Megan Smith


Megan is a solicitor in our London office who joined Deighton Pierce Glynn in July 2023. Prior to joining DPG, Megan worked at the Good Law Practice on strategic litigation against the UK Government. Before that, she ran the anti-torture NGO REDRESS’ legal and policy work on the use of international human rights sanctions. Megan qualified as a solicitor in the Public Law and Policy team at Hogan Lovells International LLP.


Megan helps individuals to use the law to challenge decisions that violate their rights and seek accountability, and to ensure that public bodies take decisions in line with their legal obligations. Megan has experience of complex judicial review litigation, and her caseload currently focuses on public law challenges within the context of asylum support. She represents clients in a variety of challenges, including in relation to the inadequacy of asylum accommodation, the failure to provide asylum support, unlawful age assessments, and the obligations of local authorities as owed to asylum seekers.

Megan is also a supervisor for the firms’ PAP Project assisting NGOs challenging Government decisions.
