Practice Overview: 

Edd Hetherington is a specialist crime and regulatory practitioner. Having previously retained a complementary dual practice in crime and family law, Edd predominantly dealt with care proceedings linked to criminal prosecutions, disputes over residence and contact and applications for ancillary relief. This experience has given Edd a particular understanding of the interrelationship between the criminal and family jurisdictions, enabling him to offer practical, meaningful and most importantly sensitive advice in the most grave of criminal proceedings.


Before coming to the Bar, Edd was a university law lecturer. He remains involved in delivering lectures to groups of legal professionals and is happy to write and deliver seminars tailored to particular organisations. He is involved in advocacy training, supporting postgraduate students at UWE, and is a regular speaker for a national commercial professional development agency, providing accredited CPD and training to legal professionals from across the country.
