Personal Profile

Kamal Rahman is a leading Private Wealth lawyer looking after some of the wealthiest families globally.    

She is the Principal of Mishcon de Reya in association with Karas LLP in Hong Kong and a Partner in Mishcon de Reya LLP in London. She is a member of Mishcon Private and Head of the Immigration group. 

Having practised at Mishcon de Reya for over 26 years, she is a trusted advisor to many high net worth clients who seek to internationalise their family and wealth. 

Kamal’s practice covers a comprehensive range of services (including UK investor visas, complex nationality applications, and economic citizenships) and her role regularly requires coordinated advice in many aspects of a client's life. 

Her work is relationship driven, rather than transactional, and clients value her ability to provide holistic and coordinated services, delivered in a sensitive manner. This often includes assisting clients with opportunities and challenges, utilising the wider Mishcon team's expertise in tax planning, asset protection, marriage and family, reputation management and family wealth. 

In addition Kamal has considerable cross-cultural experience, having advised clients from regions including China, Russia, the Middle East, Asia and Africa. Her multinational team reflects this diversity providing linguistic and cultural familiarity with the client base it serves.  The ability to address complex issues in a nuanced and culturally appropriate manner continues to underpin the growth of her high net worth practice.

Praised by peers and clients for her wealth of immigration expertise, she has been described as "a winning combination of charm, intelligence, both IQ and EQ, and shared family values". She is recognised as being "exceptionally good in terms of her client-centred approach and focus" and for her creativity "in making sure she explores all avenues" to find the best solutions for her clients. 

Kamal is also one of the founders of Gemini Untwined, a charity which helps conjoined twins access lifechanging surgery to give them the best possible chance at healthy and independent lives.
