Specialist criminal solicitors and barristers at defending clients with allegations of serious fraud. Top ranked by The Legal 500 and Chambers.

Our specialist team of private client criminal defence lawyers can be appointed on competitive fixed fees to advise and represent you or your company in relation to an allegation or prosecution of fraud. Our fixed fees start from £2,000+VAT which includes initial legal advice and representation at the first Court Hearing.
What is Serious Fraud?
Serious fraud usually involves high values and an advanced level of complexity to undertake the alleged course of conduct. It can include investment fraud, such as Ponzi schemes or boiler room fraud in addition to a wide range of corporate fraud.
Due to the complexity and expertise required in bringing a successful prosecution, these types of prosecutions are usually investigated and undertaken by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO).
Our law firm is ranked amongst the top tier of law firms in the United Kingdom with a Band A ranking in the category of Crime (which includes Driving Offence), the highest ranking that can achieved in the Chambers Guide.
The Legal 500 guide describes Kang & Co Solicitors as being “well adept at tailoring its resources to an individual case and investing heavily for the client. Legal advice is honest and the team always takes into consideration the views of the client.”
The Sentence for Fraud
Prosecutions are usually brought under the Fraud Act 2006, which covers a range of different conduct which can be considered as fraudulent. This includes:
- False representation – Section 2
- Failing to disclose information – Section 3
- Abuse of position – Section 4
The sentence imposed by the Court will be determined by the value, the level of complexity and other factors such as the relationship between the parties. The Court can impose a sentence of up to 10 years imprisonment for fraud.
As this type of criminal offence can result in a lengthy prison sentence, it is crucial to secure specialist representation so that you have the best possible chance of a successful outcome.
Paying Privately for Criminal Defence
Kang and Co 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 and resources in preparing cases, compared with firms that 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 generally 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.
Our Agreed Fees for Private Crime cases start from;
£2,000 + VAT

Advantages of Paying Privately for a Specialist Criminal Defence Lawyer
- Expertise: There are a very limited number of law firms throughout the country that only accept criminal fraud cases on a private fee-paying basis, these lawyers will usually only accept such cases because they possess superior legal knowledge and expertise.
- Communication: Paying for legal representation privately will usually result in better and more frequent communication with your Solicitor, Barrister and Legal Team. Lawyers defending fraud cases 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 enough 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.
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. If you are interested in appointing us as your lawyers to defend a case of fraud, please call us and we can provide you with an estimate on the cost to take your case to trial.
Our fees for representation at the First Magistrates’ Court Hearing start from £2,000+VAT and this will include a meeting with one of our lawyers, initial detailed legal advice and representation at the Magistrates’ Court.

Once we have a basic understanding of the allegation, and your version of events we will be able to provide you with our initial thoughts on the options available to you and how we can assist.
We will also provide you with an indication of the likely cost to defend your case and will provide you with a fixed fee for appointing us as your legal team.

Kang & Co Solicitors are very efficient and punctual. They went out their way with their services. My friend recommended them and I will indeed do the same. Excellent quality. Anything I didn’t understand was explained to me. They went out of their way with very short notice for the work I required.
The whole process was very easy and professional from start to finish. All my questions were answered in a way I could understand and I always felt reassured. I got the least sentence I could have imagined due to all of your help and I am very satisfied because of this. Thank you for your help throughout.
I was very pleased with the service I received from Kang & Co kept me informed of everything that was happening with my case dealing with Patrick on the phone was very pleasant also the barrister Mr. Walker they instructed for my case was excellent. Definitely recommend this company.
Very good from start to finish and I got the best result possible.
I have previously dealt with Carla Riozzi at Kang & Co and would highly recommend her. She was professional and knowledgeable about the law. She kept me up to date with my case and I found her very approachable. I would definitely instruct this firm again. Thank you for your assistance.
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.
Very helpful and informative. They explain things in plain English to help you understand the legal process. I got caught up in a problem and felt I was way outside my comfort zone, but everyone on the team at Kang & Co were excellent at making me feel more at ease.
A very straightforward process with minimal stress, given the circumstances. I was listened to, my questions were answered clearly and I was advised of the best and worst case scenarios right from the start. I was very pleased with my representation and the outcome achieved was points and a fine as opposed to a disqualification.
My licence was going to be revoked and i was considering representing myself in Court and a family member recommended contacting Kang & Co. I then weighed up using a specialist firm or representing myself and made the right choice. Chris Hopkins who represented me in court was very supportive and professional. He done his utmost to get me the best outcome and delivered.
Kang and Co were exceptional in helping me retain my licence after an unfair dash-cam case was brought against me. I was faced with 6 point, a ban and £800 fine, and I received none of these. Win, win, win! Very happy with them.
Excellent service delivered by a dependable team. Found them online and no regrets with the quality of representation they offered throughout the case. Always arrived early and ensured good communication at every stage of representation. Corporate service but no hidden charges so you know what you can afford right from initial meeting.
I would highly recommend using Kang & Co Solicitors. I received high quality services for the duration of my case, with the right level of honesty and reassurance. All advice provided was extremely clear and Mr Kang always went above and beyond to ensure that I had fully understood any matters discussed.
From start to finish they kept me in the loop and was very straight to the point which I liked, not leading you on that you get with other firms. One firm I would highly recommend and I would very much be using in the future if needed. Thank you to Mr. Kang and his team .
I highly recommend Kang & Co Solicitors. From the outset communication was excellent. Manjinder Kang was very professional, polite and showed the highest level of integrity throughout the process. Thank you for the representation in court, which was a must.
An extremely professional service – full and honest appraisal of situation and a positive outcome. Highly recommend!
A great experience with Kang & Co Solicitors. Fast and professional communications and excellent representation in court with a good outcome.
We required advice and representation at a Public Inquiry with the Birmingham Traffic Commissioner and appointed Manjinder of Kang & Co after reading an article that he had published on Transport online. He achieved the best possible outcome for us at the Inquiry – our license was not revoked and our fleet was not curtailed.
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.
Amazing service overall. I was impressed with how fast I had responses from emails with any queries or questions. On the day of my meeting with Kang & Co all options were made very clear and the advice I was given provided the result I wanted! I highly recommend Kang & Co, especially for motoring convictions.
I was summonsed for a speeding offence on the M6 toll where the speed recorded was essentially an automatic disqualification. I pleaded guilty and engaged the services of Kang and Co to plead my case not to be disqualified from driving. My outcome was positive and I retained my licence. I would recommend Kang and Co to anyone who has the need for Legal Representation.
I arranged for my nephew to see Mr Kang as he was facing a driving ban after getting 12 points in three years. Mr Kang gave my nephew detailed advice on obtaining the necessary evidence for his court case. Mr Shocker represented him at the magistrates court and instead of being banned he received a modest fine. All within a week or two!
We were very pleased with their service & if ever we needed a solicitor in the future we would definitely use Kang & Co Solicitors.
Manjinder Kang was absolutely fantastic and i could not have had better representation during my case. I have already recommended his firm to all my contacts for any issues relating to road transport law.
Kang & Co are worth every penny. I have had a very good experience with these solicitors, helping me reduce my inevitable driving ban to as low as I could of possibly wished for.They were very supportive throughout the entire process and I owe them a big thank you for helping me to retain my job.
I would like to say firstly a Big Thank you to Kang and Co especially Mr Manjinder Kang Solister and Mr Thomas Wheeler Barrister an excellent job done. They both know the laws and the perfect outcome. I feel that to have the best is to get the best and this company definitely fits this.

An exceedingly competent, professional and dedicated practice lead from the front by Manjinder Kang.

I would not hesitate in recommending Kang & Co Solicitors.
Excellent service that we received from Kang & Co Solicitors. Advice was done methodically and easy to understand with a great result. Thank you.
The preparation on my case was second to none, this began from the moment I contacted Manjinder Kang and his team, and they were very proactive to look into my case ASAP. The quality of representation in Court at Court was excellent, I was assigned with a Barrister, and someone who had extensive experience in this field. The outcome of your case 6 points, although I was expecting a ban as minimum.
