The panel of City firms, set up in 1994, takes test case referrals from human rights organisation Liberty. Other members include Allen & Overy, Clifford Chance and Richards Butler. Stephen Pollard, partner at Kingsley Napley, said: “I believe Liberty deserves the full support of the legal profession. Having investigated a number of miscarriages of justice cases for Liberty, we know how important their work is and are pleased to be able to contribute to it.”
