Bhatt Murphy

Bhatt Murphy is a team of legal aid lawyers who work together to make a contribution to the protection of social welfare, civil liberties and access to justice. We offer specialist representation to often vulnerable members of the public who seek accountability from public authorities.

Our focus includes immigration authorities, mental health providers, social services and criminal justice agencies. A core element of our work is assisting clients to combat discrimination in all its forms. We are motivated by the needs of our clients and use the law as a tool to assist in the realisation of their objectives. We aim to deliver a high quality legal service irrespective of our client’s ability to pay.

We rely upon a collaborative style to ensure that our clients benefit from the commitment of their own individual lawyer as well as the creativity and innovation of the entire team.

The firm enjoys Band 1 ranking in the Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession (2017/2018) in all areas of the firm’s practice.

Bhatt Murphy is Lexcel accredited and is a London Living Wage employer.

At a time when access to justice is increasingly under threat, we aim to make ourselves as accessible as possible to our clients, to deliver high quality legal services to them, and to contribute to the progressive development of the law in our specialist areas.
