'My job is to give individuals the power' - An interview with Martyn Day

Wednesday 13 July 2022

In this Global Insight interview, Martyn Day, co-founder of law firm Leigh Day, reflects on some of the most important cases he’s been involved in, including taking on the UK Ministry of Defence over allegations of British Army mistreatment of civilians and detainees – themes once again in the spotlight with news of SAS activity in Afghanistan. He also discusses environmental and corporate accountability issues as well as addressing the scrutiny he faced for alleged professional misconduct over handling of Iraq War Claims – allegations that were ultimately dismissed.

Day shares the human stories behind the cases and discusses his drive to hold the powerful to account, explaining why he 'enjoys the battle'.'
