She is able to think “outside the box” and make legal arguments that may not have been considered previously, thereby setting a precedent for other cases.

Shivani has represented clients before the Supreme Court and Court of Appeal as well as at First Tier and Upper Tribunal level. Her ability to convince a judge or tribunal of the merits of complex cases is unrivalled. She is a firm believer in the rights of every asylum seeker or migrant to be heard and she will fight to convince the Court to take into account all the applicant’s circumstances before reaching its decision. She has a track record of preventing deportations via Judicial Review and has been succeessful in getting deportees taken off flights at the last minute.

More recently, Shivani has represented clients involved in disciplinary proceedings where their livelihoods are threatened by allegations of professional misconduct. This includes BSB, SRA, GMC and NMC cases.

Shivani has often appeared in the media in relation to Human Rights issues such as being asked to analyse the leaked draft of the Counter Terrorism Act in Sri Lanka and its consequences for Tamils.
