Bio
Khans solicitors was established in 1985 by Shahid. As founder of Khans he has enjoyed decades of success in the legal profession as he has merged his passion for human rights with his practice of the law. He is a versatile and experienced solicitor who believes that cases are won not only due to a lawyer’s skill and expertise, but in good case preparation and strategy. His secret to ensuring he achieves the best possible results for his clients is by working closely with them, identifying material issues and laying a foundation for a good arguable case right from the start.

His areas of expertise are Wills and Probate, Crime and complex Immigration cases involving Human Rights issues. His accountancy background is invaluable in cases involving financial considerations be it a financial settlement between husband and wife or advising a client facing high value financial fraud charges. Many of his cases turn on Human Rights issues in which he specialises.

He has advised and advocated in many high profile family and criminal cases involving multi-million value assets and transactions. Examples of his notable case work include:

• Represented Kamlesh Bhal, former vice president of the Law Society in her race and sex discrimination appeals before an Employment Appeals Tribunal and the Court of Appeal.
• Advised UK and International clients facing serious fraud charges involving complex banking transactions and money laundering allegations.
• Defended clients facing multi-million fraud, money laundering and proceeds of crime charges or investigations.
• Successfully argued finer points of Human Rights in immigration, family and children cases.

Shahid continues to be involved in many Human Rights campaigns and regularly takes part in TV debates and appearances providing free advice. He takes a keen interest in keeping fit and travel.
