Manzurul is a ​Member and heads our ​Dispute Resolution team


A little bit about Manzurul

Manzurul has extensive expertise in a range of civil and commercial litigation and dispute resolution matters, including contractual and business disputes, Employment Tribunal claims and intellectual property matters.  He has acted for a varied client base ranging from private individuals to international corporations.

Manzurul graduated from the University of Kent with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law, and went on to complete his legal qualifications by obtaining his Postgraduate Diploma in Legal Practice from the University of Law. He joined Mullis & Peake in May 2012, leaving his position as solicitor and partner at a firm in Kent.

In terms of his commercial clients, Manzurul has a particular interest in construction disputes involving adjudication, arbitration or Court proceedings.  Having owned and managed two law firms, his commercial experience means he understands the importance of minimising cost and disruption to the day-to-day running of a business.

In respect of his private clients, Manzurul has particular expertise in dealing with financial abuse matters, helping clients, particular those who lack capacity to deal with the own financial and legal affairs, recover misappropriated funds from third parties. 

The Commercial Litigation team’s litigators were described by the Legal 500 Directory 2019 as ‘experienced, reliable and approachable’ and are ‘safe pair of hands for landlord and tenant matters’. Manzurul was described as a ‘robust and effective litigator and an expert in his field’. 
In Legal 500 Directory 2020, the commercial litigation practice at Mullis & Peake LLP is noted for producing 'storming results' and is led by the 'tactical and very shrewd' Manzurul Islam.

"Manzurul Islam is the team's standout lawyer. Sometimes it is as if he knows what the other side is going to do before they do it."

"One of Manzurul Islam's key strengths is that he really understands people and business, rather than just the law; he definitely gets it, and is a real asset to the firm."

Manzurul is also a member of Society for Construction Law.

Outside of work

Manzurul is a keen football fan, both playing and watching as often as he can, although this is becoming less frequent as his family grows.  He also volunteers for charity and community projects, holding the role of a patron for a private boarding school based in the West Midlands and a member of the development committee of Havering Islamic Cultural Centre.

"Thank you for the very professional and reasonable way in which you dealt with this contentious matter.  It’s always helpful when we as solicitors can work together to resolve disputes, and hold true to the meaning of dispute resolution."

Opposing Solicitor

"Manzurul was recommended to me through a mutual business associate, as I needed advice on unfair dismissal. Manzurul's expertise in this field was excellent and through his guidance my case was settled satisfactorily out of court."

"I received first class service on an employment matter. The advice and assistance received brought about an excellent outcome."
