Position

Amit practises in general commercial litigation with a strong focus on insolvency and banking. Amit has a wealth of experience in insolvency work; he is instructed on cases pre and post an insolvency procedure, including setting aside or resisting transactions at an undervalue or preference payments. He acts for individuals, companies, partnerships and insolvency practitioners. He has recently appeared in the High Court in applications seeking to cure defective out of court administration appointments, in a high value contested bankruptcy petition and numerous injunctions. Amit is also regularly instructed to act for high street banks in litigation concerning guarantees and indemnities, professional negligence and recovery of assets. Amit has been led by Ed Pepperall QC in a case regarding one of the largest fires the West Midlands has seen. He has recently appeared in a six day High Court property trial concerning constructive trusts but also involving allegations of dishonesty and forgery. He is regularly involved in cases at an early stage in order to advise (not only on merits but also on tactics), to draft documentation and explore settlement options. Amit prides himself on giving clear and practical advice, quickly absorbing complicated instructions in order to give clear bite-sized advice and sharing the workload with solicitors.
