Chris Wills LLB (Hons)


I am a corporate and commercial law specialist with over 15 years’ experience.

The clients that I work with range from start-ups and owner-managed businesses to multi-million-pound companies with a global reach.

I have a particular interest in the renewable energy sector (particularly developers of, and investors in, wind, solar and anaerobic digestion projects).

I am recognised by national legal guides, The Legal 500 and Chambers UK. I am also a member of GFirst LEP’s business members’ group.
