Menelek has a broad experience of complex and often multi-jurisdictional commercial litigation. His practice encompasses corporate, trust, financial and regulatory litigation; fraud and asset tracing; and contentious restructuring and insolvency.
Before joining Farara Kerins, he was a barrister in private practice at Mitre House Chambers, Temple, London, where he had a mixed civil and criminal (specialising in frauds and breach of trust matters) practice.

Whilst a member of chambers, he also taught law undergraduates (part-time) at Queen Mary, University of London.
Before joining Mitre House, he was seconded to the Court of Appeal in London as a legal assistant to the Justices, which included drafting provisional Judgments for the Justices and working on some of the most ground-breaking cases in the country.
