Congratulations to Phillippa Kaufmann QC who has been named in The Lawyer Hot 100 2019. Phillippa is recognised for her work taking on the Metropolitan Police in the battle between the organisation and the victims of London cab driver John Worboys and her subsequent challenge of the Parole Board’s decision to release Worboys, marking the first time it had ever been challenged, and forced to reverse, a decision to release a prisoner.
Phillippa’s expertise spans both the private and public law arena. She is equally at home in complex trials requiring mastery of large volumes of evidence and skilled cross examination as before the Administrative Court, Court of Appeal or Supreme Court arguing novel and difficult points of law.
