Shahram Sharghy will help lead the association’s 4,000-strong membership in working to improve the law for those made ill or injured through no fault of their own.

“I believe strongly that claimant lawyers should speak with one voice when it comes to dispelling the myths associated with personal injury,” said Shahram.

He added:“APIL is an essential and powerful voice and I will utilise my skills and passion to stand up for claimants and their legal representatives when it comes to access to justice.”
