I am an enthusiastic, reliable, organised and positive team member, working as a litigation executive in the personal injury team, dealing with a diverse range of clients.
Get to know Syed
After studying LLB (Hons) Law at Liverpool John Moores University, I completed the Post-Graduate Certificate in Education, Post-Compulsory.
Thereon, I completed the CILEX Graduate Fast-Track Course. I am currently a member of CILEX and in the process of qualifying as a chartered legal executive.
The skills and expertise I have obtained, as a lecturer and litigation executive, are clearly fundamental and essential to my role at Slater and Gordon Lawyers. I specialise in significant and serious injury cases, having settled cases in excess of £1 million.
I place a high emphasis on the benefit and value of early intervention and rehabilitation to help maximise an injured person’s recovery. I have a professional yet robust approach with opponents, ensuring that necessary steps are taken to make sure that my client’s needs are met. However, I am adaptable to any change and keen to promote a collaborative approach with my opponents to secure access to rehabilitation and treatment, ensuring that interim payments are secured to ease the financial burden being suffered by my client.
When I arrived in London, I suffered a bad accident after a few days in the city. I didn't knw what my options were nor who to approach for legal advice, and I came across Slater and Gordon. Syed took care of me since the very beginning and made me feel safe and understood. Not once have I felt like I wasn't in capable hands for the 3 excruciating years it took to get justice, thanks to Syed, Zoe and their team's incredible work. I couldn't recommend them enough, and will forever be thankful for everything they've done for me. Client testimonial (for Syed Shah)
