The managing partner of Pinsent Curtis' London office, Graeme Brister, has been elected as a director of the Institute for Citizenship Studies, a body that promotes the constitutional rights of UK citizens.
Brister said the issue of individual rights was becoming increasingly important in UK law. "This is why we want to be involved," he said. "For both selfish and altruistic reasons."
Brister, who would welcome a UK Bill of Rights, said that as a senior member of Pinsents, his support for the institute's concerns about the ordinary citizen would set a good example to the firm's younger solicitors. He added that Pinsents was also extremely keen to be closely involved in what it saw as a "blossoming" area of the law.
"Our firm can contribute to the debate and influence the direction of the institute," he said.
