Charles da Silva
I qualified as a barrister in 1983 when I was a member of Lincoln’s Inn. I subsequently qualified as a solicitor in 1989 and proceeded to co-found Harris da Silva solicitors. In 2017 I represented Connie Yates and Chris Gard as they fought for the right to try life-saving treatment for their son, Charlie. I’m delighted to support Charlie’s parents as a trustee for The Charlie Gard Foundation, and look forward to the future of this innovative and pioneering new charity that will be honouring Charlie’s memory. His legacy will live forever.
