What can Nick do for you?
Nick is a specialist family solicitor with over 25 years of experience and heads up our national family law team across the firm. His expertise is based around complex financial cases involving family businesses, farms and trusts. He also has considerable experience in the drafting of pre and post marital agreements, cohabitation disputes and private Children Act proceedings.
Supporting your ambitions
Most clients wish to reach a negotiated settlement that is fair to both sides. Nick knows that you need to be listened to in how your case is approached. As a firm, we do not believe in a one size fits all approach. What is right for one client is not right for another. Some cases can be resolved through negotiation, mediation or collaborative law; others need the involvement of the court. As far as Nick is concerned, a great outcome for the client is one in which they are fully involved, having received clear and straightforward advice.
