Why did you choose the law?

I wanted to pursue a career in law from a very early age. I cannot actually remember what prompted me to do so but I am a big believer in fairness and justice so it was only right for me to choose the path I have.

Tell us a bit about how you got here…

I carried out my law degree at the University of Leicester and completed my LPC at Nottingham Law School. I carried out my training contract at a firm in London and qualified as a solicitor in 2014. I am now an Associate here at Band Hatton Button and have extensive experience in litigation and dispute resolution.

What does your day job look like?

My caseload is extremely varied as I am experienced in and practice a range of different litigation based matters. I could be working on a complex commercial landlord and tenant matter one moment before then moving on to an insolvency related matter to then dealing with a contract dispute. To put this into perspective, my areas of practice are, but not limited to, the following:

  • Contract disputes;
  • Property litigation matters such as commercial landlord and tenant disputes, forfeiture, possession, dilapidations and service charge disputes;
  • Corporate and personal insolvency matters such as winding up proceedings, bankruptcy, administration and receivership, claims in liquidations and directors’ disqualification proceedings;
  • Construction/building disputes;
  • Debt recovery;
  • Intellectual property matters such as copyright infringement and passing off;
  • Defamation and breach of privacy claims;
  • Planning and licensing; and
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes.

I also advise on immigration compliance requirements and procedures for visas and leave to remain applications.

My career highlights to date include successfully representing a former CEO of a premier league football club in a breach of privacy claim and successfully defending various company directors who were the subject of disqualification proceedings (I have a very niche specialism in this area).

I pride myself on my ability to provide a fast, cost-effective and pragmatic service to clients. I am always prepared to go the extra mile for clients and I am dedicated, efficient and hard working.

What do you like to do outside of work?

I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I am also an amateur Bollywood dancer and have featured in several famous Bollywood films!
