Ahmet successfully obtained an unless order and a strike out due to non-compliance. The client was awarded damages in the excess of £40,000 and legal costs were paid by the defendant. During this claim he successfully defended an application to set aside the Judgment and was ordered 100% of the costs of the application.

  • Acted on behalf of a claimant filing a sexual orientation claim, a wrongful dismissal claim and a victimisation claim against a multinational grocery retailer.  The claim was listed for 2 days.
