Edmund Conybeare is a highly regarded and experienced specialist Regulatory and Criminal lawyer who is passionate about defending his client’s interests.
He trained in Leeds with a Legal Aid firm and subsequently spent three entertaining years as a specialist magistrates court advocate, gaining valuable experience in the cut and thrust of criminal defence. He subsequently moved to Shulmans LLP where he developed and led the firm’s first regulatory practice, and since 2011 has worked from home in Guiseley as a self-employed solicitor consultant.
Edmund’s practice includes health and safety, environmental issues, product liability, road traffic cases and general criminal work. He also has expertise in road transport cases, having prosecuted for VOSA (now the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) for nine years. He represents a wide range of clients, from large companies to individuals, and seeks to leave no stone unturned in their defence.
Edmund has established and runs The North Eastern Regulatory Lawyers (NERL) group for regulatory Counsel and Solicitors, and has been described by two leading Queen’s Counsel as a ‘first class solicitor,’ and ‘exceptionally hardworking and determined in the pursuit of his client’s interests.’
Edmund is married with three daughters, and in his spare time enjoys music, the gym, war history, hill walking, and on a more serious note, campaigning on human rights issues, especially the death penalty.
