The Family department

Andrea PanyiotouIn January our Family department welcomed its newest member, Andrea Panyiotou.

She has joined RVS as a fully qualified solicitor, who specialises in family and matrimonial law. Prior to joining RVS she worked in a well-regarded, high-paced family practice, where she honed her skills and expertise.

Andrea specialises in complex finance cases, asset protection, including pre and post nuptial agreements, as well as child arrangements.  Andrea has demonstrated a client-centric, strategic, proactive and compassionate approach to her cases, which makes her the perfect fit for our Family Department.

Here is what Rakhi Singal, our head of Family law Department had to say about Andrea:

She is an asset to the Family Department.  She is able to narrow the issues from the beginning so matters look to be resolved quite quickly. She has been a pleasure to work with and the clients’ appear to really appreciate her approach to their matters.”

Andrea also seems to have taken quite quickly to our culture and values. It has always been essential for us to not compromise on our values and approaches. Andrea seems to have a natural inclination for the client-oriented and compassionate approach we practice, which helped her fit in right away.

This is what Andrea says:

Since joining RVS I’ve felt so welcomed by the team. The cases that I took over, are really interesting and with the support of the team I’ve felt so at ease. I’m excited to see the future holds for me and the firm.

Immigration Department

Srimila SrihariSrimila Srihari is our new member at the Immigration Department. Srimila joined RVS solicitors in January 2021 as a senior solicitor. She has many years post qualification experience, specialising in immigration law.

Throughout her career, she has helped many clients with extremely complex situations. She has particular focus on Family life related matters and other Human Rights applications.

Dr Lusine Navasardyan, the Head of our Immigration Department has spoken very highly of Srimila and the impact her presence will have on the firm.

“Srimila’s presence in the department reaffirms our commitment to our clients. She is an exceptionally bright lawyer, whose intellect is rivalled only by her compassion. In immigration work it is essential to have extensive experience in the area, but also be capable of continuously learning and be flexible, as the law changes constantly. Srimila combines all these qualities, together with impeccable client service. We all are very excited to have her on board.”

Srimila has a strong ethical sense and finds that her work should serve the client’s interest above else. She has found the perfect fit within RVS.

I’ve just joined as a consultant at RVS and the support I have received is amazing! The firm has such a friendly and dedicated team which I am excited to have joined. Thank you to you all.

Litigation and dispute resolution department

Elena TonofreiOur Civil Litigation and Landlord and Tenant matters departments have merged to create one department for Litigation and Dispute resolution. This was done to ensure a better quality of services that we are providing to our clients. The department is headed by our own Paula Oligbo, who has been with the firm nearly since the inception.

Joining the department this January is Elena Tonofrei as a paralegal, working directly under supervision of Paula Oligbo and assisting her on complex matters. Elena’s background is an interesting mix of litigation and employment cases.

Here’s Paula’s take on what Elena brings to the table:

“She is a pleasure to work with, a very quick learner and always has a smile on her face. An asset to the firm especially with her employment background, definitely a plus.

RVS solicitors has always been committed to raising the next generation of great lawyers and we trust that Elena will soon start on a rising trajectory to become a strong presence in the legal industry.

Elena is clearly enjoying her time at RVS, which also reflects on her work. Here is what she says about joining the team:

I am thankful for the opportunity to work with so many talented people at RVS. Very supportive and progressive work environment which is ideal for ensuring continuous success.”

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In house counsel than hiring a law firm
      So Rakhi Singal of RVS has just handled my divorce, it was a very complex case and I came to Rakhi at the very last minute on a friend’s recommendation. My case was a mess and I stood to lose everything.

      Dealing with Rakhi was more like having In-House counsel than hiring a law firm, she does not approach her clients as a cash machine like many law firms do, she works with you to manage and minimise your costs and de-escalate conflict rather than throw wood on the fire.

      She took a huge personal interest in my case, she was always available on the phone, very quick to respond to emails and is very honest and trustworthy.

      My ex had huge spending power and used a team of high profile solicitors against me, Rakhi literally saved me from complete ruin and helped me get a very fair deal with me spending 6 times less than my ex on legal fees.

      Thank you, my new family and I will be forever grateful!!!!

      Rakhi’s passion for her profession supersedes the norm
      On dealing with a very stressful and emotional situation involving my young child. I was personally directed to Rakhi Singal. From the very outset of my situation, Rakhi identified the immediate difficulties I faced and offered me a sympathetic and rational approach to my situation, ensuring that she had a full understanding of my issues and concerns. Rakhi’s approach to my case was monumental and customary to my needs and that of my child, which was a fundamental point for me.

      The communication and support I received in and outside of court was nothing short of extraordinary. Rakhi’s passion for her profession supersedes the norm and is clearly demonstrated through her results.

      Really impressed with Rakhi’s dedication to our case
      Could not be more pleased with the results!

      I approached RVS solicitors as they were highly recommended and now I completely understand why. Soon as I contacted Rakhi I knew I wanted to use her, she was so professional and easy to get along with. I was faced with clients who were refusing the pay invoices, Rakhi immediately reassured me that she was able to help me and recoup these costs. She dealt with the whole process very professionally.

      Really impressed with Rakhi’s dedication to our case and her knowledge and experience on dealing with the case. She communicated with us throughout the process, providing me with regular updates. Thank you so much, I cannot vouch for her work enough and RAW Invites are happy for you to continue to act for all their matters in the future.
