Welcome to nexus chambers
Nexus Chambers works with and for people who have been marginalised, discriminated against and victimised by the actions of people irrespective of their position in life. We want to work with people to support their campaigning and turn their campaigning into a legal remedy which can compensate them, expose who is at fault and bring them to justice.
We recognise that the world we live in is one where there are deep social divisions. People face discrimination in a number of forms including but by no means limited to their class, race, gender and sexual orientation. People are also discriminated against and victimised because they can’t speak out, or they are isolated or they are surrounded by a system which does not allow them to have a voice. If you want us to we can and will speak for you and work with you to a find a way through to a hard won legal solution.
Nexus as an entity and our members as practice groups and individuals are committed to challenging and redressing inequality. This takes many forms both in terms of our members’ professional practices and their activities and pursuits outside of chambers.
Some of the ongoing work involving our members includes:
- The Novichok Inquiry announced in November 2021.
- Ongoing campaigning with survivors, bereaved families and friends of those affected by the 2017 Grenfell Tower fire. Representing participants at the Grenfell Tower Inquiry and working at a grassroots level with community organisations that are seeking to effect change.
- Working with campaigners who are seeking to expose those who killed so many hundreds of people at the Gosport Hospital. This ongoing work we believe will lead to the exposure of a discriminator.
- The Infected Blood Scandal leading to the Infected Blood Inquiry where many Haemophiliacs were killed by the very treatment that the Medical profession used to treat their Haemophilia.
- Successfully campaigning with Post Masters on behalf of the victims of the Post Office Scandal to establish the Post Office Inquiry and the ongoing campaign to seek financial redress from the Post Office and the Government.
- Working as part of the Black Lives Matter movement and the Black Lives Matter protests of 2020. We have seen the disproportionate impact that the COVID 19 pandemic has had on specific communities which are examples that highlight the inequalities that exist. Moreover, discrimination can manifest itself in multiple and interconnected ways.
- Successfully campaigning with Survivors of Sexual Abuse for years to establish what became the Independent Inquiry Into Child Sexual Abuse.
- Representing core participants in the Undercover Policing Inquiry set up in 2015 to consider the circumstances in which a number of individual campaigns and organisations were subjected to in the decades since the late 1960s.
- In 2021 Michael Mansfield KC worked on the establishment of Peoples inquiries, notably one that focused on the government’s handling of the Covid 19 pandemic.
