Criminal Defence

Mr Khan will represent clients at every stage of the criminal process – whether you are under investigation, have been arrested or charged, or are seeking representation for a trial or appeal. He will also provide emergency 24-hour representation at police stations within the M25.

Forz is able to provide the experience of a QC; but without the expense of a QC. Mr Khan has won criminal cases when he has had both Queen’s Counsel and Junior Counsel on the other side.

Cases undertaken include:

  •  Murder
  •  Rape – Marital / Child / Stranger / Date
  •  International Hijacking
  •  Fraud – VAT / Company / Tax / Mortgage / Benefit
  •  Drugs – Supplying / Importation / Possession / Conspiracy 
  •  Terrorism
  •  Prison Riot
  •  Robbery
  •  Blackmail
  •  Health & Safety breaches
  •  Trading Standards
  •  Environmental Offences
  •  Regulatory breaches
  •  Corporate offences

Private Prosecutions

Private prosecutions are undertaken from the very outset when a magistrate’s court information is drafted right through to trial & appeal.

Examples of private prosecutions I have been involved in include;

•    Acting on behalf of a husband when the wife had made false allegations against him.
•    Acting on behalf of a family when their in-laws had made unlawful threats.
•    Acting on behalf of a party to litigation when the other side had told lies in their evidence.
•    Acting in a family matrimonial dispute when one side told lies to get an advantage.

Having prosecuted my first case in 1989 and having worked on my first criminal case in 1984 I can genuinely say that I bring a wealth of experience to all my client’s causes. 

I have the experience of a QC – but without the huge price tag. 

I have won cases when the other side had a QC & a junior barrister and I was on my own.

I have held the role of leading Counsel in both The Crown Court & Court of Appeal.

If you want a highly skilled, war-scarred tactician who will work hard to get you the result you want, then I am the barrister you need.

I have successfully prosecuted in:

    • The Court of Appeal
    • The Crown Court
    • The Magistrates Court


Family Law

Forz Khan has over 30 year’s experience in family law, undertaking his first family law case in 1985, which gives him a clear advantage above others. He has the experience of a QC – but without the expense of a QC.

Mr Khan is a family law expert dealing with:

  • Child Contact
  • Residence of Children
  • Family Property
  • Prohibited Steps Orders
  • Specific Issue Orders
  • Divorce
  • Injunctions
  • Care cases 
  • Financial Matters
  • and other family law issues. 



Forz could not have been more helpful with my case. It was an incredibly stressful time for me, but his professionalism and empathy was invaluable in preparing for my day in court. I could not recommend him more highly.
Ms V. D-M – London

During the course of the trial, a “no case to answer” argument was presented by the defence. It was at this stage that Mr. Khan’s case prep was put to the test and was plain to be seen and recognised as to the amount of time Mr. Khan had spent in preparing for this case. Furthermore, the additional evidence requirements identified by Mr. Khan during the early stages of the proceedings were key to securing a conviction in a difficult and complex case.
Mrs R.I – Manchester


A first class service with excellent professionalism. Throughout the six months of overseeing my case, I was informed in detail of every action and possible outcomes. This helped greatly in reducing any anxieties I had regarding my pending case. I was grateful for the reassuring support and confidence of Forz who ultimately delivered on the favourable outcome which he had advised would be the most likely outcome. I will use Forz again in all my future Counsel requirements and I would absolutely recommend his chambers as the first point of call for anyone else.

Mr Forz Khan is a leading Senior Barrister with more than 30 years experience and operates from The Chambers of F Khan in London, England. Mr Khan can accept direct instructions from the general public under the Public Access Scheme.

Mr Khan is Authorised and Regulated by the Bar Standards Board.

  • Mr Khan speaks fluent Urdu and has an understanding of Punjabi, Hindi and Gujarati.
  • Professional, licensed access, and/or lay clients may contact Mr Khan directly to obtain a quotation for legal services on 07854 109 584 or contact me here
  • Nearly all of the work undertaken by Mr Khan is conducted on a fixed fee basis. Clients much prefer this. For someone of his seniority, this proves to be highly cost-effective for those who want the level of experience of a QC and do not wish to pay for more than one lawyer.
  • Fixed fees are offered in most direct access cases. These are much preferred by clients as they can prove to be cheaper than paying on an hourly rate. Experience has shown that fixed fees work to the advantage of the client far more often than they do for the barrister.
  • Chambers do not undertake work on any no win type arrangements.
  • Chambers do not offer credit.  Payment is usually required to be cleared before any work can be undertaken.
  • Mr Khan’s hourly rate is £ 450 plus VAT per hour.

The level of fees depends on variable factors such as;

  • Case complexity
  • The likely time commitment
  • The importance of the case
  • The means of the client
  • Written client care letters set out the fees agreed at the start of a professional retainer and save where, exceptionally, time does not permit, all further work is costed and fees are agreed before work is embarked upon.
  • Fees are the subject of clear discussion and agreement by telephone and e-mail before any engagement with the prospective client is undertaken.
  • In all direct access cases, fees are agreed and paid before work commences.
  • VAT is charged as it has to be charged by law.


The following factors will influence the timescales applicable to any given case:

  • Barrister availability;
  • The availability of the client or relevant third parties;
  • The complexity of the case;
  • The amount of papers to be reviewed;
  • The need for additional information or documents;
  • The approach taken by the other side;
  • Third parties involvement in the case; and
  • Court waiting times
