Serious &
General Crime

We have been defending criminal cases for well over twenty years since the firm was originally established in 1997. We are rated as one of the best criminal law firms in the country and we are top ranked in both the leading legal directories, the Legal 500 and Chambers UK, recently winning the Legal 500 award for ‘Criminal & Fraud Law Firm of the Year’. The firm’s founding solicitor Hamraj Kang has also won the Legal 500 ‘Individual Criminal & Fraud Solicitor of the Year’ award.

Whether the allegation is relatively minor or serious and complex, with a national or international dimension, our criminal defence solicitors understand that being under investigation, under arrest or charged and facing prosecution for an offence is a stressful, worrying and confusing time.

Our commitment is to:

  • Provide first class proactive advice and representation based on our many years’ experience
  • Act as an interface on your behalf with the police, investigators and prosecuting authorities
  • Defend you with vigour and protect your interests at all times
  • Proactive advice and assistance to clients who have reason to suspect that they may be at risk of a police or regulatory investigation
  • Advise you at the police station if you are subject to an interview under caution, either voluntarily or under arrest
  • Provide advice and assistance at any proceedings in the Magistrates’ Court or Crown Court and where necessary, instruct the most appropriate counsel and forensic experts to assist with the case analysis, preparation and presentation
