Six of the best as Paragon Law goes for growth

Midlands immigration law firm Paragon Law has welcomed six new recruits across the business as demand for its services grows.

Solicitor, Shehzad Babar returns to Paragon Law after spending two years working with firms in London. He said

“I had previously worked with Paragon Law for 12 years but wanted the London experience. When the opportunity came to re-join the firm and because of the IT infrastructure that Paragon Law has invested in allowing me to be based in London, it was an offer too good to miss.” With the firm increasingly gaining instructions from new clients nationwide, Shehzad will be focusing on growing the firm’s corporate and private immigration law services from their Jermyn Street offices in London."  

Meanwhile, Cambridge University graduate, Julia Crellin joins the firm’s Human Rights and Asylum team together with Fatima Mboge who was previously a legal caseworker with the Sheffield charity Asiana and has vast experience of representing women affected by domestic abuse, forced marriage, FGM and human trafficking.

Master’s law degree graduate, Libby Birt, having worked for two years as a private client lawyer joins Paragon Law as a HR & Operations Executive and Whitney Phippard joins as a legal administrator.

Emma Robinson is recruited in the newly created marketing department following the completion of her MSc this year in Digital Marketing and through the Nottingham Trent University’s Innovation Through Productivity project.

Like firms across the nation, Paragon Law switched to remote working in March 2020, a time which incidentally coincided with new immigration laws on employing overseas skilled workers and the implications of Brexit. The Paragon Law team raised their game to such pressures and exceeded expectations, said founder and director Thal Vasishta.

He added:

“I am delighted with the firm’s progress. We continue to demonstrate that we are at the forefront of diversity and inclusion both in terms of the make-up of our team and the clients we represent. However, the growth that we have achieved could not have taken place without the support of our clients and external partners.”
