A new documentary series will delve into some of the country's most high-profile criminal cases taken on by a Glasgow legal team. 

City-based lawyer Aamer Anwar has worked on some major cases during his career including the Ice Cream Wars appeal, the perjury trial of Tommy Sheridan and the Lockerbie Appeal.

Now an eight-part series will offer full access to the office of Aamer and his legal team as they navigate a demanding caseload to deliver justice to families, no matter the case.

Aamer said: “My firm is involved in some of the most high-profile cases in Scotland as well as the United Kingdom, but no matter how big, small, controversial or complex the case, my team gives it everything and we always fight to win.

"We're unlike any other law firm out there and I’m delighted to open our doors so that viewers can see for themselves the inner workings of the Scottish legal system, how we operate and what inspires us to fight for justice.” 

Their current work includes representing bereaved families in the Covid inquiry, and the Public Inquiry for the family of Sheku Bayoh who died whilst in police custody.

They also represent the families of Katie Allan and William Lindsay, who died by suicide in prison; and the mother of Emma Caldwell, who was strangled in woodland in 2005 aged 27. 

The eight-episode series is commissioned by BBC Scotland and produced by STV Studios, and production is currently underway in Glasgow.

Craig Hunter, creative director of Factual at STV Studios, said: “This series promises high stakes and high stress as we follow Aamer and his tight-knit team, who are constantly fighting to stay on top of high-profile caseloads. 

"Every episode will offer an unfiltered, privileged glimpse into this fast-paced world at this crucial time for Scottish legal practices.

'We’re thrilled to be bringing this exciting new series to BBC Scotland.” 

David Harron, commissioning executive of Factual at BBC Scotland added: “We are really excited to have secured access to Aamer Anwar & Co for this new series. 

"Aamer is one of Scotland’s most high-profile figures and this promises to provide the audience with a fascinating look behind the scenes of both the legal world in Scotland and the workplace that he operates in.” 

The programme will be shown on BBC and iPlayer.
