Ali Tabari

Barrister and mediator, St Philips Chambers
Ali is a well-established leading junior, consistently ranked in the legal directories since 2014 and described variously as “a highly skilled and persuasive advocate”, “exceptional on his feet.”, “very incisive”, “a pleasure to deal with”, “very approachable, responsive and friendly”, and “absolutely fantastic”. He has a busy and thriving commercial practice focussing on heavy commercial litigation involving fraud, insolvency and finance aspects. His experience in those fields also leads to instructions in professional liability cases involving solicitors, accountants, IFAs and surveyors.

He regularly appears in lengthy trials in the High Court, and has been instructed alone in the Court of Appeal several times. He has recently been a led junior in cases variously concerning large-scale breaches of warranty, defective share sale agreements, fraudulent trading by a company director, and civil orders resulting from the largest-ever successful prosecution by the Serious Fraud Office.

Ali is an accredited civil/commercial mediator through ADR Group, and uses those skills when instructed as the advocate in mediations. His sensible and considered approach has also led to instructions as an independent investigator for private companies requiring findings of fact and determinations of internal disputes.
