issues that will be at the forefront of litigation."
