Notable Cases:

Judicial review against Liverpool City Council regarding regulations against buskers (2012), SEE HERE

BMW Financial Services (GB) Ltd v Hart (2012); see HERE

Enterprise Insurance Plc v U Drive (Gibraltar) Solutions Ltd (2016); see HERE.

RE Barclay Entertainment Limited (2019), SEE HERE (obtained a winding up order against a company that was subject to a Company Voluntary Liquidation, against a strong presumption that the winding up petition should be dismissed due to the CVL).

Paula Walters v DWP (2019) SEE HERE  (My client, the Claimant was unsuccessful, but the case provides non-binding guidance that nationalism is likely to be a belief that is protected by the Equality Act 2010)

Robinson v Ramsbottom (2020) (A case heard by His Honour Judge Sephton QC, where Joseph Chiffers successfully represented a collector of rare tattooing artefacts.  Our client’s unique Christian Warlich sketchbook had been damaged by another collector).

Penny Lane Claims v Channon (2021) et al (Joseph Chiffers is successfully represented the Respondent in a High Court Appeal heard by Mr Justice Snowden.  The case was very similar to Manchester Shipping Ltd v Balfour Shipping Ltd & Anor [2020] EWHC 164, which had been heard shortly before –  SEE HERE)

Lodhia v Commissioner for the Metropolitan Police  (2022)- this case is pending at the time of writing.  The Claimant wishes to set a precedent that will use the Human Rights Act 1998 to regulate the use of the 'Released Under Investigation' scheme.  This scheme was introduced as a result of the 28 day time limit being placed on bailed suspects pursuant to the Policing and Crime Act 2007.  The RUI scheme has arguably resulted in substantial delays in offences being investigated.  A suspect who is subject to RUI has the prospect of a prosecution hanging over them, which will inevitably cause distress. 

EB v Disclosure & Barring Service [2023] UKUT 105 (AAC) -. HERE  We successfully appealed the order preventing our client from working with children or vulnerable adults.  The case concerned a difficult point of law concerning what is meant by ‘mistake’ in the particular context of a de-barring order.  The Tribunal accepted that they could make different findings of fact without finding an error in the reasoning of the DBS, although in this particular case they did find fault with the reasoning.

Charon v Barton [2023] EWHC 500 – a reported High Court case concerning the proper test for undue influence to be applied in the case of a mutual will.  

Ian English v Amicus Finance Ltd 0005 of 2023 - a case involving a demand for £9,000,000.00 and a complex point about undisclosed agency.  Mr Imiatz persuaded the Court to set aside the statutory demand.

What Our Clients Say:

"The understanding, client care and expert support afforded to myself and my wife, to reach a very satisfactory resolution to an impasse with a well known Travel Company, demands recognition.

The curtailment of a holiday, due to no fault of our own, resulted in a stressful, costly and frustrating eight months period.

During this period, after considerable time spent engaging with the Holiday Company, Travel Insurance Company and trying to seek out legal advice, we had made no progress in coming to any resolution.

After recommendation, I was introduced to Joseph Chiffers and his very capable, client focused assistant, Ellie Twist.

Calmly outlining what information was needed, and an explanation of the approach that would be taken to come to a satisfactory conclusion, immediately I felt in safe hands.

No false promises, but a very professional team that would pursue the case that I had presented.


Due to the direct engagement of Joseph Chiffers, the Holiday Company made an offer, that myself and my wife felt was reasonable and satisfied our loss of holiday disappointment. I am sure that without the help, advice and engagement of Joseph Chiffers, our dispute would not have been as satisfactorily resolved.


I would highly recommend Joseph Chiffers, Barrister at Law." - Colin Hunt

"Joseph has been fantastic in assisting me in looking at the legal options available to my company when a client refused to pay for a service provided to them. He has been incredibly fast in replying to my emails and his legal letters that he has sent on behalf of my company have been extremely detailed and comprehensive. I am extremely grateful for his assistance." ~ VK Accountancy Ltd

"We use Joseph on a direct access basis. He is a real asset to our business and knowing we can use him at any time as necessary is peace of mind. He is courteous, knowledgable, fast to respond and a really nice guy. He really helps us through the complexities of Commercial Law." ~ Cloud Enterprise Ltd

"Very approachable and accommodating. Joseph brings a clever thinking process to complex issues, offers excellent support and is unshakable under pressure. Despite facing a most formidable opponent (Mr Ben Hubble QC, "Head of 4 New Square Chambers") in the High Court, Joseph was successfully able to argue for an adjournment." ~ Udrive Solutions (Gibraltar) Ltd

"Joseph is an excellent lawyer and a person of considerable integrity." ~ Adam Heatherington
