ABOUT US

Neal McShane and Paul Kavanagh made their reputations in criminal defence work. Thereafter they expanded into a diverse range of services including Regulatory Crime, Health and Safety Proceedings, Fatal Accident Inquiries, Personal Injury claims and Crisis Management.

KM Law obtained the acquittal of Craig Whyte on fraud and financial charges regarding the acquisition and running of Rangers Football Club. This was dubbed the  "trial of the century" by the media.

Both Mr Kavanagh and Mr McShane have successfully defended numerous football fans prosecuted under the controversial Offensive Behaviour at Football Act and helped get the legislation repealed.


They both have formidable reputations and success rates in the court room.

Mr McShane has almost unparalleled experience in representing people under the Proceeds of Crime Act.

Mr Kavanagh is acting for the family of three people killed in the Glasgow bin lorry tragedy in their bid to bring a private prosecution against the driver. The first time this has occurred in over 100 years without the authority from the Lord Advocate.

He also represents families of numerous victims of the Clutha helicopter crash and the family of one of the M9 crash victims - finally found in the wreckage of their crashed car after three days.

Mr Kavanagh has been ranked as a leading individual in the prestigious Chambers & Partners legal guide and has seen himself and Mr McShane ranked among the best for criminal defence work by The Legal 500 guide.


They are assisted by the wisdom of KM Law consultant George Kavanagh, a highly regarded  and hugely respected lawyer involved in both the Lockerbie disaster probe and the inquiry into the Dunblane school shooting.


KM Law are proud to be retained by the Ministry of Defence Police Federation and one of the biggest unions in the United Kingdom, amongst others.
