Since his call to the Bar in 2010, Sahar has amassed experience in advising clients across a range of sectors including aviation, energy, infrastructure/ projects and shareholder disputes.
Sahar’s expertise is in advising and representing HNWIs, privately owned companies as well as state entities facing disputes arising, typically, from breach of contract. He is particularly familiar with disputes that have a cross boarder element and in the context of International Arbitration, under multiple rules and seats including ICC, LCIA, SIAC and AIAC. In the immediate past, he led the Pakistan and Malaysia desks of an international law firm, two jurisdictions where he enjoys particularly strong local networks.
A robust and pragmatic advocate, clients cite his disarming style of cross examination and tactically sound advice.
