Matrix is rated as one of the top chambers for human rights and civil liberties work (Chambers & Partners 2013 and Legal 500 2012). It has become the go-to set for all civil liberties and human rights work. Chambers & Partners 2013 comments "...there is no doubt they are leaders in this area", members routinely appear in landmark cases in national and international courts.
Human rights law occupies a central position in the collective expertise offered by its members. This is brought to bear in the many other practice areas in which members specialise - from crime, to commercial law, to immigration, to public law and employment.
Matrix members with in-depth expertise in all of these areas have been at the forefront of most of the groundbreaking human rights cases of recent years. In addition to extensive experience of domestic litigation, members have represented clients before regional and international human rights tribunals, including the United Nations Human Rights Committee and the American Commission and Court of Human Rights. Several members appear regularly before the Privy Council in constitutional appeals arising in death penalty cases from the Caribbean.
