Bryan has developed a strong rights-based approach to working with communities and individuals having practised as a solicitor for 25 years. His experience includes fighting for those in the education or community care systems, trade unions, LGBTQ+ communities, tenants, victims of industrial disease and workplace injury and activists in areas such as squatting, climate change, global injustice and hunt sabbing.
Bryan has experience of the public, private and voluntary sectors giving an insight into how organisations interact with communities and how those communities can prompt positive action and change. He also studied for an MA at Ruskin College on the International Labour and Trade Union Studies Course. Having left a formal legal practice, Bryan is interested in bringing his knowledge and experience to bear in working with communities and activists who are challenging the status quo.
As a trustee of the Public Law Project, Bryan continues to maintain an interest in challenging public authorities, particularly government in the decisions they take that impact on the rights of citizens and marginalised communities. He is also a member of the National Committee of Justice for Colombia that defends trade unionists and rights activists.
