Public Law

Gideon has a varied practice in public and human rights law.

He regularly advises and represents government departments across a range of issues including prison-related claims, privacy and data protection issues, discrimination, malicious prosecution and misfeasance in public office.

Gideon’s public law practice also touches on other areas including tax and inquests and inquiries. For example, he appeared as junior counsel in the Court of Appeal in the judicial review case of Coroner for the Birmingham Inquests (1974) v Hambleton and others [2018] EWCA Civ 2081.

Gideon has been instructed on immigration judicial review claims, unlawful detention, claims relating to discrimination in prisons and articles 2, 3 and 8 ECHR matters. He has worked claims against the police and claims involving breaches of confidentiality, privacy and data protection. Gideon is keen to expand his practice across a range of public law matters, spanning prisons, data protection / cybersecurity and tax.

He has added to a wealth of experience gained during pupillage in which Gideon assisted in judicial review claims in respect of deaths in custody, immigration appeals and a number of article 8 challenges. He also worked on group litigation touching on private and public international law, conflict of laws, jurisdictional disputes and claims for breaches of A1P1 in environmental law.

He is appointed to the Attorney General’s C Panel of Civil Counsel.
