Access to an expert when you need it

All of our legal work is carried out by either one or both of the two barristers in the partnership, or by our associate,  so you get a consistent and individual level of service that is not possible in large law firms.

There is no need to spend time or money going to a solicitor first.

If, in the course of your case, you need a particular specialist we will be able to source this expertise.

We’re not big, but we are clever

With a combined 45+ years of experience in the law our reputation is based on future results, client satisfaction and recommendation – not merely on our past successes.


Access to an Expert – when you need it

At H & D we believe in providing practical legal advice when you need it. There is no need to wait for your solicitor to find an available barrister or to wait the usual 28 days for that barrister to provide their written advice.

We pride ourselves on being as accessible as a solicitor, with the expertise of counsel.

We are authorised to conduct litigation – so you don’t need a solicitor – and can issue proceedings as well as appear as advocates in all courts in England & Wales including the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.

Hackett & Dabbs are authorised and regulated by the Bar Standards Board

Hire us on your terms

We’ll come and work at your offices or you can instruct us from ours. You can hire us for specific projects or cases, and we’re happy working alongside your existing in-house lawyers or individually.

Our fixed-price daily rate is extremely competitive and provides the best value for money in situations in which you will need us for several days or even weeks at a time.

We offer in-house training, the conduct of litigation, advisory work on compliance, regulatory matters and consultations on red flag areas of your business.
