About Us

HB Public Law is a dynamic and fast growing public sector legal practice, working with some of the leading authorities in the UK.

Our shared service model means that authorities benefit from lawyers who are passionate about public service and have deep specialist knowledge and experience – all delivered at highly affordable rates. We make public money go further.

Formed in 2012, initially servicing Harrow and Barnet councils, we have expanded in the space of five years to work with five authorities and one waste authority and have over 150 lawyers based at our offices in Harrow and Aylesbury.

We are ambitious about our development and embrace innovation and change. We are a founder member of the forward thinking London Boroughs’ Legal Alliance, have created the first private/public partnership of its kind with private sector law firm Bevan Brittan and have an ABS licence to enable us to work for private sector organisations.
