9 King's Bench Walk

Founded on Belief, Passion & Integrity.

A warm welcome to the website of 9 KBW, Chambers of Shabeena Azhar and Jonathan Mole.

9 KBW specialise in high level and general crime, offences of serious violence, child abuse, rape cases and fraud, immigration, particularly those cases linked with criminal charges, traffic and regulatory work. We offer services under the direct public access rules in many areas of law.

We appear in courts at all levels, Crown Court and Magistrates Courts, Court of Appeal and the High Court, First Tier and Upper Tribunal, Nursing and Midwifery Tribunals, County Court and other tribunals.

Whether you simply require advice or need representation at trial or tribunal hearings, we offer you a wealth of expertise and choice of Counsel.

9 KBW is a Chambers founded on belief in the rule of law, the right of all individuals to be expertly represented and the administration of justice. Those solid foundations were laid down over 40 years ago and we continue to base our service firmly upon those simple, but vital, principles

In recent years Chambers has recognisably developed its specialisms and expanded in numbers, improved the quality and experience of our membership and, as a consequence, the level of cases we are currently instructed in is of a standard that is exceptional.

We continue to promise our clients standards of excellence, commitment, dedication and a quality of representation that is of the highest order.

Our clerking and administration team are highly experienced and will be happy to discuss areas of work with Solicitors and members of the public alike. We are friendly and approachable and will always put the needs of the professional and lay client first.
