7BR’s police sub-group draws on the talent and expertise of established criminal, personal injury and public law/regulatory groups. We operate across the range of:

  • confiscation/asset recovery;
  • licensing;
  • inquests into deaths in custody;
  • civil actions: false imprisonment, assault, malicious prosecution, misfeasance and negligence;
  • human rights claims;
  • personal injury/workplace liability;
  • data protection and information sharing agreements;
  • acting as independent counsel on searches to consider potentially legally privileged material;
  • judicial review (both the police and police and crime commissioners).

We represent both claimants and defendants, but have a defendant bias, based primarily on a long and successful relationship with the Metropolitan Police (and other forces). Over the last decade we have represented the Met’ on a whole series of judicial review challenges brought by the late Brian Haw and other protectors to the legislative regimes covering the protest in Parliament Square. We are currently active in a series of judicial review challenges to the legality of warrants in the terrorism sphere.

We have a good working relationship with the judges at the Central London County Court – now based at the Thomas More Building – where most police jury trials are conducted. Our advocates, schooled initially at the criminal bar, have excellent trial management skills.
