About us

Hobbs Law was set up in 2011 by husband-and-wife team Mike and Louise Hobbs.

Mike and Louise met at Law School and even back then, each knew the areas of law that they had a desire and passion to practise.

After graduating Mike worked his way up the ranks of various property departments, became head of a property team in a mid-sized firm and acted as a consultant to various local authorities and commercial law practices.  He joined a regional corporate law firm as a senior commercial solicitor working as part of a team on large corporate projects and then acted as consultant solicitor heading up the commercial department of a Chichester firm.

Louise managed wills, probate and elderly client services at two firms before becoming a partner at a Chichester firm. Louise is a member of Solicitors For The Elderly, a national organisation of lawyers, committed to providing and promoting high-quality legal services for older people, their family and carers.

Having seen the way that ‘traditional’ solicitors firms worked, Mike and Louise were certain that they could make a difference to how legal services could be offered to personal and business clients and that’s how Hobbs Law came to be established.

From the way that they think about, and care about their clients, to being committed to a low carbon footprint, which includes membership of the Legal Sector Alliance (the environmental division of the Law Society), to offering extended opening hours and home visits that allow busy clients to make appointments in the evenings and at weekends, Hobbs Law makes every effort to be a different kind of law firm.
