Amjid Javed

Associate Solicitor

White Collar Crime

Amjid works with Mohammed Sarwar Khan in the White Collar and General Crime department. Amjid joined the firm in December 2017, having completed his training contract at a leading ‘Legal 500’ criminal defence practice in London.

Amjid has extensive experience in a range of serious and complex criminal cases, including (but not limited to) murder, manslaughter, serious fraud, large-scale drugs conspiracies, drugs importations, firearms offences, slavery and historic sexual offences. He has defended in cases brought by the Serious Organised Crime Agency, HM Revenue & Customs, Department of Work and Pensions, Trident, and Trading Standards.

Amjid is an accredited police station representative and duty solicitor. He is noted for his shrewd and tactical advice to clients during the early stages of a criminal investigation. Amjid’s involvement at the beginning of an investigation, particularly during the police station interview and/or during a dawn raid, can make the difference between a client being charged or released – and crucially, between an acquittal or a conviction.

Amjid is fluent in Urdu and Punjabi.
