Recent case studies

Supporting and guiding individuals, both in the UK and beyond, to secure results.

R v N

Outcome: No further action

Following the submission of pre-charge representations to the police after the client was accused of perverting the course of justice, the client was granted a no further action. This no further action was appealed, and the client was then investigated for an accusation of perjury. After repeated liaison and pressure upon the officer in case on evidential grounds, the client was granted a further no further action.


R v M

Outcome: No further action

The client was accused of torture and battery abroad. The client and the alleged victim were citizens of the United Kingdom. While criminal proceedings against our client took place abroad, we drafted a crisis management bundle for the client consisting of a chronological statement, full binders of complex evidential material and an index referring to the same, which outlined the client’s innocence to pre-empt the matter proceeding to the United Kingdom. After liaison with the client and his international lawyers, the criminal case abroad halted and the client’s interests in the United Kingdom were protected against the unproven accusations.


R v B

Outcome: Significantly reduced sentence

The client was charged with a motoring offence involving alcohol and speeding. After a close inspection of the case, we advanced mitigation alongside Counsel in reference to strong medical and psychiatric evidence. This secured the client a favourable sentence in which the aggravating elements of the offence were set aside, with the client subject to a fine and a driving disqualification.


R v K

Outcome: Removal of Caution and Settlement

We provided advanced written representations challenging the process by which a client was awarded a simple caution by West Mercia Police. We identified that the officers in the case had bartered with the client in his police interview while he was experiencing suicidality and a severe depressive episode. The officers informed the client they would provide him with his personal and work devices back if the client accepted a caution. We successfully argued that the client was cautioned for an offence he did not commit, prompting the removal of his caution by the relevant Police and Crime Commissioner. We then entered into pre-litigation negotiations with West Mercia Police, securing a pecuniary settlement the client.


R v ZH

Outcome: Client released

Following representation at the police station, the client was accused of perverting the course of justice. The evidence relied upon by the police was rightfully identified as circumstantial. Client was later released under investigation.


R v A

Outcome: Acquitted

Client accused of murdering his former girlfriend. We formed a Defence team that secured the acquittal of the client with specialist Counsel.

N v HMP

Outcome: Successfully brought action against prison staff

We formed part of legal team who successfully brought action against a British prison on behalf of client following injury and discrimination they faced. The client was an elderly Jewish prisoner who was discriminated against for wearing his kippa in canteen areas, who was denied Kosher meals, regularly facing anti-Semitic abuse from prison staff and was denied medical attention after his diverticulosis worsened, which partially immobilised him.


AH v SSHD

Outcome: Claim Settled

Claim settled with the Government Legal Department for the unlawful detention of a client who, if deported to their country of origin, would have had an extreme risk to their life as a transgender individual. The client had gained a recognised status in the United Kingdom, making the extent of their detention unlawful and their (potential) removal impossible.

"I just wanted to let you know that Akram has been fantastic throughout and he is such a hard worker and a credit to your company. Akram has always been approachable and has become a friend and someone who has supported me when I was stressed Thank you Akram and Holborn Adams "

Client

"Having called Holborn Adams regarding a matter of legal representation, I spoke with Tim Baker, Senior Solicitor, at Holborn Adams. Immediately I was reassured as to a way forward in representing myself towards the criminal investigation I found myself to be under! Within 24 hrs a letter of intent was sent to the investigation body and a protocol was set out by Tim Baker in order to establish representation for myself and to legally outline the rights and legal obligation of the investigating officers. An outcome of no criminal conviction was secured some months later and no charge was sought. Case is now resolved to my complete satisfaction and due to the absolute professional approach and very knowledgeable of laws that applied to my particular investigation. A thoroughly professional team of lawyers at Holborn Adams of which Tim Baker is part of! And I'm very appreciative and thankful for his hard and stellar work. Tim was always quick to respond to all that was needed, he protected my rights and demonstrated a confident and capable lawyer in representing me. "

Client

"I just wanted to say a huge thank you to both you and Counsel for your sound advice and general handling of my case throughout. Hiring you was the best decision I’ve made in a long time, despite the fact it’s been a year of admittedly bad decisions otherwise! You’re a credit to your firm and I’ve no doubt I wouldn’t have had the outcome I did without your guidance. Again, thank you so much for everything and please pass on my thanks to Counsel also. "

Client

"Fantastic Service - Akram is helping me out with a legal matter at present and I cannot praise him highly enough. Akram has been extremely professional and supportive and is always contactable. I highly recommend his services. "

Client

"I just wanted to thank you sincerely for your help and support over a difficult and stressful time. It was a great result, mostly due I’m sure, to your persuasive dialogues with the DWP, without which things would have escalated much further. D extends her warm thanks and gratitude too. Her poor health and state of mind was my main concern during this and, as always, you were very supportive and compassionate to her needs. "

Client

"Andrew Ford & Ria Ashcroft worked extensively over a long period of time on our son's case. At all times Andrew & Ria remained very professional & made themselves available for meetings in person, via zoom & phone calls. We were particularly impressed with their attention to detail, & they always met timescales & followed through on tasks for the case. We were kept informed at all stages, which at times included contact over a weekend. From the beginning of our contact with Andrew & Ria, we felt we could trust them with the case & believe they truly care about the people they represent. Andrew & Ria showed they cared about our son & our family & remained non-judgemental at all times. Their care while representing our son showed in everything they did. Anyone considering a lawyer for advice or to represent them , we can't recommend Andrew & Ria & this firm enough."

Client

"I cannot express how helpful and effective the team at Holborn Adams were with their legal advice. As soon as I signed as a client I felt confident I would receive the best possible legal care and they didn’t let me down. Their knowledge, experience and diligence is far greater than any other legal firm I have used previously. Akram was particularly attentive, he kept me updated, answered any questions I had promptly and I genuinely feel as though he and the team cared. I am glad I chose this company and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them"

Client

"I am extremely fortunate I came across Holborn Adams and wholeheartedly appreciate the support and efficiency during critical times. I would like to thank Akram and Faaria for having proficiently represented me and wish them and the rest of the team all the best for the future."

Client

"I greatly appreciate all the support and advice that have been provided to me by Holborn Adams. Akram and Faaria have always been on hand and accessible to give professional and sympathetic advice. They always respond promptly to my emails and texts and nothing is too much of hassle for them. I always enjoy conversations that I have with them and find them reassuring in the time of stress that I am going through. Adam and Chris are very professional and confident. I am glad I have them on my side under the stressful circumstances that I found myself in. I would recommend Holborn Adams to anyone in need of legal assistance. Thank you again"

Client

"Thank you Akram, your advice really helped. I’m very confident now that we can walk away from this without me being placed into custody. I appreciate the advice and guidance you have shown me. Thank you sir."

Client

"During this most difficult time, I found that having Holborn & Adams on my team was a great support. Their professional advice helped me greatly throughout."

Client

"We’ve just recently started working with your team and I must say I wish we had come across them earlier and hopefully the wait wouldn’t be so long. I’m happy with Andrew and Faaria. They always keep us up to date on everything and work fast. I believe the case is now in good hands. We are extremely grateful. So once again Thank you to your team."

Client

"Thank you so much for all your help, this news is welcome beyond belief. I would like to thank yourself especially, but also backed up by Alicia for the timely, sensitive, proactive and highly skilled advice and guidance given. You left no stone unturned which I believe was crucial to the successful outcome of the case. The stress our family has been under has been immense but you have acted with such humanity and compassion it’s made a very difficult time more bearable, and I really thank you for that. I spent a lot of time researching and talking to other solicitors before committing to yourself. This decision to choose yourself was based on my feeling that you understood the wider picture and nuances of the case and would give 100% which you did. Thank you once more, you have helped change our lives immeasurably for the better."

Client

"Just wanted to let you know that I finally received the letter from DBS and I’m not going to be barred! I’m so relieved. Please note I realise this was all down to your hard work of which I will be forever grateful. Please accept my wholeheartedly appreciated efforts on your part. I wish you all the best for the future."

Client

"I am pleased that I used Holborn Adams and their professional criminal defence team as my legal counsel during a very stressful and unclear time in my life. Head of crime - Andrew Ford dealt with my case in a professional and discreet manner which is what I needed at the time. The team worked tirelessly and as expected a positive result was achieved in my case, I would also like to thank Julian Goode for the excellent advocacy at the crown court and Syeda Ahmed for all the help and work done on my case."

Client

"Needed a solicitor due to a dbs minded letter. Found Holborn Adams on line which deals in specific cases like mine. Carrie Bray agreed to act on my behalf, and I found her to be approachable and very knowledgeable. Throughout she kept me informed and did exactly what she said she would and on schedule. To summarise my experience very professional and I would not hesitate to recommend Holborn Adams and in particular Carrie Bray to all my family and friends."

Client

"It was by chance I stumbled upon Holborn Adams and Andrew Ford picked up my call. I am beyond fortunate I did so. Upon initial contact with Andrew, I was sure this was the right firm to represent me. Andrew showed expertise and thorough knowledge in the field I needed representation in and was patient and comforting when I explained my situation. He was confident that with effective pre-charge representation , there was a strong chance my case would not result in any charge being applied by the CPS. He was correct and with a well complied pre-charge case file, my case was dropped and resulted in no further action. I cannot thank Andrew enough for his hard work, professionalism and reassurance through this highly distressing time for myself and my family. I also am thankful and grateful to Carrie Bray, who works alongside Andrew, for her hard work, empathy and kind approach she undertook when dealing with my case. I would recommend this team and Holborn Adams to anyone looking for excellent representation, coupled with a team who are always accessible and understanding of the stress attached with legal proceedings."

Client

"My partner and I would like to thank Holborn Adams for their legal advice, effort and time on our case. Our choosing Andrew and Mathew to represent us was the best decision we could have made. Without their extensive knowledge and skills, the positive outcome we reached could not have happened. We would not hesitate to recommend the Holborn Adams team and would use the firm in the future, if we needed its expertise again. Once again, a big thank you to Andrew, Mathew and Sharon for being patient, friendly and calm with us throughout—from the start until the very end of our case."

Client

"I happened across Holborn Adams by a stroke of luck, or fate. I am so grateful and thankful that I did, as the support, help and advice I received from day one of engaging with them, and throughout the whole ordeal has been a blessing. I was falsely accused by an ex partner of serious accusations. I had previously appointed another firm who, it seemed, were happy for my case to go trial. Some time had passed under the guidance (or lack of) my previous solicitor, and the trial was drawing closer and closer. I knew something wasn't right with my previous representations so I looked elsewhere and appointed HA. From the very first meeting I knew I was in safe hands. Both Adam and Simon are true professionals in their field and know the law inside out. They helped close down my case, meaning there was no trial. We worked together to gather evidence which proved to close the case down. 12 months ago my world was bleak, I felt a tremendous amount of pressure and stress, however every appointment I had with Simon/Adam helped to reassure me and took away many of my concerns. I couldn't recommend HA highly enough. If you are facing similar issues, give them a call immediately, you won't regret that decision."

Client

"When my partner was wrongfully arrested it felt like my world had collapsed around me. I was alone, fearful and lost. The rumours circulating affected my health and my business as people believed what the police were saying. The constant contact and reassurance from Holborn Adams, who were always there and willing to help, enabled me to carry on and thankfully we are now out of the other side. Nobody listens and nobody cares when you face something like this. But Holborn Adams do – they put their clients best interests at heart. Thank you so much to all at Holborn Adams, especially Simon Kups and Adam Rasul."

Client

"I am writing to express my appreciation for the help, advice and support me and my family received from Holborn Adams during my wrongful arrest last year. I was at a real low with the false allegations against me and the unwillingness of the police to look at alternative facts and evidence. Having you in my corner, to keep my spirits up when I was imprisoned and things were looking bleak, helped stop me from going under. The fact that you were there for me and my family at all hours, always willing to advise, is and always will be, appreciated more than words can express. I would recommend you to anyone suffering injustice or finding themselves on the wrong side of the law. "

Client

"As part of a team, you, Adam and Matthew were all patient, friendly and professional providing an environment where in the most dire of circumstances there is a reassurance that a team is working to reach the best very outcome on your behalf. Importantly the human touch of support that is so critical in times of crisis never lapsed. I have no hesitation in recommending Holborn Adams with the strongest voice to anyone for high quality legal representation and a team who are dedicated to the very best outcome for their client."

Client

"In a time of crisis the initial phone call with Adam was exactly what was needed; calm reassurance with precise legal instructions that he made sure I understood in my emotive chaos. The step by step guide of how the arrest process would proceed and clear do and do nots as well as the traps not to fall into was absolutely invaluable as I had no knowledge or prior experience of the criminal justice system. I now understand due to the nature of the criminal justice system how critical and vital it is to have good quality legal advice at the earliest opportunity."

Client

"We made the best decision in choosing Holborn Adams to represent our son and we would have no hesitation in recommending Holborn Adams or using the Firm again if ever we needed to."

Client

"I would like to say a huge thank you for all your time and effort which has led to a very positive outcome. Your friendly, down to earth and non judgmental approach was much appreciated."

Client

"I would like to thank Natasha, Adam and Chris for the excellent job they did on my case. I really appreciate it and feel that without their input this wouldn’t have been a positive result."

Client

"Adam Rasul is a tremendously impressive and affable lawyer whom I would not hesitate to recommend for any corporate or financial crime matter."

Guy Williams, Senior Clerk 25 Bedford Row
