Howe+Co historic case in the Guardian

Howe+Co’s landmark campaign for the rights of Gurkhas has been referenced by the Guardian in a piece that discusses milestone legal aid cases.

The article comments on Gurkhas alongside the Stephen Lawrence case, the Hillsborough victims and Daniel Roque Hall in its analysis of the importance of legal aid. It mentions that Howe+Co used legal aid to challenge a policy at the high court resulting in Gurkha veterans being given the right to settle in the UK. The article further explains how legal aid has not been available since April 2013 for immigration cases not involving detention or asylum.
