Ranjit Uppal appointed District Judge

Ranjit’s new role will take effect from 30 November 2020.

Our Director and Solicitor Advocate, Ranjit Uppal will leave Switalskis next month to take up a full-time post as District Judge. Ranjit has served as a Deputy District Judge since 2010, alongside his role at Switalskis and will now move into his new role on a full-time basis.

Ranjit has worked in the legal profession since 1995 when he joined Parker Bird Solicitors. He qualified as a Solicitor in 1997 – making him the first Sikh Solicitor in Huddersfield – and was made Partner in 2000. He later joined Switalskis when both firms merged in 2012. Ranjit has also served as President of Huddersfield Law Society (making him the youngest and first Asian president in its 126-year history) as well as carrying out Pro Bono projects in Brazil, Uganda, Paraguay and Ghana, all relating to Child Care Law. His international training has been with SFAC (Strengthening Families for Abandoned Children).  He was recognised nationally as Solicitor Advocate of the Year at the Law Society Excellence Awards in 2016.

Ranjit comments:

“I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with Switalskis and worked with a brilliant team of people. Some of my colleagues moved with me from Parker Bird Solicitors so I’ll be leaving colleagues I’ve known since 1995. It’s been a very tough decision to leave, but I am very much looking forward to becoming a District Judge. I also know that the Child Care Law team will continue to go from strength to strength under Ruth Coneron’s leadership. I will always be grateful to my colleagues at Switalskis and feel that the opportunities they’ve given me have enabled me to develop into this new role”.

...Ranjit’s new role will take effect from 30 November 2020. The Lord Chief Justice has deployed him to the North Eastern Circuit, based at Doncaster County Court as the principal court, with sittings at Sheffield Combined Court. Everyone at Switalskis thanks Ranjit for all that he has done in his time with the company and wishes him well in his new role as District Judge.
