Nadesh joined QEB Hollis Whiteman in September 2015 for an 18 month pupillage.
During his first six months Nadesh assisted his pupil supervisor, Jocelyn Ledward (Treasury Counsel), in the preparation of a number of serious and complex cases. Among them were: a multi handed gang related murder; a money laundering case involving a family of four defendants heard at the Old Bailey; a case concerning perverting the course of justice following a murder; and an Attorney General Reference to the Court of Appeal. Nadesh has also gained experience in relation to domestic violence cases having assisted his supervisor in the review of several cases for a CPS London Scrutiny Panel.
Nadesh also regularly assists other members of Chambers with legal research and the preparation of cases on a diverse range of topics. This has included regulatory matters, criminal cases, an inquest and an inquiry. Of particular note, he has assisted members of Chambers with the following: the Heathrow 13 protest case; a regulatory law appeal due to be heard by the Supreme Court; one of the LIBOR trials and an Inquest into the death of a soldier in Afghanistan as a result of friendly fire. Nadesh also acted as a noting junior to Sarah Plaschkes QC (now HHJ Plaschkes QC) for the entirety of a murder trial which took place at the Old Bailey.
Nadesh accepts instructions in all areas of Chambers’ work.
Prior to joining Chambers, Nadesh spent some time assisting Mr Justice Hickinbottom at the Royal Courts of Justice. This involved legal research and helping with the drafting of judgments in cases being heard in the High Court (Queens Bench Division and the Divisional Court) and the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division). Consequently, Nadesh has a broad range of experience in criminal law and beyond.
Further, Nadesh worked as an arbitrator at the Parking on Private Land Appeals Service adjudicating private parking disputes. He adjudicated almost 2,000 cases. As a result Nadesh has developed particular experience in this area.
Nadesh has also undertaken pro bono work with the City Law School Civil Advice Clinic and FRU.
