As the chairman of Mezzle, Raj has been instrumental in developing the systems that are the heart of Mezzle and make it the success that it is. He qualified as a solicitor in 2007 and has been practising within the area of insurance law since then. Over the years, Raj has been responsible for managing many successful insurance litigation departments in both national and international law firms.
With this experience and knowledge, he co-founded Mezzle and is now responsible for ensuring the day-to-day operations are met and that the firm is successful at every stage of its journey through the industry. Innovation and development is what makes Mezzle different from the rest, and Raj is key to ensuring these objectives are met.
In his spare time, Raj is an avid fan of motor racing, both watching and competing in events too. He has always said if he was to choose a different profession to law, it would have been to race for one of the Formula 1 Teams and you never know, dreams can still come true!
