Testimonial – Ungrounded Allegation of Assault

Having found myself in the unfortunate position of needing legal representation due to an ungrounded allegation that I had assaulted a youth I contacted Kang and Co and was immediately provided clear, concise guidance as to possible next steps and the actions I should take if each or any were to occur.

Having heard nothing from the Police for just under a year I received a call where I was invited for a PACE interview. Immediately the advice from Manjinder became useful as he had advised that the police would position this as a ‘friendly chat’, which they did, and that I should offer no further information other than to agree attendance and that I would be accompanied by a solicitor. At this point I engaged Kang and Co and Manjinder took over all communication with the Police regarding this matter.


At the interview I was briefed by Manjinder prior to the interview commencing with the officer in charge, again he was extremely clear and concise on how to conduct myself in the interview and went over what the allegation was, what that would mean in terms potential outcome if charges were pressed and most importantly how the Police officer may act during questioning and the tactics that may be used.

Even though I had nothing to hide I found the whole experience extremely stressful and Manjinder was correct in that the ‘friendly chat’ was an interview under caution and many questions were targeted to trip me up or get me to incriminate myself. Not the nicest experience and one I hope I never have to repeat but with a successful outcome I am glad its all over, but in the unfortunate circumstance that I need legal representation again I will have no hesitation in using Kang and Co again. Paul German, 5 Stars, Trust Pilot

Paying Privately for Court Cases

We have been covering only private client criminal cases for many years and the benefits to our clients are 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

At Kang & Co Solicitors, we truly understand the profound impact that a criminal conviction can have on your career, income, and professional reputation. That’s why our exceptional criminal defense team goes above and beyond, leaving no stone unturned when it comes to thoroughly examining the evidence and crafting a strong defense strategy tailored to your specific case.

We recognize that for individuals in white-collar professions and regulated fields, a conviction could subject you to intense scrutiny from professional regulatory bodies like the Solicitors Regulation Authority, General Medical Council, or Financial Conduct Authority. This scrutiny has the potential to jeopardize your ability to continue in your chosen profession, which is why we are dedicated to securing the best possible outcome for all our clients.

We firmly believe that a conviction can have life-changing consequences that may hinder your career path, even if it is a minor offense like common assault that does not result in prison time. It can still have a detrimental impact on your career, personal life, and even your travel opportunities. We understand that facing prosecution is an incredibly challenging time, which is why we prioritize your case and provide you with highly acclaimed criminal defence team who will fight vigorously to win or achieve a low sentence.

If you are a public figure or sports personality, a criminal conviction or investigation can potentially lead to suspension from public office or the cancellation of sponsorship and advertising deals. This is why it is absolutely crucial to choose a qualified and experienced criminal defense law firm like ours, with a proven track record of successfully representing high-profile clients and professionals. By choosing us, you give yourself the best chance of a not guilty verdict.

Additionally, a criminal record for offenses such as assault, battery, or harassment can complicate family law or care proceedings, creating another obstacle that needs to be overcome. The lawyer you choose to defend your case will have a significant impact on the direction and outcome of your case. Therefore, it is of utmost importance to choose wisely.

To speak with one of our specialist private crime legal team members, please give us a call at 0330 818 9837 for an initial telephone case assessment and a no-obligation fee quotation. Alternatively, you can fill out our contact form, and we will promptly get back to you.

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 0330 818 9837 and one of our lawyers will be able to provide you with a Agreed 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 specialist lawyer from the outset will ensure that your defence is properly formed, should you be charged. It may even result in the Police / CPS taking a decision not to prosecute due to the representations made by the lawyer.

What our Clients 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
