Bahar Alaeddini
Bahar is a partner in the gambling law team.  After graduating from King’s College London in 2007, Bahar trained as a barrister and was called to the Bar in 2008. She went on to work on the Turks and Caicos Islands public inquiry with the Rt Hon Sir Robin Auld (Lord Justice of Appeal 1995-2007 and a member of the Privy Council 1995-present), investigating allegations of government corruption, which resulted in the territory’s Cabinet and Constitution being suspended, resulting in direct rule from Westminster.

Before joining Harris Hagan, Bahar worked for two years in the fitness to practise department of the Health and Care Professions Council in London, investigating and presenting disciplinary cases against health professionals before the HCPC’s various statutory committees.  She has also taught criminology and human rights to undergraduate law students.


Harris Hagan is the only City of London law firm dedicated exclusively to the provision of legal services to all sectors of the gambling and leisure industry in the UK and internationally. They have been top ranked by Chambers UK and the Legal 500 since they were established in 2004. In October 2013, they were awarded the prestigious Legal 500 gaming law firm of the year.

They understand not only the law associated with betting, gaming, licensing and entertainment, but the business behind it. The role of the modern law firm has evolved and their focus is to provide clients with specialist legal intelligence over and above pure legal advice.
