The ‘clickable logo’ on this website is a mandatory requirement of our regulator, the Solicitors Regulation Authority. It contains embedded software taking you to an SRA-hosted page which confirms that we are regulated and outlines what protections this regulated status provides. The SRA has stated that it does not have access, record or store any additional data such as IP addresses or page navigation behaviour, and that it does not collect data that would identify an individual. A solicitor specialising in technology is reported as saying that the system’s design involves the processing of data by technology supplier Yoshki, and does not ask users to give their consent. Yoshki’s system is based in turn on technology developed by Google which, he says, ‘is in the business of harvesting personal data’. Hatch Legal does not accept liability for use of the SRA clickable logo.

Hilary specialises in commercial property and more general commercial law.  Hilary is particularly well-known for her legal work with universities and colleges, but she also has extensive experience with many different types of business, including distribution, agriculture, retail, leisure, professional services and research.  Clients vary from individuals to PLCs - with organisations of all shapes and sizes in between.


Clients value Hilary for her personal approach to solving their problems. She really enjoys tackling difficult or unusual property issues. Examples include land which had no deeds; a site with access issues; a sub-lease longer than its head-lease; a flat where only the staircase was on the register of title and a sale which needed consent from almost 30 different sources.


Hilary qualified as a solicitor in 1994 and founded Hatch Legal in 2007. 


You should give Hilary a call if you are:

·             setting up a new small business

·             moving to new business premises or renewing your lease

·             a letting or managing agent

·             thinking of updating your standard terms and conditions

·             in need of training on contracts, property law, discrimination or other legal topics
