“Over the course of nearly two decades, I have worked together with Kamrans on many major cases.   That has included significant trials involving allegations of major drug trafficking, murder, sexual offending and fraud.  It has also included conducting appeals before the Court of Appeal in cases in which we were instructed after trial.  Kamrans approach to this work has invariably been marked by professionalism, commitment to the client and excellence.   The partners, Wajid Khalil, Abdul Iftikhar and Yousuf Khan are all, in my view, first rate”.
