Shahram undertakes instructions on behalf of Claimant’s and insurers in the three core areas of Chambers practise namely, Personal Injury, Clinical Negligence and Professional Negligence.

Shahram is able to quickly grasp complex issues of fact, evidence, and law and skilfully construct cogent and persuasive arguments to advance his case. It is little wonder that he is seen as a rising star at the Junior Bar.
