What our clients are saying
‘Tahmina Rahman is a very skilled barrister.  She knew the case very well and presented it very well.  The SGO carer told me how valued she felt by Tahmina and that she really put her at ease. Tahmina has very good people skills which were essential in this case.’ Social Worker, Hackney Council (February 2020)

Tahmina specialises in complicated public law cases, representing local authorities, parents and children, and in private law children cases, including leave to remove from the jurisdiction cases. Her cases have involved representing parties where there have been babies/infants suffering fractures, serious inflicted injuries in ‘witchcraft’ or ‘sorcery’ cases, a child at significant risk from gangs and a case involving sibling sexual abuse.

Tahmina (leading Amy Slingo) successfully resisted an appeal before the President of the Family Division in which the Court was asked to provide guidance on the duties of local authorities in care proceedings and in cases involving relinquished babies to notify fathers and wider families in cases where the mother objects. A, B And C (Adoption: Notification of Fathers And Relatives) [2020] EWCA Civ 41.

Tahmina represented the local authority before the Court of Appeal successfully appealing against a finding that the threshold for making a care order had not been made out. K (A Child): Threshold Findings) [2018] EWCA Civ 2044 (04 September 2018)

Tahmina also has considerable experience in matrimonial finance cases, advising and representing clients in substantial asset and complex matters involving trusts, foreign assets, bankruptcy, ante-nuptial agreements, inherited wealth and TOLATA claims.
