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 and civil litigation, within a range of commercial businesses from SME’s, multinationals to international organisations as well as dealing with senior executives and board members. 

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

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, including complex unfair dismissal, whistle blowing, and discrimination claims, and this has led to her client’s describing her advocacy skills as being “invaluable for a pain free victorious day in court”.  

To those involved in HR and line management she says: 

“Running my own legal practice enables me to understand the complex nature of managing employer-employee relationships. Employees can either be your biggest asset or biggest liability so effective management of staff is essential to business survival.

Therefore, I will take the time to understand your concerns and issues and will not just give you a stock, textbook answer. Additionally, I am a Mental Health First Aider, and am able to provide practical advice on supporting your employees with mental health impairments without it affecting your own mental health.

So why not let me help you through our myHR Plus service, our outsourced Employment Law and Health & Safety Service. The question that I ask all businesses is, can you afford to be without us?”
