About us

THB operates an extensive Crime and Regulatory Law practice and specialises in defending those facing Proceedings before the Magistrates' Courts, Crown Courts and Courts Martial.

We provide Legal Advice and Representation from initial Interview through to Final Hearing in respect of investigations and Prosecutions commenced by the Police, Crown Prosecution Service and other enforcing authorities.

Our dedicated Team offers wide-ranging expertise across a range of specialist areas, from white-collar business crimes and serious and complex fraud to minor road traffic offences. We are extremely experienced in defending in major crimes and frauds and have the largest in house Crown Court advocacy team in the region.

Our Criminal and Regulatory work is recognised by two leading guides to the Nation's top law firms; Chambers & Partners and Legal 500. With experienced criminal lawyers placed at all of our five offices within the region we are able to respond efficiently and effectively in dealing with the most pressing and difficult criminal matters.

In addition the firm undertakes regulatory and disciplinary work on behalf of the Health and Safety Executive, the Police Federation and the Security Industry Authority. In these areas we have significant experience and expertise. While the majority of our work is publicly funded under the Legal Aid arrangements we also deal with regular Private instructions for those falling outside of the financial criteria.

Together with our long association with criminal litigation we offer specialist Family Law advice and representation, dealing with all aspects of relationship breakdown, including financial claims between separating couples, divorce, co-habitee issues, domestic violence and children, whether through the Courts or in a collaborative way. We can advise you on cohabitation and Pre-Nuptial Agreements. In addition to matters funded on a private basis we are also now authorised by the Legal Services Commission to offer legally aided help. Our family team is headed by Karen Taylor, who is a National Committee member of Resolution, the specialist organisation for family law professionals.

Our Conveyancing Department deals with all aspects of residential property including property sales, purchases, re-mortgages and equity transfers, handling large volumes of high value freehold and leasehold property both locally and in Central London. We also have extensive knowledge in respect of newly built properties nationwide, offering a professional and friendly service to Sellers, Buyers and Property Developers alike. Everyone needs a Will and we can prepare one for you at a competitive rate. We also deal with the administration of estates upon the death of a loved one, relieving you of that burden at a difficult time.

With five offices throughout Essex and Suffolk, the Firm prides itself on providing a personal, efficient and cost effective service to all Clients.
