A Day in the Life of Director & Solicitor Manjinder Kang

by | May 6, 2022 | Articles

Leading Legal Recruiters BCL Legal this week featured our director Manjinder Kang in their latest series of “Day in the Life” features. In the article our director describes the average day in the life running the law firm, being a solicitor and raising a family.

Manjinder Kang established Kang & Co Solicitors in 2016 as a specialist motoring defence firm. Now in the Legal 500 and top ranked in the UK’s Chambers and Partners, he tells The Brief about a typical day in his life as director and principal solicitor at a practice that deals with clients from all over the country who are accused of complex and serious driving offences.

I start the day by dropping my children off at nursery before driving to Kang & Co’s head office in Birmingham city centre. We also have branch offices in Milton Keynes and London, but these are mostly used for client meetings, so I am usually based in Birmingham.

It takes about an hour to drive to the office, and I usually get to work by around 8.15 to 8.30am.

The first thing I do when I arrive is to check my emails to assess any that require urgent action. Then we have a team meeting before the office opens officially at 9.00am.

The team currently consists of me, a barrister who is a co-director, and a team of trainees, paralegals and legal advisers. Our commitment to client care and results driven approach means the firm is continuing to grow with a substantial increase in new clients seeing us actively recruiting.

Kang & Co are passionate about staff training. In motoring defence, it is very important to be precise and follow a particular process so as a director it is important to me that we train our own solicitors. It is a long and time-consuming process, but I know it will pay dividends as we grow.

Team meeting

Because we are such a specialist firm, and we represent clients throughout England and Wales, immediately at 9.00am things start to get quite hectic. So, before that happens, I go through the emails that have come in overnight with the team and decide which team member will be assigned to each task.

These enquiries often come in while we are closed because we still receive a lot of emails and enquiries when the office is shut. Clients that contact us are often distressed and require urgent advice and representation so we aim to reply to all new enquiries as quickly as possible.

Initial calls

During these initial phone calls we establish whether we can help potential enquiries, and if we are able to help them explain the likely legal fees involved. Sometimes during these initial conversations, which are free of charge, we will establish that they don’t actually need a lawyer.

If, for example, somebody with a clean licence has been caught doing 37mph in a 30mph limit, they acknowledge that they did it, and all of the paperwork from the Police is in order, which it usually is now, then if they accept a fixed penalty notice they will get three points on their licence and a £100 fine. If we were to take it to Court, the best we could get for them would be three points, so there wouldn’t be much of a difference but it would have cost them a lot more money.

An Excellent Service, Mr. Kang is a highly sought solicitor. Very knowledgeable about the subject to hand and extremely confident with the advice given to me at the time of a stressful situation.

I would recommend Kang and Co Solicitors above any other company I’ve spoken too.

Above all I got the outcome I desired based upon Mr. Kang expertise.​

Very clearly explained the process, took his time over getting a very clear and accurate history of events and mitigation. Barrister on the day was well prepared, went over key mitigation and presented it well in court, an excellent advocate. Barrister clearly explained possible outcomes and most realistic outcome.

Excellent service from initial contact to finishing the court case. Would recommend to anyone.
