Danish’s biggest strength is building an excellent rapport with clients.  He prides himself in thorough preparation for every case and providing objective analysis.

Danish approaches each case with an appreciation of the significant impact the outcome will have in the lives of the lay parties involved; he aims to provide representation with a sound understanding of the emotional needs of the client in order that they feel that their case was advanced in the manner that they would want.

Danish delivers clear and robust advice in often difficult circumstances but is unafraid to fight a difficult case when instructed to do so.

Danish represents local authorities, lay parties, and guardians in cases brought under the Children Act 1989.  His practice of representing parties across the spectrum helps Danish provide a carefully considered approach to all cases.  He has notable experience in cases involving non-accidental injury, sexual abuse, fabricated and induced injury, emotional and psychological abuse, mental health difficulties, alcohol and drug misuse, and domestic violence.

Danish also has a busy practice in proceedings for financial relief under the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973 and has experience in cases dealing with cases involving assets in other jurisdictions.  Equally, Danish enjoys a healthy practice in applications brought under the Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996.  Danish accepts instructions for written advice as well as drafting pleadings.

Danish brings a wealth of knowledge to his practice because he lived in two separate jurisdictions before moving to the United Kingdom to study for his undergraduate degree.   This background has cultivated a natural interest in cases involving other jurisdictions, including child abduction cases involving Brussels II (Revised) and the Hague Convention.  Danish has a particular interest in applications for Forced Marriage Protection Orders and Female Genital Mutilation Orders, having advised and represented local authorities and police authorities in making applications as well as representing respondents to such applications.

Danish regularly appears at all levels of the Family Court, including the Family Division of the High Court and has experience in the Court of Appeal.

Danish has a paperless practice and requests an electronic bundle in all cases.

Danish’s practice is predominantly in the North West but he also accepts instructions for cases in London.  He is certified to accept instructions through Direct Access.
