Shahzain Mandokhail

Advocate High Court

I have been a part of the legal profession since 2010 when I graduated with a BA-LLB (Hons.) from the Law and Policy Program at LUMS. That is also the time when I first conceived the idea of setting up a large and diverse professional services firm by this name.

In the early years of my career, I had the opportunity to work as a Research Associate (Law Clerk) at the Supreme Court of Pakistan. In 2013, I attended the University of Washington, Seattle on a Fulbright Scholarship and did a Masters degree in Asian and Comparative Law.ย  Since 2014, I have been actively practicing law in Pakistan.ย 

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to argue case in all the High Courts of Pakistan. I have concluded more that one hundred cases, many of which have been widely reported in the mass media and also culminated in reported judgments.ย  A wiki entry summarizes some of my more prominent cases. https://en.everybodywiki.com/Umer_Ijaz_Gilaniย 

Over the years, I have also been engaged for for advisory and transactional work by many institutions, especially regulatory bodies and businesses, . I have practiced in diverse areas of law; however, my principal areas of expertise are: constitutional law, regulatory law, service law, public procurement law, citizenship law and business law.ย
