About us: Our People
Dan specialises in community care, education and public law.
He obtained a degree in Social and Political Sciences from Cambridge University, and worked for a grassroots campaigning organisation before converting to law. He qualified in 2004, following a training contract with Clifford Chance, which included time on secondment to Liberty.
He joined Maxwell Gillott in 2010 from Fisher Meredith LLP, where he had worked as a solicitor in their public services law department. In July 2012 Dan was made an Associate and in July 2014 he was made a Partner. He previously worked as an in-house solicitor for a large London borough for two years, giving him a valuable insight into how local authorities operate, and before that for Public Interest Lawyers in Birmingham.
Dan undertakes a full range of adult and children's community care matters. He regularly works with leading charities and organisations that recognise him as having particular expertise in representing vulnerable young people requiring support and accommodation from social services, and in assisting people who lack capacity. He also has experience in helping victims of trafficking and domestic violence obtain the support that they are entitled to from local authorities.
Dan represents parents across the full range of education law issues undertaken by the firm, including special educational needs, exclusions, admissions and children out of school. He has experience representing parents with children in both the state and private sector. He also advises on school organisation issues including forced academies and school expansions.
Public Law and Human Rights
Running throughout Dan's work is the creative use of the mechanism of judicial review to safeguard the rights of individuals and communities from unlawful decisions by public authorities. He acted in a case which led to the withdrawal of a London local authority's eligibility criteria for children's services, and is happy to discuss broader policy based challenges with charities and other organisations.
Outside of the Office
Dan is a keen swimmer, and also enjoys kayaking and cycling. He is also a school governor at his local infants school.
