Chris Dobbs

Employment Solicitor


Chris is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and qualified in 2017 having spent two years training at a high street practice in Surrey dealing with a broad workload in a variety of practice areas. Chris chose to specialise in employment practice where he gained experience acting for employees and employers in both contentious and non-contentious matters including employment contracts, unfair dismissal, discrimination claims and settlement agreements.

Chris' work at Frettens includes acting for both employers and employees whether in dispute and tribunal work or providing HR advice to businesses. He has acted for clients working in social care, education and the military as well as private businesses on a wide variety of employment matters.


Away from the office you will usually find Chris either in front of a good rugby match (especially if Harlequins are playing and always for England) or in the kitchen where he’ll try his hand at almost anything. Having grown up in a town 60 miles inland but with a love of the coast he also takes every opportunity to be on the seafront now that he's here!
