WHAT CLIENTS SAY
I have had the pleasure knowing Sajjad for several years and have always known him to be a most competent and able barrister. However, and much to my dismay, I once found myself opposing my talented friend.
Although his good nature and sense of humour meant that this eight day trial passed in the type of amiable fashion litigators often only dream of, to be on the receiving end of his fluid, adaptable and comprehensive witness handling skills was a kind reminder as to why it is important to ensure Sajjad is acting for you rather than against you.
