The cooperation between countries regarding the exchange of people accused of crimes is more common than it ever has been. If the British authorities acknowledge a request and find the individual in question within their territory, they may very well grant the request for extradition.

Because the laws of the UK as well as foreign nations are involved, negotiating these cases can be incredibly complicated. However, our Glasgow solicitors are well-versed in the processes involved and have working relationships with lawyers all over the world to secure the best results possible, regardless of how dire the case may seem.


The 2002 ‘Proceeds of Crime Act’ has granted the crown unprecedented power in terms of seizing assets belonging alleged criminal individuals or organisations. We know the tricks that governing bodies use to ensure they receive as much money as possible and have vast experience in combatting them.

By putting together a tailor-fit team which accommodates your individual needs, we can use our combined knowledge to make sure you do not have to pay a penny more than you have to. We know better than to accept the prosecution’s opinion on the benefit of crime you have received.


Having appropriate legal support when facing a serious crime such as violence or murder is fundamental. It is critical that you get in contact with our Glasgow solicitors the moment you are aware of the case, in order to increase the chances of the whole thing being resolved quickly and discreetly.

In most cases, the police interview plays a pivotal role in the entire case. Our seasoned police station personnel will accompany you throughout the whole process and will make sure you are in the strongest position possible for the coming trial.


If you have been involved in an accident that was not your fault which has resulted in an injury, then you may be eligible for compensation. Through our cooperation with the personal injury solicitors at Bonnar Law, we have combined our knowledge and resources to provide a service that you can be sure will give you the best chance of winning your case.

If you have experienced the death or life-altering disability of a loved one, we appreciate that money is of little consolation. However, a lump sum in compensation can help to offset the resulting financial turmoil and loss of wage.


Sex crime accusations are incredibly serious, regardless of the severity of the charge. From a minor offence to rape and paedophilia, they can all cause significant distress for the accused and their loved ones. Regardless of the charge, we will work tirelessly to ensure you receive the outcome that you want.

The evidence involved with sex crime cases is incredibly complex and often irregular, but our specialists are well acquainted with the processes involved. This knowledge will be invaluable when dealing with your situation, and our ability to keep you updated on what to expect can provide much-needed peace of mind.

Our Glasgow solicitors firm has worked tirelessly to build its reputation as leading the pack when it comes to negotiating immigration laws. We have amassed a number of successful cases both for individuals as well as commercial clients, regardless of how seemingly difficult it would seem the problem is to overcome.

Applying for residency in the UK can be an expensive and drawn out process, so naturally, it is not something that you will want to go through twice. We will tailor our service to meet your precise needs. Our Immigration lawyers will ensure you won’t have to go through the same procedure twice.


Every now and again, prosecution is the price we have to pay to make our political beliefs known. From our personal experience in making political statements, we appreciate that the police can use harassment and unnecessary charges to disperse a crowd and move it along.

We are proud to say that our firm is the first that many political activists think of when they face legal repercussions. Standing up for freedom of expression and assembly is at the heart of our working philosophy, and you can be sure that our Glasgow solicitors will stand by you from start to finish whenever you need us.


Due to our deep understanding of the complexities of law and the legal process, we are often employed to review a case and determine whether or not an appeal can be made. Our experience over the years in successfully pursuing appeals has put us in an unrivalled position to secure a result which works for you.

Our solicitors in Glasgow will pursue every single avenue for appeal, meaning we will review whether you received proper representation, looking for new evidence which was not available during your original trial, and working tirelessly alongside Scotland’s very best appeal experts to make sure that you receive the justice you are due.


Issues relating to licensing hold back thousands of workers and businesses throughout the UK every year. Whether you are looking to secure your alcohol license, a taxi driver missing out on work due to issues with your license to operate, or a private company with an industry-specific issue, you can rely on us to rectify the situation.

Not only will our Glasgow solicitors offer you sound advice and explain the complexities of the relevant law to you, but we will also represent you at local council board meetings and the Burgh Halls to ensure you have the best chance of success.


If you are accused of corporate or ‘white collar’ crime, then you need to make sure you have a specialist lawyer on-hand who understands the specifics of these types of cases. You may well have your own business lawyers who are very competent at what they do, but it is rare that they also understand criminal law.

Using our fraud-specialised Glasgow solicitors and their access to the nation’s leading forensic accountants as well as IT and tax specialists, we will assemble a team who will be perfectly capable of picking apart the case of whatever accusatory body is attempting to charge you.


The significant increase in terrorist activity in our era has led to the government granting itself new powers to tackle the issue. Unfortunately, this has led to many innocent people being caught up in charges and investigations which are unjust.

Our Glasgow solicitors have made a conscious effort to familiarise ourselves with these new offences, as well as the new powers which have been granted to the police. As can be seen, by the number of high profile cases we have handled, we can combat injustice and harassment to ensure innocent people are not caught in the crossfire of the law.


Technological crimes are a relatively new aspect of the law, which many firms have not taken the time to fully grasp and understand. We have built a dedicated team of solicitors in Glasgow, however, with all of the technical, legal, and tactical knowledge they need to secure results.

We cover a broad range of crimes such as cyberstalking, online harassment, hacking, possession of indecent images, along with many more. With Aamer Anwar and Co, you can be sure we have taken the time to familiarise ourselves with this new style of criminal law in order to ensure you have the best chance of success.


In the event of accidental death, there will be a mandatory investigation into the circumstances which led to the fatality. If you or your organisation is ‘invited’ to one of these inquiries, it is vital that you seek out proper legal support as quickly as possible.

If you are called up to be a witness in one of these inquiries, you will be asked about the circumstances of the incident, as well as your awareness of any laws which could have prevented the accident not being followed. Naturally, this can lead to legal repercussions, which we can prevent.


In the media’s race to get the news out first, innocent reputations can be compromised in the process. Our Glasgow solicitors have seen a lot of success in cases of this nature, either by stopping the story from being published altogether or by managing the fallout when the event has already taken place.

There are many moving parts media law firms have to consider, and particular circumstances vary from case to case. This is why we provide tailor-fit solutions to accommodate your specific requirements and budget. Our dedicated team of specialists will make sure that your reputation receives the protection it deserves.


Our experienced drug-crime lawyers have a wealth of skill and knowledge in regards to dealing with all scales of drug-related charges including possession, supply, trafficking, or production. Regardless of how serious the charge is, you can be sure we will always treat you and your case with the respect and consideration you deserve.

Drug charges can lead to hefty sentences, even for minor offences, and so it is vital that you get in contact with one of our drug criminal lawyers who have the full strength of our vast resources behind them.


There are a number of vehicle-related charges which can quickly put you in front of a judge, and qualified representation is essential when it comes to keeping you on the road. Whether you have been accused of bad/dangerous driving, driving under the influence, or another charge such as driving without insurance or a license, our road law specialist solicitors in Glasgow will have experience in dealing with the specific charge.

Our organisation also specialises in representing the taxi industry. It is not unusual for drivers to lose their livelihood for merely trying to do their job, and it is critical that you receive appropriate representation.
