Siân Mirchandani QC has established a broad commercial practice encompassing construction/engineering, professional liability claims, insurance and disciplinary claims in court proceedings, arbitrations and adjudications.

Siân has a particular interest in disputes involving construction, IT, technical and scientific elements and this has led to a strong construction/engineering practice and wide ranging experience in regulatory and experimental product testing claims.

Prior to her successful first application for silk in 2018, Siân was recognised as a Leading Junior by the directories for Construction, Professional Negligence and Disciplinary.

In Legal 500, 2019 Siân is described by her clients as “an excellent advocate – tenacious and extremely detailed, identifying potential problems and arguments even before they arise” and “tremendously bright, has a tenacious eye for detail, and brings a new level of strategic thinking to the table”.

In Chambers & Partners, 2019, Siân has been commended for her approach to her cases: “She is very competent and thorough and hits the right points in the right places”, “extremely responsive wherever she is and whatever the time zone. She has a very reassuring demeanour that instils confidence all round”, “proactive, helpful” and “someone who prepares the case very well”.

Winner of Chambers & Partners ‘Professional Negligence Junior of the Year‘ 2015.

Clients have described Siân as having “a sharp mind and excellent attention to detail”, and reported that “she is excellent – very pleasant to deal with and extremely robust and effective for her clients.” and “a very effective, hard-working practitioner with an eye for detail and the ability to present a highly persuasive argument” and “The great thing about her is that on every occasion her advice is strong, firm and consistent, which allows us to get an excellent settlement.” and “Very bright, robust, dedicated and thorough”.
