Amy Street was instructed in the case, led by Richard Gordon QC, before starting parental leave. She will return to practice later this year. Amy specialises in cases involving novel or complex points of law and was part of the winning team in the Supreme Court in Cheshire West and Chester Council v P [2014] UKSC 19; [2014] AC 896.

Alex Ruck Keene and Annabel Lee are the current juniors for the claimant in the case.
