Profile

Amit has a strong commercial and chancery practice with a heavy emphasis on contentious insolvency (corporate insolvency, LLPs, partnerships and bankruptcy), commercial disputes, company law (including directors’ duties, shareholder disputes and unfair prejudice petitions), company directors’ disqualification proceedings and bank recovery proceedings (charges, mortgages, guarantees and indemnities). He has considerable experience of directors’ disqualification proceedings, having been appointed to the Attorney General’s CDDA provincial B Panel. He frequently represents the Secretary of State and directors.

Amit has a strong following of solicitors and lay clients that will always choose him for their work. He prides himself on giving clear and practical advice, quickly absorbing complicated instructions in order to give clear bite-sized advice whilst sharing the workload with his instructing solicitors. Amit is regarded as being user-friendly and accessible.

He has been led by silks and senior juniors, who have found him not only a pleasure to work with but also able to give a fresh view and add value. He has also appeared against silks as sole counsel.

Amit has a knack of being instructed by high profile clients who include an ex-England footballer, a current Spanish footballer, a well-known hypnotist, a bankrupt ex-director of one of the largest personal injury firms (which eventually went into liquidation) and a member of a popular 90s boyband.

For several years Amit has ranked as a leading junior for his Restructuring and Insolvency and Commercial Litigation.

Amit is fluent in Hindi and has a working knowledge of Panjabi. In his spare time he enjoys watching cricket, playing badminton, swimming, snowboarding and the theatre.
