Harun is a Londoner who has studied, qualified and practised here. As a trainee, he found a great interest in Criminal Law whilst undertaking work to assist the Solicitors on the well-known Baby P case.
Once he qualified, Harun was not only instructed in other high profile cases such as a complex multi-million pound Fraud against O2 the network provider and the M1 arson case, causing more than £4million of damage, but also developed a working knowledge of Extradition laws and has continued pursuing this.
A couple of years later, Harun was approached to join a specialist Extradition team in another London firm. He has, over time, become a well-known face at the Westminster Magistrates Court, which is the only court in England and Wales which deals with serious and complex Extradition matters.
