Raghav is a barrister in St Philips Chambers’ Business and Property Group. He can accept instructions in all areas (advisory, drafting or court work) across the Business and Property Group.
During Raghav’s specialist commercial pupillage (which was under the valuable supervision of Marc Brown, Ali Tabari and Anthony Verduyn), he had the opportunity to assist his supervisors (and develop his legal knowledge, skills and experience) in relation to various types of commercial and chancery matters. This ranged from TUV and preference claims in insolvency proceedings, breaches of directors’ duties, freezing injunctions and property matters involving boundary disputes and restrictive covenants.
During Raghav’s second six, he had the opportunity to conduct his own case-load, ranging from advising clients in conferences and on paper on various matters including set-off in insolvency, conflict of laws and damages. He also conducted numerous hearings, ranging from summary judgments, Part 55 trespasser possessions, small claims, winding up and bankruptcy petitions. He has obtained a thorough grounding in Business and Property matters as a result.
Of significant note is Raghav’s opportunity during his second six to work as a junior with an experienced barrister on a significant company and partnership dispute which went through to the Court of Appeal. Such an opportunity so early on in Raghav’s career is testament to Raghav’s ability to work on complex and challenging matters.
Prior to joining St Philips Chambers, Raghav spent four years working as a County Court advocate for a leading national advocacy firm. During that time he conducted thousands of hearings on behalf of clients in relation to civil matters, ranging from summary judgment applications to small claims. This provided Raghav with invaluable experience in courtroom advocacy.
In his spare time, Raghav enjoys travelling, playing cricket and reading literature and philosophy.
