I have acted for business owners and foreign legal firms in cross-border, commercial and contract litigation matters.
I developed a unique proposition to SME’s through my law firm, The London Law Practice, providing advice, on-going support and general counsel services to a number of businesses. The firm was recognised by the Solicitors Journal Awards for work in promoting inclusion and diversity; and by the SME Legal Awards in the commercial litigation category.
On joining Harold Benjamin in 2020, I have continued to act in complex partnership and business ownership disputes. Alongside my case work, I am involved in the firm’s business development strategy and am responsible for mentoring via the firm’s young solicitors group.
Acted for a HNW individual in defending a High Court action by a bank for breach of a facility agreement. Value circa £10m.
Acted for a foreign company in enforcing a foreign judgment through the High Court. Obtaining recovery of over £1m, as part of a claim for over £20m. Advising on enforcement options in other jurisdictions.
Acting in a number of shareholder and breach of contract matters.
A case highlight for Bhavini was acting for the Law Society where a 1930 Act was successfully used, granting The Law Society ‘Rights Against Insurers’. It was a complicated case which set new law.
