Toby Walker

Director and Head of Dispute Resolution

I am a Solicitor Advocate and Head of Dispute Resolution at Hedges. 

I advise on most aspects of Civil, Chancery and Commercial disputes. I have developed a specialism in the area of trusts of land, including constructive or resulting trusts, and claims of proprietary estoppel. 

My clients include multinational organisations, SMEs, commercial landlords, independent schools and private individuals.

I am a member of the Property Litigation Association, Solicitors’ Association of Higher Court Advocates and am an ADR Group Accredited Civil & Commercial Mediator. 

With a passion for encouraging the next generation of lawyers, I have the pleasure of running the Hedges Law Essay Competition in which students aged between 15 - 18 compete for an Internship.

With an artist mother and an engineer father, l am a blend of both. Understanding structure and using creativity is key to resolving disputes effectively. I would describe myself as a 'people person', and understanding people is pretty important too! I love my job: being a lawyer really does allow me to make a difference in people's lives; the pen certainly is mightier than the sword. 

ADR Group Panel Mediator

I am an accredited mediator and sit on the ADR Panel of mediators. More information can be found by clicking the following link:
