Chloe Hartnell



Chloe is head of the Criminal Law team at our Camberwell office.

I specialise in trial advocacy.  In addition, I undertake criminal litigation and have dealt with many serious cases including allegations of murder, firearms, rape, fraud and drug supply.  Some of my notable cases are:

Fergus, R (on the application of) v Southampton Crown Court [2008] EWHC 3273  and R V M [2009] Both cases are successful Judicial Reviews of the decisions of Crown Court judges to withdraw bail from men who had been complying with bail conditions for months. The High Court quashed these decisions on the grounds of irrationality and a failure to give reasons.

R v Taylor [2001] EWCA Crim 2263  an appeal by a Rastafarian against a conviction for possessing cannabis with intent to supply on the grounds that the cannabis was for religious purposes.


After studying at the London School of Economics I went on to work at Hartnells solicitors moving from trainee to solicitor and then partner with my late father Christopher Hartnell.  The firm has worked with the local community for over 25 years and earned the trust of our clients, who are happy to recommend us.
