Two rising Public Law stars join Doughty Street Chambers

Doughty Street Chambers is delighted to welcome barristers Adam Straw and Jude Bunting, who join from Tooks Chambers.  Adam and Jude are exceptionally talented and they will further strengthen the Public Law team, which Chambers and Partners 2013 describes as “at the coalface of claimant-focused public law [with] very dynamic barristers who forge ahead at the cutting edge of the law.”


Adam Straw (2004 call) practices in public law and human rights, including in the areas of inquests, prison, crime, mental health, community care, social welfare and discrimination law.  He is recommended by both the Legal 500 and Chambers and Partners directories, which describe him as “incredibly bright and a pleasure to work with” and “very good at spotting novel points of law which push the envelope.”  He was winner of the Young Barrister of the Year award in the 2010 Legal Aid Lawyer of the Year Awards.


Jude Bunting (2006 call) is a human rights, equality and public law specialist. He is also recommended by Chambers & Partners, earmarked as "definitely one to watch," who "will rise to the top phenomenally quickly." He is commended for providing "absolutely tremendous advice and great attention to detail".


Chief Executive Robin Jackson says, “Doughty Street Chambers’ Public Law team goes from strength to strength. We regularly challenge the State in the highest courts on its treatment of vulnerable and disenfranchised individuals.  It is tremendous to have recruited two real up-and-coming stars in the public law world, to join our existing stellar collection and further this vital work.”
