Shah is a legal professional and long-time Camden resident. Although he now provides criminal defence and immigration advice, in a previous life, he set up and ran restaurants. He takes a keen interest in supporting local enterprises and providing young people opportunities to get a start in business. Shah came to the UK from Bangladesh as a child, and he is a staunch advocate for migrant rights, regularly providing pro-bono legal advice for local charities supporting residents in need. When not working he is found playing pool or cooking up a feast for friends and neighbours in Somers Town.
