Vienna Kang Advocates is a niche firm specialising in the defence of serious crime. We are frequently instructed to represent and defend in extremely serious cases, involving some of the most notorious crimes prosecuted in recent times and quite often cases attracting national notoriety.
As a modern and dynamic firm, we embrace the latest technology and cutting-edge practices in our strive for excellence. We pride ourselves on thorough and robust defence case preparation, working hard to formulate novel points to enable us to articulate powerful and compelling submissions on behalf of those whom we represent.
We are fortunate to benefit from a solid team of talent comprising some of the best Lawyers who are eminent within their profession. We are continually expanding and are now seeking to develop that team further by the addition of a Crown Court Litigator with Police Station Accreditation.
The successful candidate shall be expected to prepare and litigate complex and serious criminal cases before the Crown Court along with managing a heavy caseload. The role shall also require police station attendance. This is an extremely challenging and demanding but rewarding role.
The most suitable candidate should ideally have a minimum of 10 years’ experience, be able to work with minimum supervision, use their own initiative and be self-disciplined. The successful candidate must be an extremely able, capable, and robust individual. The successful candidate must hold the Police Station Accreditation and be prepared to participate within the firm’s out-of-hour’s police station rota.
The nature of criminal defence requires considerable mental dexterity. It regularly involves working unsociable hours: evening and weekends to represent suspects detained at the police station, balancing competing demands and working under pressure. Accordingly, this role requires an individual who is entirely committed and dedicated to criminal defence, takes pride in their work and is passionate about what they do and the results that they achieve. Ideally the successful candidate shall have an excellent reputation within the criminal defence market for providing robust representation and they ought to have their own client following.
