Area of Practice
I am a mediator with a background in higher education, professional discipline, and medical negligence. I also have expertise in civil liability, human rights, and judicial review.
By background I am an academic lawyer with adjudicative experience in health and education. I sit as a tribunal chair and member in disciplinary proceedings against healthcare professionals, namely, nurses and doctors. I am also an independent member of Newcastle City Council’s School Admissions Appeal Panel and a School Governor and have chaired the Disciplinary Committee. Further information can be found at the weblink.
Called to the Bar of England and Wales in 2021, I am accustomed to handling complex facts and disputes with expert opinion, as well as conducting careful analysis of evidence.
I am soon to be CMC registered (November 2023) and from January 2024, you will find me at Trinity Chambers, Newcastle Upon Tyne where I will commence a practice in civil/commercial law.
Should it be needed, I speak Gujarati and can offer cultural understanding and awareness of disputes within the South Asian/Indian community.
Those interested in choosing me as a mediator can get in touch for an initial conversation to see if my involvement will be suitable.
