About Sheetul

My focus is to ensure that my clients who are facing issues at work or with their regulators come out of these complex and challenging processes with their future prospects and reputation intact.

With a specialist background in litigation, Sheetul is able to provide concurrent advice on employment and regulatory issues affecting her clients.

She acts for a range of clients from lay individuals, regulated professionals and businesses on contentious and non-contentious matters. She has vast experience advising NHS professionals and workers in the health and care sector.

Sheetul's clients often instruct her on issues of misconduct, competence, dishonesty, fraud, harassment, discrimination, and reputation management.

She is often instructed to act on highly sensitive and high-profile matters which could result in career ending consequences if not resolved effectively.

Sheetul is a visiting lecturer at Westminster University.

Sheetul Sowdagur is extremely hardworking, makes herself available, and is client focused.
