BUSINESS LAW BARRISTER TAHIR ASHRAF WINS LAWYER MONTHLY LEGAL AWARDS 2016
Business Law Barrister Tahir Ashraf Wins Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2016
Business Law News: As part of my news, I am delighted to announce that I have received more recognition this year, as a commercial barrister, than ever before, especially by winning the prestigious Lawyer Monthly Legal Awards 2016.
“I am absolutely delighted to be named the Commerce And Business Barrister of the Year 2016 by the Lawyer Monthly”.
BUSINESS LAW REVIEW – SOLICTORS AND LAY CLIENTS
I specialise in working with solicitors and industry clients including SME companies, entrepreneurs, owner-managed businesses and those in the energy oil and gas sectors. In addition to work on some of the most cutting-edge technological-developments, particularly those harnessing hydrogen, I am developing an interest in aircraft related matters.
In my legal advisory and commercial litigation practice I advise and represent in often complex multiparty cases. These are often of a national and international nature. The most recent case was a construction dispute. It concerned a contractor insolvency and professional negligence. The case also raised questions on the liability of independent contractors and vicarious liability of an employer. To make matters even more challenging there was also the question of standing on the part of my clients and first registration of land. The question of adverse possession also had to be visited. My involvement came when the case had become a long running dispute, on-going since September 2009.
I was fortunate enough to have been specifically sought out by the Instructing Solicitors and the clients. My involvement led to a settlement, just before trial. Needless to say, to the satisfaction of my clients. This has led to my being the recipient of excellent business law reviews and of course, to winning legal industry awards.
BRITISH BUSINESS LAW BARRISTER – GLOBAL REACH
I am often instructed by solicitors, high net worth individuals and SME companies. I also advise on business and partnership disputes concerning musicians, singers and former band members. As a litigator, I take a pragmatic yet robust approach to arbitration, alternative dispute resolution (ADR) and litigation. Alongside my commercial litigation work, advising on and drafting contracts has become second nature.
BUSINESS LAW – PUBLIC SPEAKING
Earlier in the year, I was also invited as an expert-public-speaker at the Royal Automobile Club in February 2016. The invitation was to deliver a speech to in-house-counsel, solicitors and barristers. In light of the VW emissions scandal, the focus of the speech was on transport vehicle emissions in the UK and Europe. I have also written articles on the role of bond finance and green bonds in tackling climate change through infrastructure investment for international cities. Recently, I have been instructed to intervene in the Brexit case in the UK Supreme Court. I am also instructed to appear in cases concerning state immunity and ‘commercial activity’ on British soil.
