Sexual Offences

KANGS has a proven track record spanning more than twenty years of successfully representing clients accused of sexual offences. We have acted in many high-profile investigations such as the wide ranging Metropolitan Police investigation ‘Operation Yewtree’. We are recognised as one of the leading criminal defence firms in the country and are top-ranked in Band 1 and Tier 1 for our work in this area by both the leading legal directories, Chambers UK and the Legal 500.


We understand that:

  • Allegations of a sexual nature have a serious impact on an individual and those close to them – they often adversely affect relationships with spouses, partners, children and colleagues
  • There is the potential for reputational damage and an adverse impact on employment prospects or business opportunities for the accused
  • The strain of a sexual offence allegation can cause significant mental health issues for the accused
  • Considerable care and attention is required when dealing with issues of such sensitivity

We have considerable experience in managing such issues on behalf of clients and guiding them to successful outcomes.

We have actively managed cases involving many similar issues in recent times for a wide variety of clients including:

  • Politicians and public figures
  • Professionally qualified clients

Words cannot express the way I feel knowing that the Jury believed my innocence of the allegations made against me…I am very grateful to my Lawyer and Barrister for the level of support throughout my case. I can now live without the stigma of being a sexual offender.
This has been a very harrowing experience for me and my family. There have been some very dark moments over the last 12 months or so but I have had to stay strong in order to fight these false allegations. I have been helped enormously by my solicitors who have dealt with my matter with patience and great diligence. The support I received during the trial was fantastic and I would like to extend a special thank you to them.
I contacted Kangs Solicitors having been arrested for an allegation of rape. I was in complete shock at what had happened as I had been falsely accused and I needed immediate experienced legal support. Upon meeting the senior partner of Kangs Solicitors, Hamraj Kang, I felt that they immediately understood my situation due to their considerable experience dealing with such cases. I was very comfortable with the way they sympathetically explained how they could assist me and what I would need to do with their help to prepare my case. My case was prepared to an exceptionally high standard. Kangs selected the perfect barrister for my situation in order to fight my case. I am just so thankful that I instructed Kangs Solicitors as they really have made a huge difference to my life. Thank you.
