Samira Cakali

Managing Director, Solicitor Advocate LLB (Hons), Higher Rights (Civil)

Samira Cakali is a client focused, commercial solicitor who takes the ‘pain away’ from her clients when dealing with a dispute. She has extensive employment law and dispute resolution experience, having worked with a range of commercial businesses from SME’s to multinationals as well as senior executives.

She has over 10 years experience and founded the firm in Leeds in 2011 because she wanted to provide clients with high quality legal advice, on time, on budget and in a personal and supportive manner. The experience she gained in both a national and regional law practice enables her to do just that!

She has a particular interest in discrimination and mental health and is an accredited Mental Health First Aider. 

Samira is quick to grasp complex legal issues and this has led to her client’s describing her advocacy skills as being “invaluable for a pain free victorious day in court”.  

Her communication skills are further enhanced by her linguistic skills; she speaks fluent Urdu, French and is currently learning Turkish. 

To owner-managers she says:  “running my own legal practice enables me to understand the daily trials and tribulations for commercial businesses. So I always put together cost effective packages to enable owner-managers to protect their business, an example of this is myHR Plus, our outsourced HR & Employment Law Service. The question that I ask all businesses is, can you afford to be without us?” 

Samira is a member of the Leeds Law Society, Employment Lawyers Association (ELA) and Yorkshire and Humber Tribunal Users Group. She also undertakes pro bono work with the ELA and Leeds Community Enterprise (ELSIE for short).

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and two young children and, when time permits, running. To date, she has achieved completing the London Marathon in 2007 and raising over £1,700 for “Get Kids Going” and regularily participates in local races.
