Founded on Belief, Passion & Integrity

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

9 KBW specialises in high level and general crime, offences of murder, manslaughter, serious violence, gang crime, cybercrime, 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.

Chambers offers a wealth of experience in Regulatory Law and Immigration matters and Counsel regularly prosecute and defend on behalf of a wide range of professional regulatory bodies, both within the private and government sectors, assisting with very large, high profile and complex investigations.

We also appear in Regulatory, Extradition and Immigration Courts, Tribunals at all levels, Crown Court and Magistrates Courts, Court of Appeal and the High Court, First Tier and Upper Tribunal, Nursing and Midwifery 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 almost 50 years ago and we continue to base our service firmly upon those simple, but vital, principles

On October 3rd 2022 we welcomed three new pupils and we are currently advertising for applicants for 2023 for when the Gateway application window opens in January 2022. Pupils are the life blood of the Bar and we consider the recruitment of pupils to be one of our most important priorities each year. 

We are therefore looking forward to the coming year immensely, as being one in which the finest of 9KBW’s traditional standards of service and representation continue, whilst we welcome more new tenants to the 9KBW “family” and we guide those very new to the profession forward.

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. We are very proud of a programme.

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.

Whether we are working on site or remotely we will continue to offer the same standard of professional, dedicated clerking and administration that we are renowned for. Our clerks can be contacted by using Chambers contact details, or through the mobile numbers provided for any urgent out of hours’ matters.

We strive every day to provide our clients with a service that is of the highest level; quality, experience, commitment are the basis of what we offer and provide to all that we serve.
