Lamb Building's 'formidable immigration team' specialises in appellant and claimant-based judicial review work, with experience in asylum, nationality, and EU free movement law. A significant proportion of cases are undertaken for vulnerable clients, and the set 'genuinely cares about their clients'. Eric Fripp led Bojana Asanovic in Hussein v SSHD in the Court of Appeal. Justine Fisher acted in James Lima v SSHD, a case with wider applications as to bail conditions imposed by immigration-only powers. Sandra Akinbolu represented the appellant in OA (Nigeria) v SSHD, a case involving asylum on the basis of sexuality and medical conditions.
Lamb Building is 'a strong set in crime, with a number of strong juniors working in Sussex and the South East' from its Brighton base, and is particularly praised for being 'good at the lower end and middle order' of seniority - 'there is enough variety to cover almost every type of case and varying degree of complexity'. Ross Talbott specialises in prosecuting and defending in relation to serious sexual offences including child sexual abuse cases, as well as other matters. Both prosecuting and defending, he is praised for 'controlling and dealing with some of the most difficult and demanding defence counsel in London' and 'providing a first-class service to the instructing solicitors and defendants he represents'.
