New series The Firm follows Aamer Anwar and team

A new series follows solicitor Aamer Anwar and his team of lawyers.

Across eight episodes, The Firm follows Mr Anwar as he embarks on the busiest year of his career. Working across three public inquiries, he represents the family of Sheku Bayoh – described as “Scotland’s George Floyd” – at the public inquiry into his death in police custody, as well as the Scottish Covid Bereaved at both the Scottish Covid-19 Inquiry and the UK Covid-19 Inquiry, the biggest public inquiry in British history.

But amidst the pressure and public scrutiny, The Firm also explores Mr Anwar’s personal story and the trauma that drives him, as well as his close relationship with his three children. It also showcases the camaraderie of his loyal and hard-working team, all united by one goal: to challenge injustice at every turn.

The Firm will land on BBC iPlayer and broadcast on BBC Scotland next month.
