Barrister Shahram Sharghy joins Just as their in-house counsel to bring big changes to the High Court enforcement industry

03 February 2020

Barrister seeks to challenge the enforcement industry with Just.

Just, the enforcement market integrator launched by Arum just a few months ago, has appointed Shahram Sharghy as their in-house barrister as they continue to take on and challenge a number of industry issues, including the confusion of who is responsible for the VAT on High court enforcement fees. Shahram has been retained to represent the company in their attempts to create a step-change in the amount of people that use High Court enforcement as a safe and accessible means of getting justice. 

Shahram is one of the most capable and outstanding barristers in the field of enforcement. He has 20 years of experience and expertise in this area of law and has been at the forefront of some of the most pioneering developments concerning High Court enforcement. He regularly appears in the High Court in relation to a wide variety of enforcement matters and has been involved in some of the most important reported cases in recent years concerning High Court Enforcement Officers and Organisations. His work often encompasses significant and complex matters of statutory construction and commercial dealings between debtors, creditors and High Court Enforcement Officers.

Shahram commented on joining Just, “I am delighted to be joining the Just team as their in-house counsel via Direct Professional Access. I very much look forward to helping Just continue their innovative and professional approach in the area of enforcement, whilst adhering to the highest professional and industry standards".

Jamie Waller, Just’s Founder and Chairman commented, “It is vital for us to have access to the best people in the industry as we take on the challenges of creating a High Court enforcement integrator that is intelligent, safe and accessible. In our first few months we have taken on difficult industry issues and worked with a number of expert barristers and advisors and Shahram was one of them. His understanding of High Court enforcement and the practical implementation of the regulations impressed me from day one and I am delighted to have him join us, as one of the team. I look forward to taking on other industry challenges and building Just to be the chosen solution for all post litigation enforcement over the coming years”.
