FIGHTING FOR VICTIMS' RIGHTS

“I’m a prosecutor at heart, I’m a judgmental person by birth. Perhaps that is why it is so important to me to expose wrongdoers. In 2016 I decided that to establish a new legal group that began with Guernica 37 in London, the first mission-driven UK Barristers’ Chambers dedicated exclusively to international and transnational legal work to fill the void of accountability and give victims a real voice."
