BBC Scotland has announced a new documentary series following the life and work of internationally renowned Scottish lawyer Aamer Anwar.

This comes as the BBC revealed a first look at the hotly anticipated series coming to TV next month.

Of the new series, BBC Scotland said: "The Firm provides a captivating insight into the inner-workings of a high-profile and extremely high-pressured law firm, akin to a real-life version of hit US legal drama Suits – with the Manhattan setting swapped for Glasgow, where Aamer’s company is based."

The BBC added: "Across eight episodes, The Firm follows Aamer as he embarks on the busiest year of his career. Working across three public inquiries, Aamer 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."

Beyond his legal work, the show will also delve into Aamer Anwar's personal life, showing his close relationship with his three children as well as the personal experiences that drive him.
