Civil liberties and human rights cases are among the most important cases before the Courts, preserving the balance of interests between individual rights and the State. Most of the leading civil liberties and human rights cases of the last decade have involved barristers from Blackstone Chambers. Blackstone Chambers is particularly noted for its ability to provide advice and advocacy in cases that develop the law and where a strategic and innovative approach is needed. The set has an almost unique mixture of expertise across traditional claimant and defendant public law, public international law, regulatory law, and commercial litigation and is able to offer lateral thinking practitioners at all levels of experience able to operate to their client’s advantage.
