Top Lawyers Back Sadiq

The Mayor of London holds one of the most influential positions in the country. London needs a Mayor who will use their role to stand up for the city, its citizens and in particular the vulnerable and take on the vested interests that seek to disadvantage us.

Sadiq Khan had a terrific reputation in the legal world. He was a lawyer who went the extra mile for his clients and was a credit to the profession we all practice. After giving up his legal career to stand for parliament in 2005, he has carved out a role as an effective advocate for the rule of law, access to justice and for universal human rights. It’s time for a Mayor who represents the very best of modern, tolerant and diverse London. We believe that person is Sadiq Khan.
