Adil is undertaking a commercial pupillage under the supervision of Daniel Metcalfe. Adil has completed his first six months of pupillage and is now available to accept instructions. 

Since beginning his second six, Adil has been instructed in a wide range of contractual disputes, PPI mis-selling and unfair relationship claims, winding up petitions, possession orders and data protection cases. Adil is adept at witness handling, both in conference and court, and his ability to navigate sensitive hearings both for and against litigants-in-person has been praised by judges and opponents.

Adil regularly provides written advice on matters of contractual dispute including misrepresentation and breach of contract and is thorough in his exploration of potential causes of actions. Adil routinely drafts statements of case in cases concerning consumer law and various contractual disputes. Adil prides himself in his communication with clients and ensures that they are kept informed at all stages of litigation.

Adil recently assisted David Berkley KC and Steven McGarry in a multi-million-pound fraud case in the High Court and in an application for an urgent freezing injunction.

In addition to a commercial practice, Adil has advised and drafted statements of case in probate disputes and trusts. Adil has assisted Elis Gomer in chancery cases and is growing his practice in this area.

Adil is currently assisting Joseph O’Brien KC on a judicial review matter relating to a harbour authority ordinance and has been praised in his ability to navigate a complex limitation argument and forensic research on the substantial merits. Adil is keen to grow his public law practice with a special focus on constitutional matters.

Before commencing pupillage, Adil participated in various national and international mooting competitions and was highly ranked consistently. Adil also worked with victims of human trafficking through the award-winning Liverpool Law Clinic Anti-Human Trafficking project in 2019-2020. He managed case files as well as translated for Urdu-speaking clients.
