Govinder is a specialist insolvency and commercial practitioner. He joined Chambers in October 2020 after the successful completion of his specialist insolvency and commercial pupillage under the supervision of Stefan Ramel and Simon Passfield.
His practice spans advisory, advocacy, and drafting work at all stages of proceedings. He regularly appears in the County Court and has appeared in the High Court on a number of occasions. Govinder has also been led by senior counsel in more complex and substantial disputes.
The work ethic, thoroughness and attention to detail which he brings to a case is valued by clients.
Govinder has recently returned from an 8-month secondment with an international law firm where he assisted and represented a major lender on unfair relationship claims brought under the Consumer Credit Act 1974. As well as gaining practical experience in this area of law, the time he spent working in-house enables him to appreciate the pressures which solicitors involved in this type of litigation are under. Govinder continues to be instructed regularly by said law firm as well as other leading firms in the banking and financial services sphere.
Before joining Guildhall Chambers, he graduated with a first-class degree in law and came top of his year in his masters degree (International Business, Corporate and Finance Law, Distinction). Before receiving an Exhibition Award from the Inner Temple, he was a paralegal in a solicitor’s firm which specialised in commercial and insolvency law. He assisted on matters involving breach of directors’ duties and preference/undervalue claims. The time he spent working there enables him to appreciate the importance of teamwork between counsel and solicitors.
