Terrorism & National Security Barristers
We advise and represent clients at all stages of terrorism cases, including in relation to approaches by the security services, stop and search, pre-charge detention hearings and proceedings in foreign jurisdictions or international courts and tribunals.
Members of Chambers have developed a significant expertise in this area of the law over many years. Barristers from 25 Bedford Row have been involved in many of the most important, serious, complex and high-profile cases to come before the courts in England & Wales and further afield.
Our barristers have acted in landmark human rights challenges to terrorism-related executive action, such as control orders, extradition proceedings and asset freezing orders.
A number of our cases have significantly contributed to the development of domestic and European jurisprudence in this area, giving us exceptional insight to the law in this complex and sensitive area.
We work with many of the leading law firms on high profile cases, while some of our expert members also have direct access accreditation, meaning they can take instructions directly from the public where appropriate. This is often the case in international matters or at the investigation stage.
