Neelam’s practice focuses on criminal defence, inquests and professional discipline.

She has experience representing regulated professionals charged with criminal offences with an eye to the regulatory consequences that may follow. She has acted on behalf of medical professionals, sports professionals, teachers, and police officers.

Neelam is regularly instructed in serious multi-handed matters before the Crown Court. She was instructed to represent the first of three defendants charged with conspiracy to rob high-value watches after a professional basketball player was robbed of a Rolex at knifepoint in Knightsbridge. As led junior, she recently represented a defendant acquitted of a sophisticated conspiracy to supply Class A and B drugs involving the supply of multiple kilograms of high-purity cocaine and cannabis across the South of England. The case involved expert evidence on new “anti-surveillance” communication methods using encrypted “interceptor” handsets and “spoofing” sims.

She has been instructed in matters involving serious dishonesty and complex fraud. As led junior, she represented one of eight defendants charged with conspiracy to defraud and associated immigration offences centered around a sham Bollywood film production company. The trial at Southwark Crown Court lasted four months and involved a high volume of documentary and banking evidence. As sole junior, she represented a defendant charged with several counts of fraud by false representation in a “tinder swindler” style romance fraud.

Neelam is often instructed in sensitive cases involving young and vulnerable witnesses. She recently represented a tennis coach acquitted of assault by penetration and sexual assault of a four-year-old student. She represented a deputy headteacher of a SEN school acquitted of assaulting a severely autistic 10-year-old student after a successful submission of no case to answer.

In the area of professional discipline, Neelam has acted on behalf of medical professionals charged with dishonesty and sexual misconduct. She recently appeared in the High Court in an appeal against sanction.

Neelam is frequently instructed to represent medical professionals in inquests. She was recently instructed in a 7-day Article 2 inquest after a hospital in-patient sustained a fatal head injury while suffering from Covid-19 delirium.
