Anirudh has a busy personal injury practice, and is frequently instructed to attend fast-track trials and interim hearings. He has been praised by judges for his ‘able’ and ‘well-judged’ submissions. His practice includes claims against public authorities, holiday and travel claims, injuries arising out of sporting accidents and more. Examples of recent cases include:

Police Law and Human Rights
Before commencing pupillage, Anirudh volunteered as an independent custody visitor. In this role, he was trained to identify breaches of the PACE regulations. During his training, Anirudh gained experience of calculating damages for breaches of the ECHR in respect of psychiatric harm and drafting submissions on the applicability of Article 2 in an inquest.
