I became a solicitor to make a difference. Giving thousands of consumers a voice through our collective actions, shows large corporations that they're not above the law.
Get to know Kiran
I am a solicitor in the collective actions department and I currently work on the Volkswagen emissions collective action, which is one of the UK’s largest ever group actions before the High Court.
As a solicitor, I want to do meaningful work and hold companies to account and show that they are not above the law. That's why I chose to work at Slater and Gordon, having been at the firm for over six years. I qualified as a solicitor in April 2018, following the completion of my training contract which included seats in the employment and medical negligence departments.
Prior to working on the Volkswagen emissions collective action, I represented various SME clients on matters in relation to the mis-selling of complex financial products against national retail banks, and claims involving the mis-selling of pension investment schemes on behalf of consumers.
Acting on behalf of over 70,000 claimants against a multinational automotive manufacturer in an action commonly known as the VW NOx emission collective action, which is one of the largest and most high-profile collective actions in the High Court.
Another highlight of mine was working on the trial and preparation for appeal of a leading claim in relation to the mis-selling of complex structured derivatives, Crestsign Limited v National Westminster Bank Plc and The Royal Bank of Scotland .
The extra mile
I'm a member of The Law Society Junior Lawyers Division as well as a member of the London Solicitors Litigation Association.
