Jamil joined Simpson Millar in 2016 as a Paralegal, and all his work to date has been in our Holiday Claims department.
He started his Training Contract in October 2020.
Jamil joined us after studying for three years towards his Law degree at the University of Salford, during which he moved to Spain to continue his studies and complete his LLB Law degree.
He spent a year at the Colegio Universitario Cardenal Cisneros in Madrid, becoming fluent in Spanish and proficient in Bulgarian in the process. He made some great friends in this time, and as a result has connections in Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Hungary, Germany, Mexico and Turkey among other countries.
Jamil deals with Holiday Claims for clients who have suffered from an accident or illness on holiday. He is skilled in dealing with Direct Right of Action claims and claims under the Package Travel Regulations, Montreal convention and Athens convention. As well as his main duties, Jamil also helps claimants affected by other travel claims arising from a breach of contract.
His expertise covers Travel Law and Personal Injury Claims.
Interests outside of work
