9 Gough Chambers
Shahram is one of the most capable and outstanding Juniors at the Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence Bar. He leads 9 Gough Chambers ever growing and successful Clinical Negligence team, ranked by Chambers and Partner, which comprises no fewer than 5 Silks and over 30 Juniors. His practise in this field, as well as Personal Injury, consists exclusively of high value and complex claims. He has an unrivalled work ethic and thrives on dealing with complex issues of liability and causation, just as much as evaluating claims and drafting multi-million pound Schedules of Loss.
Shahram’s approach is very much client focused and results driven. He brings formidable intellect, energy and drive to any case to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved for a client. He is seen as a 'safe pair of hands' and a calming and confidence-building influence on clients and instructing solicitors alike. He has built his reputation and success on accepting difficult and challenging cases, but is equally efficient and effective dealing with the more straight-forward claims.
He is highly regarded by clients and solicitors for his direct and hands-on approach, and is much respected by Judges for his sensible and effective approach to interlocutory and trial advocacy. Shahram is able to quickly grasp and process complex issues of fact, evidence and law in order to skilfully construct cogent arguments in a charming and persuasive manner.
Shahram is currently engaged in a number of claims with a value in excess of £50 million, some of which he is being led by Silks within and outside Chambers and others he is leading Juniors in Chambers.
In addition to his Personal Injury and Clinical Negligence practice, Shahram also undertakes High Court Enforcement work acting almost exclusively on behalf of High Court Enforcement Officers (HCEOs). He was the first barrister to be retained by one of the largest firm of HCEOs in the UK to act, via Direct Access, as their lead advocate for all High Court Enforcement proceedings.
