Mr Edward Taylor was extremely helpful, accessible and professional

Social Welfare client

Edward is a highly regarded member of our housing and community care team. He adopts a client-focussed approach and prides himself on making a real difference to people’s lives.

Edward has developed a niche practice acting for unaccompanied asylum seeking minors whose age is disputed by the Home Office and/or social services. He acted in the significant case of AS v Kent CC [2017] UKUT 446 and is now recognised as a leading practitioner in this area.

Edward has considerable High Court experience and also awaits decisions in two important cases in the Court of Appeal. He has also achieved success in complex possession, homelessness and disrepair cases, and was recently recognised as a “key figure” in this area by a recommendation in the Legal 500 directory.

Edward regularly represents clients with mental health difficulties and has experience working alongside the Official Solicitor and Public Trustee. He also often represents clients facing the loss of their homes at the Clerkenwell & Shoreditch County Court duty desk scheme.

Edward is a member of the Housing Law Practitioners Association (HLPA) Junior Committee. Edward also assists the careers team at the University of Law, by speaking at panel events.

In his spare time, Edward enjoys camping and travelling, if he can drag himself away from his cases!
