Profile

Niri Shan

Description

Niri Shan has been described as a ‘polished operator’ by a contemporary, and one can see why. ‘It’s my USP,’ he tells Spear’s, ‘I try to deal with things in a low-key, collaborative way – we’re not super-aggressive in our approach.’

The Taylor Wessing partner, who works in the firm’s ‘strategic partner’ team advising both claimants and defendants, describes an instance when he resolved a particularly salacious allegation involving high-profile individuals ‘through one letter and a series of phone calls’.

‘I got 30 articles taken down,’ he says, adding that his dual advisory role means he has long-standing relationships with the lawyers working for media companies.
