Yasmin Daswani

Associate

I specialise in commercial and business disputes with a focus on private wealth disputes. This includes work in the court of protection, will disputes, group litigation, disputes arising out of commercial contracts and mediation.

About

I like to solve problems for clients and to feel like I am helping them resolve any issues that they have. The litigation process can be stressful and I want to make the process easier for clients to navigate by being pragmatic and commercial, with a focus on resolving the dispute as quickly and as painlessly as possible.

I specialise in commercial disputes, private wealth disputes and alternative dispute resolution including mediation. My practice also covers more general commercial litigation work, including breach of contract, debt claims and misrepresentation claims.

I have advised a wide spectrum of clients, including banks, entrepreneurs, high net worth individuals, and corporates operating in a range of industries.

Outside of work, I am an international cricketer (playing for Hong Kong). I am passionate about increasing opportunities for women in sports and have a website/ Instagram page called “Associate Women in Cricket” – check it out!
