About Us

Holmes & Hills is a large regional firm of solicitors with five offices across Essex and Suffolk, 43 lawyers across eight specialist departments and over 100 staff. In recent years the firm has grown significantly, opening three offices and doubling the size of several of its teams to meet increased demand from existing and new clients.

We are recognised by The Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners - two independent directories of the UK’s top law firms - as being a leading supplier of legal services in the region. These accreditations give our clients the confidence that the legal advice and representation they receive from Holmes & Hills is some of the best available.

The firm and its employees are closely linked to the communities that surround our five offices in Braintree, Halstead, Sudbury, Tiptree and Coggeshall. We raise many thousands of pounds for charity each year through the popular charity bike ride, which attracts several hundred riders, as well as many other staff initiatives.

We organise free events for clients, providing them with updates on various areas of the law and guiding them on the implications of these changes for their business or personal circumstances. These events cover Planning Law, Landlord & Tenant Law, Commercial Property Law and Employment Law. Holmes & Hills also operates various networking events for business leaders, providing them with the opportunity to discuss localised issues and hear from speakers including local Members of Parliament.

Our clients range from businesses whose brands are recognised and sold around the world and local authorities across the region, through to families and first-time home buyers.
