We are extremely proud that David Chirico is recognised in the 2019 edition of Chambers and Partners as a ‘Star Individual’, described as “very committed, thorough, to the point and robust. He goes out of his way for his clients and is highly approachable.”

“What really stands out is his humanity: above everything else he is very interested in the client and what is best for them.”

The 2019 edition of Chambers and Partners has also ranked One Pump Court’s Immigration team. The guide applauds the team’s “strong bench of barristers” and ethics led approach.

One Pump Court barristers ranked in Immigration are:

Ranjiv Khubber is described as “always tak(ing) the time to talk through the case in detail and share the benefit of his experience, including providing guidance on procedure rules. He is incredibly generous with his time.”

Parosha Chandran works extensively with victims of trafficking and other vulnerable individuals in a range of human rights cases. Her exceptional experience has also led to her advising the likes of the UK government and the UN, and she has recently been elected the first ever Professor of Modern Slavery at Kings College London.

Alex Burrett is recognised as a “respected junior who acts in cases concerning deprivation of citizenship, children’s rights and deportation”.

Gilda Kiai is described as “a sought-after immigration barrister who is lauded for her work with vulnerable individuals, particularly victims of trafficking, sexual violence and FGM”.

Victoria Laughton is also ranked, and described as “very passionate in her approach to her work. She never gives up a case and is a fighter who is very impressive in court.”

Catherine Robinson’s expertise is commended – “her knowledge of the law and her ability to analyse the details of the cases are exceptional.”

In Social Housing, Martin Hodgson is recognised as  “a nice, pragmatic and realistic opponent to have,” while  Nicholas Nicol “has excellent drafting skills and displays good attention to detail. His commitment to representing the vulnerable is there for all to see.”

Patricia Tueje is described as being “excellent with vulnerable clients, she is calm under pressure and can be relied upon.”

The clerks at One Pump Court, under senior clerk Ian Burrow, are noted as “responsive, flexible and accommodating”.

Congratulations to all for your exceptional work.
