Consultant Solicitor

Rehana joined Cognitive Law in 2022 specialising in contentious probate matters. 

Rehana is a specialist litigator that has over 10 years experience in dispute resolution. She trained in a niche Commercial and Intellectual Property firm and qualified as a solicitor in 2014. She has extensive experience on a very broad range of financial claims, ranging from debt collection, a mixture of small claims, including residential and commercial landlord and tenant disputes, through to higher value commercial, property and boundary disputes. She also has a firm grounding in employment disputes and has particular proficiency in settlement agreements and can easily guide you through the most complex legal jargon in a coherent and concise manner.

Rehana is an empathetic and friendly litigator, whose client's best interests are truly paramount to the work she undertakes.  Having successfully settled several contentious probate matters including Inheritance Act 1975 claims for both claimants and defendants, she fully appreciates the particular sensitivities and complexities of such disputes. Rehana joined Cognitive Law in 2022 to specialise her wealth of knowledge, experience and expert negotiation skills in the Contentious Probate field.

Whilst being attentive to your concerns, she will give you clear-cut advice on the merits of your matter and ultimately whether the costs of bringing a claim are proportionate to the likely outcome. Should the need for legal action arise, she will tactfully and proactively pursue your matter in order to reach an amicable, cost effective and timely conclusion.

Having utilised her analytical skills to successfully steer and negotiate early settlement of numerous complex disputes for her clients without the need to proceed with formal Court action, she holds true to the principle that Court should be the last resort.

Rehana is also fluent in Punjabi, Urdu and associated dialects. Outside of work Rehana enjoys keeping fit and unwinding by swimming, long walks and cycling. Her interests include travel, sampling foods from different cultures and spending quality time with her family and friends.
