Robyn is a solicitor in our City office. She joined DPG as a trainee in January 2017 assisting Louise Whitfield and Sasha Rozansky with a wide range of complex litigation across public and private law matters. She has worked on a number of high profile cases involving claims of discrimination and breaches of the Human Rights Act.

Prior to joining DPG, Robyn worked as a paralegal at a large foundation tackling climate change and child poverty. Robyn very much values the work of charities, DDPOs, community groups and NGOs in defending and advancing human rights and works collaboratively with these organisations in order to ensure the best outcome for our clients.

Expertise

Robyn’s main area of work is in discrimination law and public law challenges. A key focus for Robyn is the advancement of the civil rights of Deaf and disabled people, and she is keen to be a supportive and useful advocate for this client group. Robyn recognises the importance of linking up with campaigns and understanding the wider strategic importance of legal challenges while delivering the right results for individual clients.

Robyn works closely with Louise Whitfield on public law challenges, including creative use of the Public Sector Equality Duty and Equality Act arguments in this context. She also works with Sasha Rozansky on asylum support and healthcare challenges.
