Venisha Shah Principal Lawyer, Family Law

Experience Profile

Venisha is a Principal Lawyer in the Family Law team at the Slater and Gordon branch in London. 

She has been a family lawyer for many years. She started her career in the West End of London and after working for many years in North-West and West London, she recently joined Slater and Gordon. 

Venisha specialises in family law and has particular experience in dealing with divorce and finances, children arrangements, cohabitation disputes as well helping with protective measures such as pre-nuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements.

Despite the years of experience, Venisha is constantly surprised with the strength and resilience shown by her clients when dealing with often traumatic and difficult issues in their personal lives. Venisha believes a good family lawyer needs to have empathy but also the strength of character to be firm and frank when necessary.

Venisha would describe her approach as firm and direct, yet approachable and sensitive. She believes in going the extra mile for clients. Venisha believes the key to working well with clients is have a good sense of humour, perhaps gallows humour in those challenging times for clients.
