Actions Against Police & Public Bodies

How can we help?

Many people find themselves a victim of an abuse of police power but challenging the conduct of the police and other public bodies can often seem a daunting task. The GN Law Actions against the Police & Public Bodies team exists to help you defend your rights and seek redress for any infringement.

We will fight your corner; we will listen; we will believe and we have expertise and understanding to guide you through the process.

We  provide advice and representation in the following areas:

  • Assault claims against police, prison staff, security guards, etc
  • Wrongful arrest & False imprisonment claims
  • Malicious prosecution claims
  • Human Rights Act claims
  • Misfeasance claims
  • Trespass claims
  • Data Protection Act claims
  • Breach of confidence/misuse of private information claims
  • Complaints against the police
  • Discrimination claims
  • Historic abuse claims
  • Inquests
  • Judicial Review

How does it work?

Most of the work we do in this area is funded by Legal Aid but can we also offer ‘No win, no fee’ (Conditional Fee) agreements and Damages Based Agreements in appropriate cases.
