Bhavini Kalaria

Partner

I have acted for business owners and foreign legal firms in cross-border, commercial and contract litigation matters. Over the last 8 years I have also developed a unique proposition to SME’s through my law firm, The London Law Practice, providing advice, on-going support and general counsel services to a number of businesses. The firm was recognised by the Solicitors Journal Awards for work in promoting inclusion and diversity; and by the SME Legal Awards in the commercial litigation category.

My clients have said that I am “Helpful, Friendly & Knowledgeable” and “Prompt, Professional and Perfect.”

I trained as a solicitor with Simmons & Simmons. I qualified in 2004, and moved to Russell-Cooke Solicitors. I started The London Law Practice in 2011, which I ran until 2019. I have joined Harold Benjamin as a Partner in January 2020.
