I specialise in property and commercial litigation and arbitration. I am self-employed and practise from Tanfield Chambers in London, in premises adjacent to Gray’s Inn.

I provide specialist advice, drafting, and advocacy services to clients in courts and tribunals in England and internationally.

My direct access clients have said:

“I have used the services of Mr Niraj Modha in a relatively difficult case. I found his dedication, patience and knowledge to be exceptional. He paid careful attention to every minor detail and used it to maximum advantage. His pleasant personality made it easy to communicate with him and I have no hesitation to seek his advice again or recommend him to other clients. Many thanks Niraj.” Direct Access client, County Court at Wandsworth, September 2016

“I came to Niraj via the Direct Access route, rather than through a solicitor. He was very patient in explaining to me how to prepare all the documents for the trial, and really put me at ease re what to expect on the day of the trial.
I was extremely impressed with his cross examination style. Niraj was very respectful in his questioning, yet at the same time pursued a line of questioning relentlessly until he got the answers. He kept on making sure that I felt comfortable throughout the day, which really made a difference as attending a trial is clearly a stressful matter.
I was obviously happy with the outcome of the trial, which we won.
I would certainly recommend Niraj as a very committed and talented barrister.” Direct Access client, County Court at Watford, October 2015

“Niraj was instructed by us at quite short notice and did an exceptional job in understanding and putting together our case from a lengthy file. Two members of staff who attended the trial were very impressed with his defence. All in all we were very happy to have instructed Niraj and his team and would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them.” Direct Access client, County Court at Wandsworth, October 2014

“I was impressed with the time Niraj took in preparation for the hearing and the speed with which he responded to queries. His performance in court was authoritative and his cross examination in particular was thorough and searching. Whilst I hope not to have to use his services again, if I have any need to call on a barrister I would have no hesitation in instructing him and would recommend his services.” Direct Access client, County Court at Lambeth, March 2014
