Practice Overview

Adil has a broad commercial chancery practice. Since joining Chambers in 2012, Adil has developed substantial experience in civil fraud, commercial, company, partnership and offshore trust disputes. Adil acts both as sole counsel and junior counsel as part of a team of barristers. Adil has been selected by Legal 500 as one of the top ten commercial barristers under eight years' call in both 2016 and 2017. He is one of a handful of juniors (and the most junior by year of call) to be recognised as a leading barrister by Who's Who Legal: UK Bar 2018 - Fraud (Civil), which ranks him as one of the three most highly regarded juniors at the English Bar in that field.

Prior to coming to the Bar, Adil qualified as a solicitor at Freshfields, where he was involved in a broad range of transactional and contentious work. During 2009 - 2010, Adil was appointed as one of the first judicial assistants to the Justices of the UK Supreme Court, where he worked for Lords Rodger and Brown.
