Nicky would always try to resolve matters without going to court if possible. She gives clear, precise and sympathetic advice recognising that family disputes can be extremely stressful. With five children of her own she is well aware of the realities of family life.
Nicky has a law degree from Cambridge, a Masters in Law from Warwick and a Masters in Development Management following her time abroad working in conflict situations. She is also trained in Counselling skills, a member of Resolution and the Family Mediation Council.
Her legal practice in the Cotswolds specialised in family work, particularly cases involving farms and family businesses. Some work highlights include:
• Representing a well-known musician with complex royalty issues, offshore property and festival income to resolve
• Acting for an author and BBC script writer in her dissolution of a civil partnership. Again complex royalty issues and French property
• Collaboratively resolved several complex family business cases
• Successfully appealed a County court judgement involving an £8m settlement with property in Iran
