“Amer Rahman knows his law very well and prepares his cases thoroughly and carefully. He has practised law here and in Pakistan. The thing I noticed most when I first met him was his enthusiasm and optimism born of a stubborn belief that he can make a difference through law. As a result he has had and continues to have some remarkable successes in rescuing cases which have become seemingly hopeless because of previous incompetent or corrupt representation of vulnerable clients. I want to commend Amer Rahman to his fellow practitioners, his opponents and the many vulnerable clients he takes under his wing.” – Ian McDonald QC
