I have specialised primarily in Housing Law since qualification. In particular I deal with homelessness appeals; judicial review cases; claims for disrepair; possession claims based on rent or mortgage arrears or anti-social behaviour; unlawful evictions; and general landlord and tenant disputes. I am also instructed to act in general property disputes often involving Leaseholders. I am regularly asked to commentate on recent Property Law issues by newspapers, television and radio outlets. I appeared on “Daybreak” in 2012 to discuss the implications of the proposed squatting laws. I have been a guest on “Radio 5 live” discussing a range of property issues and I also co-host “The Legal Hour with Nina and Daniel” with my colleague Nina Ali on Betar Bangla radio.
I am ranked in Chambers UK 2016 where I am described by clients as “assertive, with a fantastic knowledge of housing and property law.” I am also recognised in the Legal 500 as being “highly talented and committed”.
