Call: 2014

At Old Square Chambers "barristers are approachable, reasonable and practical, with those same qualities being instilled in the clerks."

Chambers & Partners 2018

Old Square Chambers houses "true experts in employment law," who are "quite simply brilliant."

The Legal 500 2017


Darshan has a broad practice across all areas of chambers’ expertise, with a particular focus on Employment and Personal Injury.

Darshan regularly appears in employment tribunals and civil courts. This builds on his considerable advocacy experience from prior to pupillage, when he attended over 850 hearings as a County Court Advocate. He is also especially sensitive to the pressures faced by professional clients, having been spent time on secondment as in-house counsel within a large solicitors’ firm.
