Dominic Preston

Dominic Preston is the deputy team leader of Doughty Street's Housing and Social Welfare Team and practices in all aspects of housing law and related disciplines.

Although Dominic's practice is centred on homelessness, allocations and disputes concerning residential premises, whether rented or leasehold, it necessarily strays into immigration law, community care and child care law, EU law, discrimination law, and human rights law. He appears regularly in the lower courts, the High Court and the appellate courts.

Dominic is recognised as a leading junior in social housing by Chambers and Partners which recommends him 'for his technical ability and excellent judgment, as well as his straightforward and easy manner (2012) and comments that ''¦ his sharp mind and impressive workload were both highlighted by peers ... (2011). He is also listed in Legal 500.

Dominic's commitment to the need to secure housing for the most vulnerable is reflected in his practice and he has been on the executive of the Housing Law Practitioner's Association since 2004.
