Notable Cases


In just 5 years we have become one of the leading UK criminal defence solicitors capable of undertaking the most serious cases and ensuring our clients always receive the best quality representation. From matters of serious fraud to motoring offences, our solicitors help you every step of the way.

General Crime

Whether the offence is minor or serious and complex, national or international our criminal defence lawyers understand that being at risk of investigation, under arrest or charged with an offence and facing prosecution is a stressful, worrying and confusing time.

Serious Fraud

We provide expert legal advice and representation to those suspected of or charged with any type of fraud and understand the stresses it brings. Our team is able to provide the highest quality of service whilst maintaining complete discretion at all times.

Terrorism Law

We believe that human rights and civil liberties are an individual's most valuable asset. Our specialists led by a former Lawyer of the Year, Timur Rustem, provide each and every client with the individual service and respect they deserve.

Confiscation & Forfeiture

Prosecuting authorities now have wide ranging powers to restrain, confiscate and freeze assets prior to and following prosecution. Our experience ensures our clients receive the best possible advice when faced with such circumstances.


Increasing use of technology makes it more and more likely to be accused of a road traffic offence than it has been in the past. Even if you choose to plead guilty, by using our experts to present your case you can improve your prospects of avoiding, or reducing any penalty.


We have a proven track record in pursing the appeals of those who have been convicted whilst represented by other firms because we don't give up and we provide our clients with an unparelleled service.

Sexual Offences

Rustem Guardian specialise in defending those accused and convicted of sexual offences and we will build a team suitable to your needs. We recognise the pressure and stigma for those accused of such offences and the impact it can have on families. Our approach is sympathetic to all involved and we are discrete and sensitive when advising our clients.
