Position

David practises predominantly in immigration and employment law, whilst maintaining an interest in general civil litigation. In immigration and asylum he regularly appears before both the First Tier and Upper Tribunal’s as well as the Court of Appeal, which recently described his oral advocacy as displaying ‘great skill but also economy’. David also has extensive experience in the Administrative Court, primarily through judicial review challenges to fresh claim applications and unlawful detention. David’s recent case load has seen his involvement in a string of public law challenges to the UKBA’s removal of a number of educational institutions from the sponsorship register. David has a particular interest in claims seeking recompense from the Home Office for maladministration, and represented the claimants in the Court of Appeal case of Home Office v Mohammed and others (B2/2010/2331). As well as lecturing extensively on new developments in this rapidly changing field, David is also approved by the Law Society and acts as an assessor on the Immigration and Asylum Accreditation Scheme, for solicitors and legal representatives. In employment David works in the fields of racial and sexual discrimination, unfair dismissal, working time regulations and unlawful deduction of wages, both for claimants and respondents. As well as appearing at Tribunal and Employment Appeal Tribunal levels, David also works in an advisory capacity, for private clients, local authorities, trade unions, and law centres. He has a particular interest in the increasingly complex interrelationship between immigration and employment law.
