Your Team

 

Between us we have decades of experience and as Theodore Roosevelt said:

“The more you know about the past, the better prepared you are for the future”

 

Fairman Harris in its current form was established in April 2016 however our original firm Fairman Law was established in 1985.

 

One of the founding partners of Fairman Law, Fateh Ramji, still works with us today as a consultant so we can draw upon a wealth of experience.  His specialisms include tax investigations, insolvency and IVA’s.

 

Fairman Law has had various other partners along the way including Nizar Walli (who passed away in 2002) and Ike Mawji who remains a partner of the practice today.

 

Ike has been with the practice since its inception in 1985 and specialises in supporting small companies grow to their full potential and more recently, in probate matters.

In 2006, Fahreen Meghani joined the practice, having qualified with KPMG and bringing with her significant experience in company and charity audits as well as corporate tax.  Fahreen’s focus in the practice is on corporate tax planning, restructures and other complex tax matters.

In 2010 we purchased a further practice, N Harris & Co, based in Clapham and established over 50 years at that time.  Shortly after, Shafiq Meghani joined the practice as partner bringing with him a wealth of knowledge in general tax but his key asset being his exposure in banking.  This allows Shafiq the significant upper hand of blending accounts with a strong commercial understanding, demonstrating that business is more than just the numbers.  He specialises in virtual FD services, IHT planning and EIS/SEIS companies.

This combined with our strong belief in lifelong learning is what allows us to support you and your business to achieve your goals.

Lifelong learning to us means a self motivated pursuit of knowledge to enhance the service we can offer our clients to make sure you reach your full potential and break through the glass ceiling.
