Heather Williams QC represents prominent anti-fracking campaigner challenging multinational firm Ineos in the High Court today

Heather Williams QC today represents environmental campaigner Joseph Boyd in his High Court challenge to the unprecedentedly wide-sweeping injunctions granted at an earlier ‘without notice’ hearing to Ineos, the largest owner of shale gas licenses in the UK.  Heather will argue that the injunctions are wrong in law and infringe rights guaranteed by Articles 10 and 11 of the European Convention on Human Rights in suppressing legitimate anti-fracking protest.  For further information see The Guardian here.  Heather is leading Blinne Ni Ghralaigh of Matrix Chambers and they are instructed by Rosa Curling of Leigh Day, solicitors, see here
