Amrit has been an accredited Civil and Commercial Mediator since 2016 and joined 4-5 Gray’s Inn Square as a third-six pupil in October 2018, following the successful completion of her pupillage at a civil and commercial set of Chambers in London.
She accepts instructions in all of Chambers’ main practice areas.
Prior to joining the Bar, Amrit worked for UBS as a Regulatory Business Analyst both in New York and London and for Barclays in London. Amrit worked with significant financial regulations such as, Dodd Frank and the European Market Infrastructure Regulation. Amrit is interested in the interplay between law and finance, and has developed a good degree of understanding of the workings of the financial industry.
Immediately before pupillage, Amrit worked with Mr Justice Picken in the High Court of Justice (Commercial Court), where she assisted with drafting, legal research and was able to develop a deep understanding of complex commercial litigation.
Amrit is a member of the Attorney General’s Junior Junior panel, and is currently involved in a disclosure review relating to the Grenfell Inquiry. She is also currently involved in the Dame Linda Dobbs Review considering whether issues relating to HBOS Reading were investigated and appropriately reported to authorities following Lloyd Banking Group’s acquisition of HBOS.
Amrit is an avid reader, travel enthusiast and amateur photographer with a particular interest in Wildlife Photography. When not in Court or Chambers, she can be found behind a camera lens.
Amrit’s insolvency practice covers both corporate and personal insolvency proceedings, in which she advises and acts on behalf of both debtors and creditors in the County Court and Insolvency and Companies Court on a wide range of matters. Amrit has experience in dealing with bankruptcy and winding up petitions and related applications such as, applications to set aside bankruptcy orders and statutory demands, injunctions to restrain the presentation of winding up petitions, applications for validation orders, and applications to rescind winding up orders.
Amrit regularly volunteers with the City Law School’s Company Insolvency Scheme, which offers pro bono advice and/or representation to companies attending the winding up court. Amrit assists unrepresented companies on the day of their hearings and in doing so, has been able to develop a strength for providing practical and commercial advice efficiently. Amrit has been instrumental in transitioning the scheme from in-person to online, as a result of COVID-19, which has caused winding up hearings to be dealt with entirely online. Her efforts have ensured that unrepresented companies continue to obtain much needed access to legal advice and representation. Amrit also provides training to City Law School Bar course students about the procedure and practicalities of Insolvency and Company Court hearings and has acted as a judge in mock hearings.
