Hefin Archer-Williams

Partner (FCILEx), Head of Cardiff Office

Having had a broad training, I quickly found my passion was dealing with disputes. With every matter I strive to acquire an in-depth insight into a company or individual’s world by listening carefully to their personal and commercial objectives, before explaining the legal and practical steps they can take to resolve their issue. This is personally rewarding, whilst also protecting clients at times of distress and uncertainty and therefore allowing a collaborative approach to managing their risk and avoiding litigation wherever possible. With this approach I strive to provide the highest quality service and build strong relationships with my clients. I often act on contract negotiations, commercial disputes – on energy related issues – and disputes over wills and legacies. I also work with individuals, such as solicitors and accountants, facing disciplinary hearings relating to their professional bodies.

Born and brought up in Wales, my first language was Welsh. I am, like many Welshmen passionate about sport and have been fortunate to be able to use my skills to assist professional sports players in contract negotiations and disputes, as well as sitting on the boards/committees of groups such as Disability Sport Wales, Welsh Badminton, Welsh Basketball, various charities relating to sport and being the honorary lawyer to Team Wales (Melbourne Commonwealth Games).
