Caroline Stone’s practice focuses on public and regulatory, employment and asset forfeiture law. Cases of note include acting as junior counsel in a 6-week ‘fitness to practise’ hearing before the General Medical Council, advising as to the legality of a European Arrest Warrant and litigation involving a national security dimension, including immigration matters.
Caroline has experience of advocacy in the High Court, County Courts and various specialist Tribunals, including the Employment Tribunal. She also has a busy advisory practice. Please see her specialist profiles for further information.
Complementing her domestic practice in public law and human rights, Caroline also has extensive experience of international law and foreign jurisdictions. Having worked at the War Crimes Chamber of the State Court of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Sarajevo) prior to joining 3PB, in 2012, Caroline was a Judicial Assistant to the Appeals Chamber of the Special Court for Sierra Leone (based in The Hague), dealing with appeals arising from the conviction of Charles Taylor, former President of Liberia.
In late 2011, as a Pegasus Scholar, Caroline undertook a 2-month secondment at the Legal Resources Centre, Cape Town, one of South Africa’s pre-eminent public-interest law clinics. Her work ranged from conducting asylum seeker and refugee appeals to advising as to the constitutionality of proposed legislation which purported to restrict access to sensitive state information and criminalise ‘whistle-blowing’ in the security sector.
Caroline’s meticulous attention to detail, pragmatic advice, personable approach and keen instinct for legal argument are among her key strengths.
Caroline was published in the 2010 and 2011 Editions of the Legal 500’s “Who’s Who in the Law”. In 2009, Caroline was nominated for a Bar Pro Bono Award for her involvement in R (Compton) v Wiltshire PCT, for which she received a special commendation from the judging panel.
