We are very pleased to have recently welcomed Chamali Fernando to our team of experienced consultant solicitors.
Chamali has over 17 years’ experience as a UK barrister and is a licensed attorney in New York USA. She has represented a broad portfolio of clients from Heads of State to some of the most vulnerable in our society, across several disciplines.
She has handled a varied caseload including complex commercial disputes involving fraud and insolvency litigation, often with an international focus and multimillion-pound civil litigation.
Chamali holds significant management experience and versatile leadership skills as a former Head of Legal for a regional law firm and has previously established her own set of Chambers. She has also undertaken short-term contracts for the United Nations and advised the government of Sri Lanka.
Following a commercial pupillage at One Essex Court in London at the Chambers of Rt.Hon. Sir Tony Baldry MP, Chamali was awarded an exemption from the General Council of the Bar to move into employed practice as a barrister working in solicitors firms exercising full rights of audience and later established her own set of Chambers.
Chamali plays netball competitively twice weekly, enjoys international cuisine, politics and going to the theatre.
