General Counsel

LLB Honors – University of London



Sharp, strategic and smart is Khushbakht’s vision for any client that walks into the doors of her office with their legal problems. With this vision she began her boutique law firm based in Karachi registered with the Sindh Bar Council’s Roll of Firms. Khushbakht’s edge is that she has an adaptable and innovative mind, which is less adamant on looking to old archaic solutions instead she is focused on looking for innovative solutions for clients’ problems. This is the reason –as  a subscriber to modern practices, she has brought breakthrough in the legal jurisprudence such as her reported landmark judgment on s.26 of the Guardian & Wards Act 1860 penned by the Hon’ble Justice Zulfiqar Ahmed Khan in the Sindh High Court. In such a short time, she has emerged as an outstanding litigator and consultant with international and domestic entities like APAC Insider, Asia Law Portal and Government of Pakistan recognizing her work in the legal industry.

From providing litigation representation, formulating strategies and securing favorable orders through High Court, Tribunals, and District Judiciary in addition to providing corporate advisory and consultancy, she has the best interest for the client in her mind. Having previously worked with leading industry law firms and assisted in high profile matters, she has a deep understanding into working out a solution when the stakes are high and matters get complex. Her previous association with offices of Mr. Faisal Siddiqui, Advocate Supreme Court of Pakistan, and the offices of Late Fakhruddin G. Ebrahim, Former Chief Election Commissioner of Pakistan, Governor of Sindh and Senior Advocate of the Supreme Courts – she has insights into handling matters large or small with delicate detailing and and a sharp eye. Her corporate background by virtue of witnessing first hand corporate structure at Shell Pakistan Pvt Ltd brings her one step forward than others because she advises corporations with knowledge on not only the law but also the governance structure, policies and risk mitigation strategies that it needs legal cover and security from.
