Work Department

Immigration & asylum
Public law


Natalie practises in asylum, immigration and nationality, family, housing and public law.

Natalie’s multidisciplinary practice allows her to offer crossover advice in her practice areas, in particular family and immigration law. She also incorporates ongoing specialist learning into how domestic violence, mental health, trauma and/or neurodivergence impact her clients’ interaction with the justice system into all her work.

Natalie’s legal studies focused on human rights and international law, especially the relationship with armed conflict and its effects. After working internationally for the United Nations and NGOs in conflict-related contexts, she decided to return to the UK to qualify as a barrister. Natalie’s experience in countries with weak rule of law and how that affects the lives of individuals makes her especially committed to helping to preserve the precious access to justice we retain in the UK and she remains committed to help those affected by conflict and human rights violations internationality through her refugee law practice.


Natalie has contributed to Macdonald’s Immigration Law and Practice Chapters 5 (common travel area, crew members and exempted groups) in the 10th edition and 9th edition supplements and Chapter 9 (students) of the 9th edition, and Chapter 13 (immigration law) of Patterson & Karim on Judical Review (3rd edition). She is a visiting lecturer at the University of Law in Manchester.
