Any views expressed here – or on my social networks – are mine alone, and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employer, or any associations to which I belong.
In terms of my background, I qualified as a solicitor in 2010 and practised in business defence, regulatory law, criminal and civil litigation, and professional conduct. I was a founding member of the Midlands Asian Lawyers Association and served as President of the Leicestershire Junior Lawyers Division.
Between 2015 and 2021 I worked at the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). I investigated serious allegations and incidents involving the police, such as deaths in custody. I was also elected as head of the staff association, and I led a national team across seven offices, working to protect jobs and solve employment disputes.
I have undertaken many years of public service, notably as a Leicester city councillor, as a school governor, as a charity trustee, and as a board member of the Leicestershire Police Authority – where I led efforts to save 200 policing jobs.
I believe in the ideals and institutions of our democracy and I am proud of Britain’s values and traditions. Throughout my legal, regulatory, and political careers I have worked to uphold the rule of law and challenge corruption and extremism, as well as scrutinise power, solve problems, and save jobs.
