Deighton Pierce Glynn Solicitors

Deighton Pierce Glynn is one of the leading civil rights and judicial review law firms in the UK with a national reputation.

Operating from offices in the City of London, London Bridge and Bristol, we have nine core areas of practice in the areas of public interest law. We employ some of the very best solicitors in the UK working in those practice areas.

We are adept at conducting high-profile test cases and related campaigning work for individuals and organisations, including many of the leading charities and NGOs working in the sector. We are equally committed to conducting less high-profile but no less important work for our clients, including cases which are highly confidential. We have acted in numerous leading cases up to and including the Supreme Court as well as the European Court of Human Rights.

Recent cases in the news include the civil partnership case, pension rights for cohabiting partners, challenging prison policy for families of prisoners who committed suicide in prison, acting for Anti-Slavery International in Court of Appeal case about trafficking, acting in a case challenging healthcare charges to destitute migrants, acting for National Aids Trust about the funding of the HIV prevention drug PrEP.

Offering a high level of client care is an essential part of how we work. We are renowned for our commitment to our clients and for our skilful and determined use of the law to achieve their objectives. As a result we receive excellent client feedback, so much so that most of our work now comes from word-of-mouth referrals whether from former clients, the NGOs and charities we work with, or from other lawyers.

Our reputation for excellence is recognised year-on-year by the Chambers and Legal 500 independent directories who obtain confidential feedback from our clients, those we work with and with our opponents.

Our trainees work on a wide range of important cases from day one and you will get the chance to collaborate with the very best legal minds in social welfare law in the country.
