Chris Hart

I joined the firm in 1986 and became a partner in 1992. Initially specialising in commercial litigation I became the firm’s Managing Partner in 1999 and am now Wollens’ Chief Executive. I have specialist expertise in licensing and gambling work and in the field of commercial contract drafting.

I am the Honorary Secretary of the Devon and Somerset Law Society and a past President of the Devon and Exeter Law Society. In March 2016 I was awarded the Leader/Law Manager of the Year at the inaugural Devon and Somerset Law Society awards. I am the immediate past Chair of the Law Society’s Law Management Section and continue to sit on the LMS Committee.

I have a keen interest in the tourism industry of the English Riviera and Devon generally.  I am the former Chair of the English Riviera Tourism Company and now sit on the board of the English Riviera BID.  I am a member of the Executive of the Torbay Business Forum, and a member of the Devon and Cornwall Committee of Somerset County Cricket Club.

In my leisure time I am an enthusiastic follower of football (supporting West Ham United and Torquay United) and cricket (being President of South Devon Cricket Club), and also enjoy gin tasting!
