Dan specialises in community care, education and public law.
He obtained a degree in Social and Political Sciences from Kings College, 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. 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 that recognise him as having particular expertise in representing vulnerable young people requiring support and accommodation from social services, and in assisting families with no recourse to public funds obtain the help that they require.
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 also advises on school organisation issues including forced academies and school expansions.
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. Cases include successfully representing communities threatened by hazardous waste or large urban regenerations schemes, and a local councillor in a High Court appeal against disqualification. He recently 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.
Dan has assisted individuals with immigration problems access life-saving healthcare, and has also acted in disputes relating to NHS continuing care.
He is always happy to discuss any potential cases on an informal basis with charities, advocacy organisations or other advice agencies.
Dan is a keen swimmer, and also enjoys kayaking and cycling. He is also a school governor at his local infants school.
