Lunch with the FT: the barrister reflects on what it's been like to represent the WikiLeaks founder. She's been the longest-serving lawyer for Julian Assange — whose extradition to the US was blocked by a London court early this month — and was also recently involved in representing Amber Heard in the Johnny Depp libel trial that took place in 2020. Talking to Jane Croft from the Financial Times, she charts the evolution of Assange's case through the last ten years and expresses her dismay at the vitriol Heard continues to face today because of the trial.
