Samira Cakali

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

Samira Cakali is a pragmatic and approachable solicitor advocate with extensive contentious and non-contentious experience in the fields of employment law as well as civil litigation, within a range of commercial businesses from SME’s to multinationals as well as senior executives (including healthcare professionals and police officers). 

She 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!

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 is an avid runner and ran the London Marathon in 2007 raising over £1,700 for ‘Get Kids Going’. She regularly participates in the ‘Race for Life’ and ran the Leeds Half Marathon in May 2012. She also enjoys the theatre, cooking, art and travelling.
