Holborn Adams Team

Holborn Adams boasts extensive experience in criminal law, fraud and other legal crises, securing landmark results for clients and building a reputation for excellence amongst the legal community and beyond.

As a firm, we are sympathetic to your situation and understand that criminal investigations can be prolonged and extremely complex. With Holborn Adams acting on your behalf, we can assure you that you will be guaranteed to be advised on your case by specialist serious crime solicitors and counsel from start to finish.

Holborn Adams is a privately-funded Criminal Law firm. As a result, we are able to offer direct access to a specific lawyer at any time of the day or night and immediate consultation with some of the country’s leading Criminal Barristers, including Queen’s Counsel (QC). We are here to act whenever and wherever you need our help.

For financial reasons, many criminal and regulatory law firms, particularly on ‘legal aid’, instruct in-house ‘Higher Court Advocates’ rather than specialist independent counsel. We maintain a traditional professional relationship by instructing counsel to act alongside us in your case, offering another viewpoint and the benefit of specialist training and expertise unique to the Bar. We only ever instruct counsel of the highest quality from leading chambers nationwide and with a proven track record of success in even the most difficult and high-profile cases. READ MORE

From the outset, Holborn Adams offers extremely rare access to counsel and Queen’s Counsel, not only for court proceedings but throughout the pre-charge investigation phase. Such access is not available in legal aid matters but is of enormous benefit to privately-funded clients. They are experts on advocacy and court proceedings and can provide unique insight into the effect of pre-charge defence actions on any future prosecution and on legal flaws in the prosecution.

It is imperative to us that your case is prepared precisely and that you understand each piece of evidence or allegation against you. Our team will piece together a succinct and crystal-clear analysis of your case and present it to you in a format without legal jargon. We like to call it ‘separating the meat from the bones’ in order that you fully understand your matter.

When representing each client, we pride ourselves on tailoring our service to fit around your everyday life and try to ensure you continue your life and work as normally as possible. Although there will be times when we need your full attention and assistance, it is part of the Holborn Adams service that we take as much of the strain as possible away from you.

Latest Testimonials

“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.”


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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