Chris Brown

Senior Associate | Head of the Family Department


Chris Brown is the Head of the Family Department and a Senior Associate of the firm. Chris qualified as a Solicitor in 2009 and joined Hegarty LLP in 2012.

Chris is an expert in advising clients in respect of the division of assets when their marriage breaks down.  He is able to apply the years of experience he has gained representing clients in the Family Court in order to give an early indication of the likely outcome if their case does not settle.  This often helps clients avoid contested Court proceedings because they understand the realistic parameters for any negotiations.

Chris is a member of Resolution and holds their Accreditation as a Specialist Lawyer in Complex Financial Remedies (1 and 2) which covers modest assets and income cases as well as cases involving high to exceptional assets and income.  He has held that Accreditation continuously since 2015.

As a member of Resolution Chris is signed up to a Code of Practice that promotes a constructive approach to family issues.  For more information on what being a member of Resolution means visit

Outside of work Chris likes to keep fit, play football and tennis.  When he is not watching the Arsenal, he is spending time with his wife and young family.

Chris Brown was absolutely brilliant in court. He is a lovely man who did his job perfectly and with style.

Mr H. Family Client
