Welcome to Edward Hayes LLP - Solicitors and Advocates
We are an internationally recognised law firm based in Fleet Street and at the Guildhall in Central London, Deansgate in Manchester and throughout the South of England with excellent links to all major centres.
Perhaps best known for our success in high profile litigation, the firm is also highly regarded in other areas. We are able to provide support and expertise in most areas of business and private life. Our lawyers are highly ranked in their specialist fields and we have won a number of awards, above all we are committed to prioritising the needs of our clients.
The majority of our lawyers are trained litigators which means they are natural fighters. Our training in litigation and experience of actual court disputes means that in many arenas our lawyers have a natural and distinct advantage over contemporaries who may have never appeared in a contested court case. We have a superb record of which we are very proud.
Helen Fitzsimons represented a Mother totally exonerated in a non-accidental injury / baby-shaking case heard in the West London Family Court. This is a ground breaking case as it is the first reported case where running with a baby has been found to have been the likely cause of bleeding. The Mother and Father had been falsely accused of shaking their baby after the baby had become unwell and admitted to hospital. The baby was found to have brain and retinal bleeding and the parents were accused of inflicting these injuries. After thorough investigation and representation the parents were exonerated and baby immediately returned home http://www.bailii.org/ew/cases/EWFC/OJ/2014/B188.html
Edward Hayes LLP are one of the firms that have been at the forefront at radical new and cutting edge actions within litigation proceedings and general legal work. Our work with polygraph testers began some 10 years ago and although there are inherent difficulties in relation to admissibility, results have been persuasive if not compelling in certain cases. In addition to polygraph testing, we also recognise the importance of expert witnesses and correct preparation for witnesses with regard to such simple and obvious issues such as cross examination techniques, familiarity with court layouts and what to expect. Many of these issues are things that have been promoted in the US for many years, however, we are alert to any possible advantage that can be obtained in order to effectively defend and promote our clients’ interests.
