Bimal Kotecha

Bimal qualified as a solicitor advocate, with higher rights of audience in civil litigation, in 2012. After working at a boutique litigation law firm in Middle Temple, London, Bimal joined Grant Saw in 2016.

Bimal specialises in a multitude of property related disputes such as property co-ownership disputes, property related negligence claims, landlord & tenant disputes, lease renewals, dilapidations claims, trespass, party wall matters and boundary disputes.

He has considerable experience in contentious insolvency matters and is regularly instructed by insolvency practitioners and former directors of companies. Bimal’s areas of expertise include representing clients in winding-up petitions, bankruptcy petitions, directors’ disqualification proceedings and misfeasance and antecedent transaction claims

Bimal has a keen interest in contractual disputes and commercial litigation alongside tax disputes and defending clients accused of white collar crime offences, such as fraud, tax evasion and prosecutions brought by Trading Standards.

Bimal frequently assists clients in contentious probate matters which range from advising on claims under the Inheritance (Provision for Family Dependants) Act 1975 to challenging the validity of wills. His particular expertise lies in testators lacking capacity or being unduly influenced by friends/family. His extensive knowledge of the ACTAPS code regularly leads to cases being settled without court intervention.

His tenacious approach to his cases has resulted in success against large institutions and government departments such as financial services institutions (major banks and insurance companies), Her Majesty’s Revenue & Customs, the Home Office, the Insolvency Service, Trading Standards departments as well as the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS).

Bimal’s recent work includes:

  • Successfully setting aside a statutory demand which resulted in the petitioner paying for the client’s costs;
  • Successfully defending a client whose family members sought beneficial entitlement to a portfolio of properties owned by him.
  • Regularly obtaining residential possession orders for clients seeking to evict their tenants, usually without the need for a hearing;
  • Successfully defending a misfeasance claim valued at £250,000 brought by a liquidator, by demonstrating that a former director acted reasonably and honestly.
  • Obtaining a favourable outcome for a Landlord in respect of a dilapidations claim;

Bimal’s interests include travelling, movies, sport, and socialising with friends and family.
