Sarabjit Singh QC has long been recognised as a leading and versatile practitioner in diverse areas of law, including tax, public law, historic abuse cases and clinical negligence.

He is known for his calm and persuasive manner in court, with solicitors and opponents describing him in Chambers & Partners as “remaining cool and cheerful under intense judicial scrutiny, which is impressive to see” and as “very persuasive”. The skill of his advocacy was recognised by the Attorney General, who appointed him to each of the Crown’s A, B and C panels, and it was through his work on the panels that Sarabjit represented government departments and others in the most complex and high-profile cases in his areas of practice, including numerous appearances as sole or leading counsel in the Court of Appeal and Supreme Court. His excellence in advocacy in the higher courts was recognised by his appointment as Queen’s Counsel in 2018, whilst still in his thirties.

Sarabjit has appeared in some of the most heavyweight cases in tax and public law in the last few decades, as outlined in the description of his practice in each of those areas below. He translates the forensic approach necessary in such areas to all areas of his work; for example, he is keen on accepting further instructions specifically in the costs field, given that like tax it is heavily focused on ‘law’ and the correct legal interpretation of rules and statutes. Unusually for someone who practices in tax and public law, Sarabjit is regularly instructed in and thoroughly enjoys acting in more ‘human’ areas of the law, such as in abuse and clinical negligence cases, where his careful and high-quality pleadings and advocacy and tactful manner with clients invariably help secure excellent settlements and trial outcomes.
