Tayab Ali profiled as ‘Lawyer of the Week’ in the Times Newspaper


Tayab Ali, one of ITN Solicitor's Equity Partners,  has been profiled in the Times Newspaper this week as a result of his work representing Lezley Gibson, who, along with her partner, was charged with Cannabis Cultivation.  Lezley lives with Multiple Sclerosis and had grown cannabis for medical use.

Lezley and her partner were acquitted at Carlise Crown Court on 6 January 2020.  The prosecution agreed with representations made on Lezley's behalf that it was "not in the public interest" to proceed against the pair.

Further press coverage of the case can be found here, and a previous blog post can be found here.

Counsel was Tom Wainwright of Garden Court Chambers.
