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, gang crime, cyber crime, child abuse, rape cases and other sexual offences, 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 specialism’s 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 are keen to share our members experience through seminars and workshops and we provide our now acclaimed programme of events for Police Officers in London and the South East, known as the OIC Roadshow, details of which can be found under the OIC Roadshow heading on our website. Training is provided for those at the most senior levels as well as those most junior. Mock trials are also and increasingly a part of our wide programme of events. If you would like further information contact details are on the dedicated page. It is a programme we are very proud of.

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 and fee levels with Solicitors and members of the public alike. An indication of fees charged generally, by our members, can be found under the About Us heading then under our Fee Scales page. We are friendly and approachable and will always put the needs of the professional and lay client first
