Local law firm grows Crime department

City law firm, HC Solicitors have made 2 new appointments to their Crime practice this year. A successful part of the firm’s comprehensive range of legal services, the Crime department offers a number of valuable services to local businesses including prosecutions for statutory agencies, defence for businesses facing prosecution and defence for key personnel charged with motoring offences.

Joining the firm are Angela Holland, an experienced criminal solicitor and Elizabeth Webb, a former barrister who has recently cross-qualified as a solicitor.
Angela joined the firm from Huntingdon-based firm Kirkpatricks where she trained, qualified and ultimately became a partner in 2005. Angela undertakes all aspects of Criminal Law and has experience in both defence and prosecution work (having prosecuted for Government agencies such as the DSS & CSA). Her valuable skills in this area add to the team’s strengths in both prosecuting and defending businesses who find themselves facing criminal charges.

Elizabeth is a trained barrister who worked as a legal adviser for Her Majesty’s Court Services until joining HC this year. During her professional career, Elizabeth has gained extensive knowledge and experience in all aspects of criminal law and procedure, dealing also with many civil applications such as Closure orders.

Angela and Elizabeth join the existing team of Andrew Cave, Simon Milburn and John Henson. Andrew recently passed his Higher Rights exam, allowing him to apply to the law society for the right to provide representation in the higher courts. While other city law firms are scaling down or dropping their Crime practice, hc solicitors are continuing to grow this vital area of their legal services, offering a full range of criminal defence, prosecution and advice.
