Mohamed Sheikh

Solicitor

Work and Clients

Mohamed is a solicitor in the Private Client department and advises on Wills, Probate and Lasting Powers of Attorney, as well as Court of Protection matters. He is looking to train in handling contentious Probate cases in the very near future.

Route to Slade Legal

Mohamed graduated with an LLB (Hons) Law degree from the University of Essex before gaining his Legal Practice Course qualification from the Oxford Institute for Legal Practice. Prior to joining Slade Legal in 2016, Mohamed worked as a criminal prosecutor for eight years. He is known to have a few interesting stories up his sleeve from his time as a prosecuting advocate.

Mohamed originally spent half of his training contract seconded to Slade Legal. The first six months of training were spent in the Private Client department, supervised by William Cowan and the remaining six working in the Commercial and Litigation departments under the supervision of David Hodson and Tim Healy respectively. It was a fruitful arrangement for everyone involved as Mohamed came to learn about how to deal with a large variety of civil matters during the course of his secondment.

During that time, Mohamed had considerable admiration for Slade Legal’s consummate professionalism with clients and staff alike. As a result, he did not hesitate to return to the company when the opportunity presented itself.

Why Mohamed became a lawyer

From a very young age, Mohamed wanted to be in a profession which helped its clients through difficult times, whilst at the same time challenging him to solve stressful problems on their behalf. Being a lawyer caters to this passion in a very real and immediate way, seeing as legal complexities can be very stressful for anybody.
