Meet the team
Sucheet AminManaging Partner
Ever since I was young, I always wanted to be a solicitor and help people. I have always worked in personal injury law and find it very rewarding to help people overcome what can be horrific injuries.
I am married to my childhood sweetheart and we have two daughters. Although I was born and raised in South London, I studied at Liverpool University and got my first job in Manchester and have never looked back since.
When I’m not working for my clients or running Aequitas Legal, I spend as much time as I can with my family. In my own time, I regularly play football and go rock climbing.
Matthew is a Solicitor for Aequitas Legal and says he is proud to be the first ever Solicitor recruited by the firm
Despite his massive passion for football, in particular Manchester United, he also enjoys other sports such as tennis and running (he ran the Manchester 10km in 2009).
He has a passion for good food and loves eating al fresco….when its not raining in Manchester that is!!!

Rachel MartinOffice Assistant
I started at Aequitas Legal in March 2011 as Office Assistant. I assist in administration. I pride myself on excellent customer service and like to provide everyone with a pleasant and helpful manner.

Katie AsquithOffice Junior
I joined the team in February 2012 as an office junior, providing support for the rest of the firm. I am thoroughly enjoying the time I have spent here and look forward to growing and developing my skills. When I’m not in work I love to socialise with friends and spending quality time with family. I also have a passion for travelling whether that be within the UK or a long haul destination. In the summer of 2012 I took part in a charity bike ride with members of our team, and from that continue to get out on my bike when time permits both for charity and for fun.
