Our History

HB Public Law was formed in 2012 on the joining of Barnet and Harrow’s legal departments.

The practice now comprises over 150 lawyers, supported by a practice management team, a business support team and a finance team, with access to a dedicated legal library and comprehensive online legal research materials.

All staff work on a fully integrated Iken case management system, into which all documents are scanned, so that any fee earner can work on any matter, anywhere.

Since our inception we have undertaken work for a number of council’s and other public sector bodies. The current shared service authorities are the London boroughs of Harrow, Barnet, and Hounslow, Aylesbury Vale District Council, and Slough Borough Council.
