He is a Solicitor-Advocate being one of a minority of solicitors who are qualified with the same rights of audience as barristers in High Court proceedings.
Rajat worked for a number of regional and international law firms before founding Metis in 2009.
Rajat advises parties on complex disputes that arise when relationships breakdown across industrial, commercial, property and media sectors. His technically robust and aggressive style has earned him a unique reputation as the “go-to guy” for help when dispute resolution has snowballed or stalled, confidence has been lost, and results are needed. He is regularly instructed in preference to national or London ‘magic’ firms. In some cases, Rajat has been specifically brought in by companies to oversee dispute resolution currently being conducted on their behalf by city firms.
He is widely known being the lawyer regularly instructed by new clients after having first acted against them.
