Introduction

Introduction

Aysha completed her pupillage at a leading family law set in 2012 and joined 33 Bedford Row in 2013. 

Aysha is a skilled advocate who has well over a decade's legal experience. Prior to coming to the Bar, Aysha worked in a solicitor's firm and a legal advice centre which has given her a firm foundation in her legal career. 

Although Aysha has commenced her life at the Bar as a family specialist she has expertise beyond core family areas. This wide ranging experience allows her to provide cross-disciplinary representation and advice.   

Aysha also undertakes civil cases in the areas of Housing and Property law. Aysha often appears at the Bankruptcy Court in London.   

Aysha's testimonials include a comment by a senior circuit judge that Aysha was “thoroughly prepared, succinct, clear, well-reasoned and had the case at her finger-tips”.  

Most recently in November 2017 another judge described Aysha’s drafting as “impeccable”
