Letter protesting against ministers attacks on lawyers


Following remarks made by the Prime Minister and Home Secretary about "lefty lawyers" who defend migrants and an alleged racist attack at a firm of immigration lawyers, the following letter was sent to the Guardian which a number of Partners at our firm are signatories of:


"We are all deeply concerned at recent attacks, made by the Home Secretary and echoed by the Prime Minister, on lawyers seeking to hold the government to the law.


Such attacks endanger not only the personal safety of lawyers and others working for the justice system, as has recently been vividly seen; they undermine the rule of law which ministers and lawyers alike are duty bound to uphold.


We invite both the Home Secretary and the Prime Minister to behave honourably by apologising for their display of hostility, and to refrain from such attacks in the future."
