I am a barrister. I specialise in commercial and property litigation and arbitration. I am self-employed and practise from Tanfield Chambers in London, in premises adjacent to Gray’s Inn.

I provide specialist advice, drafting, and advocacy services to clients in courts and tribunals in England and internationally.

My clients say…

“Thank you Niraj for helping to achieve an excellent result. From the outset your advice was comprehensive, clear and well thought out. This laid the foundation to progress quickly and achieve the desired outcome. Should the need arise, I would have no hesitation in instructing you again or recommending your services to others.”  Client, County Court at Barnet, November 2017

“Mr Niraj Modha has represented me in a Court Case. His ‘after case’ care and attention to my needs, to see it through by advice, has been exemplary and beyond my expectations.
I can strongly recommend him to anyone who needs good personal care and attention, and needs to feel that his barrister/adviser takes the problems to heart, and is there for his client all the time.”  Client, County Court at Wandsworth, September 2017

“Thank you, Niraj, for your excellent service and support in the matter.  I am very pleased with the service. Niraj has always been approachable and replied promptly to our queries. We have had telephone conversations without having to worry about charges for every query. I enjoyed working with Niraj and will definitely be instructing him in the future.”  Solicitor, Southall, April 2017

“Niraj’s advice was exceptionally helpful – an impressive speed of response and an immediate grasp of the issues. I hope to have the opportunity to instruct him again.”  Solicitor, London, January 2017

“Niraj is approachable, helpful, prompt, very able and happy to have a chat generally without attempting to charge at every opportunity for minor exchanges. Happy with the service.”  Solicitor, Ealing, October 2016

“I have used the services of Mr Niraj Modha in a relatively difficult case. I found his dedication, patience and knowledge to be exceptional. He paid careful attention to every minor detail and used it to maximum advantage. His pleasant personality made it easy to communicate with him and I have no hesitation to seek his advice again or recommend him to other clients. Many thanks Niraj.”  Client, September 2016

“Very pleased with the knowledge and expertise of Niraj in his handling of this case. I was particularly impressed with his skeleton argument which gave a clear application of the law to the facts.”  Solicitor, St Albans/Bedford, March 2016

“Thank you for your continued assistance. Your approach to your work and your knowledge are an excellent combination. I will be sure to continue to instruct you. Our client was also incredibly happy with your advocacy at our initial hearing. Many thanks.”  Solicitor, Knightsbridge, December 2015

“Niraj is approachable, technically astute, and fearless against the opposition. I met Niraj by a chance recommendation and have used him ever since. I always enjoy working with Niraj and could not recommend him more.”  Solicitor, Wanstead, December 2015

“Very good service provided. Provided clear advice. Niraj was happy to review papers and provide input/feedback on issues outside the initial fee quote which was particularly helpful. I would certainly instruct again.”  Solicitor, Surrey, December 2015

“Niraj was well prepared and argued our case persuasively. He provided a prompt report on the proceedings… I would certainly recommend him/use him again.”  Client, County Court at Chelmsford, November 2015

“I came to Niraj via the Direct Access route, rather than through a solicitor. He was very patient in explaining to me how to prepare all the documents for the trial, and really put me at ease re what to expect on the day of the trial.
I was extremely impressed with his cross examination style. Niraj was very respectful in his questioning, yet at the same time pursued a line of questioning relentlessly until he got the answers. He kept on making sure that I felt comfortable throughout the day, which really made a difference as attending a trial is clearly a stressful matter.
I was obviously happy with the outcome of the trial, which we won.
I would certainly recommend Niraj as a very committed and talented barrister.”  Direct Access client, County Court at Watford, October 2015

“Impressed with Niraj’s approach and speedy, thorough and helpful advice.”  Solicitor, Sevenoaks, August 2015

“Mr Niraj Modha recently represented me in an application for repossession of a property and considerable arrears of rent. It was a pleasure to deal with him. Everything was very clearly explained and he was most friendly and helpful. The outcome of the hearing was successful. Highly recommended!”  Client, County Court at Hammersmith, August 2015

“Excellent advice and a pleasure to work with. I found Niraj to be very responsive, detailed and practical in his approach. Will definitely instruct again.”  Solicitor, Liverpool, August 2015

“A fairly straightforward matter (CMC in FTT) but well handled by Niraj. Helpful questions and points raised leading up to CMC and full report following the hearing. Sensible fee agreed.”  Solicitor, Bromley, July 2015

“Very good understanding of instructions and detail, good submissions, good result achieved in the circumstances of the case.”  Solicitor, Regent’s Park (London), July 2015

“Niraj was incredibly professional and kept the client at the focus of his advocacy throughout the hearing… As a result we achieved a brilliant outcome for our mutual client and he was incredibly happy with Niraj’s work. We have no negative comments whatsoever.”  Solicitor, London, June 2015

“Very pleased with the outcome and all the assistance provided.”  Solicitor, Liverpool, June 2015

“Thank you for your recent advice which was thorough and provided good direction. To date I have found you to be knowledgeable in your areas of specialism and am pleased with the levels of service provided.”  Solicitor, Stanmore, April 2015

“Niraj provided very helpful and speedy advice and prepared documentation swiftly. His advice and further discussions were easy to follow and comprehensible. I would have no hesitation in re-instructing or recommending him to others.”  Solicitor, Surrey, March 2015

“Niraj is an excellent and very efficient barrister with superb attention to client care.”  Solicitor, Twickenham, February 2015

“I was very impressed with the service Niraj provided. He was approachable and client friendly. Niraj handled our enquiries promptly, explained the possible outcomes clearly to the client and committed his time to ensure that the orders we needed were made and drawn up immediately.”  Solicitor, Central London, January 2015

“Professional, approachable, competent – what else could one wish for?”  Solicitor, South East London and Kent, January 2015

“Excellent service provided by Niraj. A very well detailed attendance note hit my inbox just after the hearing which he attended on my behalf and offered some invaluable tips for future reference. My client also said how professional, yet friendly he was. He was very welcoming of any queries and always on hand to help. A very good experience and would definitely recommend him.”  Solicitor, London, November 2014

“Niraj was instructed by us at quite short notice and did an exceptional job in understanding and putting together our case from a lengthy file. Two members of staff who attended the trial were very impressed with his defence. All in all we were very happy to have instructed Niraj and his team and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them.”  Direct Access client, County Court at Wandsworth, October 2014

“I was impressed with the time Niraj took in preparation for the hearing and the speed with which he responded to queries. His performance in court was authoritative and his cross examination in particular was thorough and searching. Whilst I hope not to have to use his services again, if I have any need to call on a barrister I would have no hesitation in instructing him and would recommend his services.”  Direct Access client, County Court at Lambeth, March 2014
