About Backhouse

Backhouse Solicitors is a modern and forward thinking solicitors firm offering high levels of expertise and service to individuals, businesses and their owners.  We are based in Chelmsford, Essex with clients across the South East of England.

A Modern Firm with a Great History

Started in 2005 by Minal Backhouse, an expert in employment law, we grew quickly and soon established ourselves as one of the most successful and largest employment law teams in Essex, with a track record of representing employees and employers in Employment Tribunals all over the UK.  In 2009 we opened our debt recovery department and now work with clients from small businesses up to large multinationals helping them improve their cashflow.

In June 2015 Backhouse Solicitors merged with Duffield Stunt Solicitors, doubling in size and enabling us to help clients with a much wider range of legal problems.  Duffield Stunt itself was created from the merger of Duffields (formed in 1799) and Stunt & Son (formed in 1825) so we can now trace our origins back over more than two centuries of service to the people and businesses of Essex.  We believe this history is important and we have kept the Duffield Stunt name for our sister business Duffield Stunt Estate Agents Ltd who are based in the same offices in Chelmsford.

Combining People, Knowledge and Technology to Serve our Clients

A 200 year history is a great achievement, but our ethos is one of continuous improvement and finding new ways to help our clients.  We invest in our people to make sure they are the best, and our technology to help us service our clients’ needs as efficiently as possible.  In 2014 we launched our client web portal which allows our clients to see their cases online and keep up to date.

Who Can we Help?

Our existing client base includes a diverse range of businesses in the private and public sector, from sole traders to multinationals, as well as charities, voluntary organisations and individuals.  Many of our clients have come to us through recommendations and you can view many testimonials on our home page and Testimonials page.  We firmly believe that every client, large or small, deserves a personal service, a fast response and clear, value for money advice.  We don’t believe in call centres and scripts and we will always put your interests first.
