Henry Hood’s six-partner team at Hunters is known for punching above its weight, whether that’s in the range of clients it acts for or the level of cases it handles. ‘Hunters blends the old and the new,’ he says. ‘We are the fifth- oldest law firm in the country and have acted for some families for generations. However, we aim to provide a modern, one-stop service.’ A specialist in landed estates, Hood has recently been involved in ‘kickstarting discussions in a high-value case which ended up in a favourable negotiated settlement where a full-blown trial seemed inevitable’. He has also reached ‘a very inventive deal’ to settle a matter involving a long-term lease of commercial warehouse premises.
