Lee Hughes

Call To The Bar: 2006

Lee joined Lincoln House Chambers in 2017 having been a solicitor since 2009. Before that Lee worked in general crime for four years.

Lee represents clients in the Criminal Courts, Coroners’ Courts, the Medical Practitioner’s Tribunal Service and County Courts. Lee advises clients in health and safety, environmental, trading standards, fraud, general crime (including POCA), road traffic and professional disciplinary cases.

He has been instructed in matters of national significance, including the Gosport Independent Panel Review and a Public Inquiry following a fire involving multiple fatalities.

Lee is a member of the following practice teams in Chambers: Health & Safety; Business Crime and Financial Regulation; Regulatory; Criminal Law; Inquests; and, Professional Discipline. These areas of law are very much complementary, allowing Lee to draw on expertise in one area of practice to inform his work in another, to the benefit of the client.

He is authorised to represent members of the public under the ‘Public Access’ scheme and is a level 1 CPS Prosecutor. He is also a member of the Health and Safety Executive’s independent Disputes Panel for Fee for Intervention (FFI).

Prior to joining Lincoln House, Lee worked in some of the most highly regarded health and safety and regulatory crime teams in the country. His practice was strengthened by his academic achievements, obtaining a Distinction in a Master’s Degree in Health and Safety and Environmental Law in 2012, and a First in a Fire Safety Law postgraduate course in 2013 (during employment). He was recommended by Legal 500 for his health and safety work as a solicitor, most recently in 2017.
