Tanya Seevaratnam, Partner


Tanya specialises in general commercial litigation and resolving business disputes, and joined us in 2011.

She has a 100% success rate at trial. For instance, she acted for a minority shareholder in a dispute about the sale of shares, both in the first instance and at the Court of Appeal. The client recovered 90% of the indemnity costs awarded, and was “very happy” with her service.

Tanya honed her civil litigation and advocacy skills at a firm based opposite the Royal Courts of Justice, so she was often in Court every day – and still is. After completing her Law Society Final Exams, she took a gap year travelling around the world before taking a job at a niche litigation and law firm.

She gained her law degree at the University of Manchester, and has a Diploma in Advanced Litigation from Nottingham Law School. She is involved with the Association of Business Recovery Professionals.

Her message to clients is: “With Summit, you get the same service as a big City firm but at lower cost. The amount of preparation we do and the level of expertise we have contributes to our high success rate.”

Quirky fact

Tanya volunteers with a charity called Contact The Elderly. As a result, she has appeared on TV twice, including an episode when she had tea with Jonathan Ross.
