Chris Jolly

Partner – Head of Civil and Commercial Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Chris has worked in the field of Civil & Commercial Litigation in private practice for over 35 years and was a partner with Middleton & Upsall of Warminster and Westbury before the firm merged in 2016 with DBB solicitors of Andover and Stockbridge to practice as Middletons solicitors.   He is one of a small number of Solicitors who hold the qualification of “Solicitor Advocate (civil)” enabling him to appear in the Higher Civil Courts as an Advocate.  Regularly he conducts trials in both the County Court and High Court.  He says “as an experienced Advocate I understand what needs to be “at your fingertips” to present a successful case in Court, and that skilled preparation of a case in its early stages is essential”.

His tactics and strategic advice are instinctive and innovative. However, his real strength is in his unnerving ability to forcefully put clients’ cases using his own “best points plan” coupled with a strategy to ensure a successful outcome.

He is a skilled negotiator, and has conducted many Mediations on behalf of clients. He is a trained Civil Mediator.
