General Information

Ragi is a very experienced practitioner, having amassed a varied background of legal expertise in the areas of civil, commercial and general common law. Ragi is a robust lawyer with a tenacious attitude. He is a confident Advocate that prides himself on working hard to achieve successful outcomes for his clients.

In addition to Ragi’s general litigation work, he is also licensed to undertake public access instructions on behalf of regulatory bodies and individuals, alike. Ragi represents both Claimants and Defendants and is prepared to consider CFA work on a case by case basis. Ragi regularly deals with numerous repeat clients on this funding arrangement.

Ragi is always prepared to travel and go that extra mile to assist his clients nationwide. Ragi is based in Cardiff, but regularly travels to London and the Midlands to attend hearings for those instructing him.

Professional Regulation

In addition to his busy civil practice, Ragi is working hard to develop a greater practice in the field of professional regulatory and disciplinary law. He is happy to advise and represent clients before a wide range of regulatory bodies, including the healthcare sector and legal profession.

Interestingly, Ragi has also designed, developed and delivered legal training materials on behalf of the British University in Dubai. Ragi believes that these overseas experiences have allowed him the opportunity to pursue a worthy sabbatical from practice.

Speaking fluent Arabic, Ragi’s bilingual skills have an added advantage when dealing with clients from the Middle East and Gulf region.

Additionally, Ragi undertakes numerous pro bono cases by representing both immigration clients at appeal and Defendants who have been issued with possession proceedings against their homes. Ragi always reassures his clients that he will fight every inch of the way to attain the best possible result on their behalf. With that knowledge, they have faith in Ragi's ability to represent them at the highest level.

To unwind over the weekend, Ragi likes to delve into the kitchen to cook new signature meals for the family. For recreation, Ragi enjoys the theatre and watching a good movie to escape the seriousness of the law. He also likes swimming to relax and recharge after a long day!
