Funding a Criminal Prosecution
If you are facing a criminal investigation or prosecution, you should seek out the very best lawyers to defend your case, so that you have the best chance of a successful outcome. Our solicitors and barristers are highly experienced and recognised nationally for successfully defending a significant number of high-profile criminal prosecutions throughout England and Wales.
As a specialist private funded criminal defence law firm, we represent clients that are in a financial position to fund their cases privately, as a result our clients do not qualify for Public Funding (Legal Aid) and for that reason we do not undertake any work on Legal Aid.
Our Private Legal Defence Lawyers accept new cases on a Fixed Fee basis, ensuring that our clients know exactly how much their case will cost from the outset.
Private legal representation is not only reserved for the very wealthy, many of our clients are also ordinary people that require a robust defence team to provide them with the best chance of protecting their reputation and career. If you require more information on the cost of defending your case, speak to one of our solicitors for a free no obligation fee estimate.
Paying Privately for Court Cases
We have been covering only private client criminal cases for many years and the benefits for our clients are very clear. Our clients receive a much higher level of legal expertise and attention, because they are funding their cases privately. This enables us to dedicate more time in preparing the case, compared with firms that may also offer legal aid. Legal aid lawyers (Duty Solicitors) are often over-worked and are covering more cases than they should, as the nature of their work is not profitable, and this can result in your case not receiving the time and attention it deserves.
Our private client solicitors are specialists in their field, have significant experience and will have dealt with other cases like yours in the past and will know the best strategies to achieve a not guilty verdict.
Consequences of a Criminal Conviction
Our top-rated criminal defence team understand that being prosecuted will have a devastating impact upon your career, future income and your professional profile and for that reason we leave no stone unturned when it comes to scrutinising the evidence and planning a strong defence strategy.
We appreciate that for many white-collar workers and regulated professionals a conviction for a crime could result in a professional regulatory body such as the Solicitors Regulation Authority, General Medical Council or Financial Conduct Authority assessing whether you remain suitable to continue in your profession given the criminal conviction on your record. We aim to secure the best possible outcome for all our clients, as a conviction could result in life changing consequences or prevent you from continuing your chosen career path.
It is important to appreciate that a relatively minor conviction, such as common assault, may not result in a custodial sentence (prison), however, a conviction could potentially result in the end of your career or issues with other aspects of your life, such as travelling to other countries for holidays or work. Our lawyers understand that being prosecuted is a tough time and your case is a priority for us. Instructing our specialist top ranked criminal lawyers to represent you will give you the best possible chance of a successful outcome and we will fight your corner to win.
Our solicitors appreciate that if you are a public figure or sports personality, a criminal conviction or even investigation could potentially result in suspension from public office or cancellation of sponsorship / advertising deals. It is, therefore, crucial that you instruct a qualified and experienced criminal defence law firm that has previously represented many high-profile clients and professionals, as this will provide you with the best chance of a not guilty verdict.
A criminal record for an offence such as assault, battery or harassment could also cause difficulties in family law / care proceedings as a criminal conviction will create a further obstacle to overcome in those proceedings. The lawyer you choose to instruct to defend your case will have a significant impact upon the direction and outcome of the case, therefore you should take serious consideration when choosing the law firm.

Advantages of Paying Privately for a Specialist Criminal Defence Lawyer
- Expertise: There are very limited number of law firms throughout the country that only accept criminal cases on a private fee-paying basis, these lawyers will usually only accept such cases because they possess superior legal knowledge and expertise, which understandably comes at a premium.
- Communication: Paying for legal representation privately will usually result in better and more frequent communication with your Solicitor and Barrister. Lawyers paid privately will usually respond to e-mails and phone calls quickly.
- Preparation: The amount of time a lawyer spends preparing a case and considering the evidence will have an impact upon the result. Paying privately will ensure that the lawyer can spend ample time on case preparation, which will have a positive impact on the overall outcome of the case. We prepare thoroughly for each case.
- Service: Clients that instruct lawyers via private funds will receive a substantially better service than those using legal aid.
- Quality: The overall quality of legal representation from private client solicitors is significantly superior.
- Consistency: We provide all our clients with consistency and continuity, the lawyer dealing with your case will be the same person from start to finish.

We have significant experience in successfully defending:
What our Client Say
“Manjinder Singh Kang is an exceptional solicitor. Although my case was not straightforward, after a no obligation phone call I instructed Kang & Co. as Manjinder and team were just as motivated to win my case as I was. My previous solicitor did not entertain fighting all the way for my case when it was time to plea as often the easiest outcome is also the quickest to end the case. I believe Kang and Co. knew how essential it was for me as a professional to maintain my clean record to save the career and reputation that I have worked so hard for. He was attentive when I explained the full mitigating circumstances behind my incident and I realised that the only way for the facts to come out would be by fighting all the way to trial.
Although every case has strengths and weaknesses, Manjinder was honest with myself on the best course of action to strengthen my case. His language, often involving complex areas of law was easy to understand and interpretable. Manjinder was very prompt with replying to my emails and always welcomed questions when I was unsure on a matter. The quotes were competitive and were payable in bite sized chunks as the case progressed. His choice of counsel was also a great match for the nature of my case. My case progressed to the Crown Court and Manjinder was still working hard throughout proceedings and often attended after completing his shift at his office.
The combination of hard work, expertise and commitment to achieve the best possible result ended up in my acquittal at trial. I believe instructing Kang & Co. at the time that I did made all of the difference in securing a successful outcome. I would definitely recommend Kang and Co. if you need legal representation.” Mr S. Mir
“…Another reason I chose this company was because they were the only company which insisted in arranging a meeting in person so that they could meet with me and prepare my case well in advance of my Court Hearing. All the other companies only offered phone meetings if I appointed them. This case was very important to me and I wanted to meet my lawyer in person so that he fully understood my case. I’m a strong believer in meeting the people I do business with, and Manjinder clearly shares the same view…” – S. Newman
“After calling Kang & Co for an initial chat about my case, I decided to appoint them on my case. From start to end they were keeping me informed and in the loop on everything that was going on. They were a great help to me and I thank them for advising and representing me in Court.” – N. O’Reilly
“First class experience helped with all queries leading up to Court and the Barrister was very professional and reassuring on the day. Would definitely recommend” – M. Bains
“Very good lawyers, charged me a reasonable fee, provided me with a meeting with one of their lawyers at their offices where I explained the background to them. They explained the law in simple terms and represented me in Court where they were able to get the result we were aiming for. A very professional and straight-talking company that does what they say they will do. I would certainly recommend using this company for legal issues.” – J. Chester
Representation at The Police Station
In certain circumstances, if the police are investigating a criminal allegation, they may invite you to attend a ‘Voluntary Police Interview Under Caution’ as an alternative to placing you under arrest. If you have been invited to a ‘Voluntary Interview’ at the Police Station, it is important to note that this is not simply ‘a chat with the police’ it will be a formal recorded interview, you will be placed under caution and the evidence gathered at the interview, will be used as part of the prosecution case, if you are charged. It is vital that you make arrangements and secure legal representation well in advance of attending the Police Interview.
The interview is a very important part of a criminal case, and the foundation of a defence should be established during the interview and for that reason it is crucial that you are legally represented at the Police Station.
If you have been called to attend a formal interview under caution, please contact us on 03452229955 and one of our lawyers will be able to provide you with a Fixed Fee for representing you at the Police Station.
Our lawyers have successfully advised and represented suspects at the Police Station, which has subsequently resulted in the police case being discontinued. Seeking specialist legal advice from a qualified solicitor from the outset will ensure that your defence is properly formed, should you be charged and may even result in the Police / CPS taking a decision not to prosecute due to the representations made by the lawyer.

If you are suspected of committing a crime, have been asked to attend the police station or have recently been charged, please contact us as soon as possible. Seeking legal advice at an early stage will significantly increase the prospects of a successful outcome and will ensure that your defence is properly established from the outset. Contacting us at an early stage of the investigation or immediately after charge will enable us to advise you of the cost of representation, how you ought to plead and the options available to you.
What Will Happen When You Contact Us?

How Much Will a Private Solicitor Cost Me?
Each client, and each case is individual and different, for that reason there are no set fees for our cases, because the cost will be determined by the number of offences, the nature of the offence and the evidence in the case.
