Bindmans’ leading public law and human rights department has welcomed two new senior lawyers – partner Jules Carey who now heads the firm’s police misconduct team and Jamie Potter, who joins as an associate.
Jamie was previously a senior associate in leading City firm Hogan Lovells’ EU & UK public law and policy team, and brings a wealth of experience across all facets of public law, in particular, in respect of corporate and regulatory public law work. His areas of expertise include judicial review, human rights, freedom of information, Parliamentary practice and procedure, public policy and public procurement.
Chambers UK has recognised Jamie as an Associate to Watch in respect of administrative and public law (commercial and regulated industries) for both 2013 and 2014 having received ‘rave reviews from clients’, who have described him as ‘truly fantastic’ and ‘pragmatic and smart at the same time’.
John Halford, joint head of the public law and human rights team commented: ‘We are delighted that Jamie has joined us. He forged a path as a leading public law practitioner in the City, and the expertise he brings will complement and strengthen the exceptional service Bindmans provides all of its clients.’
Jules Carey, formerly a partner at Tuckers Solicitors, specialises in complex claims for false imprisonment, assault, malicious prosecution, discrimination, deaths in custody and judicial review. He has considerable experience in challenging over-zealous and pre-emptive policing operations and obtaining redress for those affected.
Jules’ Chambers ranking for the last two years in police law is ‘Star Individual’.
Jules said: ‘Bindmans has a long and proud tradition of challenging injustice and protecting the freedoms of ordinary people. I am greatly looking forward to working alongside some of the country’s best human rights lawyers to ensure that this excellent tradition is carried forward.’
