Yasmin regularly appears in cases arising under the Consumer Credit Act 1974 and associated legislation. Such work typically involves challenges to the enforceability of credit agreements including the sale of payment protection insurance. Yasmin has drafted pleadings, acted in an advisory capacity and represented clients at trial in this respect.
After graduating from Cambridge University in Law, Yasmin went on to achieve an LLM in Corporate and Commercial Law from King’s College, London.
Yasmin’s experiences in law are multifaceted. She has spent time working as a paralegal in the Dispute Resolution department at Slaughter and May and gained considerable experience of the pre-trial preparatory stage of litigation, with particular emphasis on disclosure, in so doing. At the other end of the process, Yasmin has gained valuable knowledge working in the Court of Appeal as a judicial assistant to Lord Justice Latham and Lord Justice Sedley. These experiences enable Yasmin to effectively relate specialist knowledge as a member of a legal team that fully incorporates both professional and lay client.
