Practice Summary

Having been awarded Inner Temple’s Pegasus Trust Scholarship, Salmaan is currently on secondment at Rajah & Tann in Singapore. He is due to return to Chambers in October 2019, and accepts instructions in all areas of Chambers’ work.

 

Prior to coming to the Bar Salmaan worked as a Tax Associate at PwC. He joined Chambers in 2018 upon successful completion of his pupillage, under the supervision of Toby Vanhegan, Justin Bates, Jonathan Manning, and Annette Cafferkey. During pupillage he gained exposure to the full spectrum of property law including possession proceedings and defences relating to public law, the Human Rights Act, the Equality Act and the Children Act; freehold covenants; leasehold disputes; disrepair claims; homelessness appeals; licensing; and injunctions. He now regularly appears for landlords and tenants alike in all manner of proceedings.

 

On a recent secondment to the property litigation team at Gowling WLG, Salmaan acted for a number of institutional investors in connection with their business tenancies under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954, and with issues relating to insolvency. He regularly advised on the interpretation and validity of notices: including statutory notices, notices for which there exist prescribed forms, and contractual notices such as those served pursuant to a break clause in a lease or CVA.

 

Salmaan was previously engaged by the Housing Ombudsman to review complaints made by tenants against their landlords, and to produce reasoned decisions along with orders of compensation where appropriate. Salmaan was also selected to be a member of Dame Linda Dobbs Review team which is working to determine whether the Lloyds Banking Group sufficiently investigated and appropriately reported issues relating to the HBOS Reading fraud.

 

Outside of work, Salmaan can be often be found on his allotment thinking up new ways of getting his chickens to lay more eggs. He has an interest in the history of art and previously worked at The National Gallery in London.
