Its unusual to identify Human Rights in a list of areas of legal practice.
At Rubicon Chambers however we feel very passionate about the work that Michael Bott has provided over the years to his clients, many of whom are disadvantaged, where the legal system has previously failed to provide real justice.
Michael has been standing up for his clients, whether that is in the context of human rights matters, criminal law, parole proceedings or civil disputes. He fights for his clients without fear or favour.
Michael has been a member of the NZ Council of Civil Liberties, and served at an executive level, for 11 years.
