9 King's Bench Walk

Founded on Belief, Passion & Integrity


9 KBW are committed to providing a first class service to those who instruct us and we will stand firm with the solicitors who currently face devastating Government cuts to their numbers and services. Solicitors are the life blood of the Criminal Justice System and as such we will continue to fight against those who seek to remove, from the public, the right of access to the services of excellent and experienced solicitors who can offer legally aided representation to their clients.
