Educated at Bristol University Chris Bowles qualified in 1977 having served his articles with top Norwich firm Mills & Reeve. He moved to Great Yarmouth in 1978 and quickly became a partner in a local firm before leaving and setting up his own firm in 1989. The firm became exclusively crime from 1993. Chris set up and administered the Great Yarmouth Duty Solicitor Scheme from its outset and during his long career there is very little in the sphere of criminal litigation that Chris has not experienced first hand.
Chris retains a consultancy role in the firm able to offer support by virtue of his long and varied career and when required his advocacy skills at Court.
