Habib was one of the first ethnic minority partners at a magic circle law firm, and has always seen it as important for young lawyers in the firm to be able to look to him as a role model. He is on the steering committee of the Clifford Chance BAME Network, of which he is a champion. Through this role, he has mentored young lawyers and is currently working with Morgan Stanley, Goldman Sachs and HSBC to mutually support the BAME agenda internally. He championed Clifford Chance’s support for London Black Women’s Project, and liaises between Clifford Chance’s Muslim Network and the Canary Wharf Chaplaincy Multifaith Steering Committee. He supports the Society of Asian Lawyers and has held a number of senior positions within the Ismaili Muslim community, such as chair of the International Conciliation and Arbitration Board. Habib is a member of the Canary Wharf Chaplaincy Multifaith Steering Group, a trustee of Bow Arts Trust, and actively supports the work of Patchwork Foundation. He has been recognised by Legal 500 and Chambers UK.
