I was a family law solicitor for 23 years and set up Nicola Williams & Co in 2001. I am based in Didsbury in Greater Manchester.
For many years I covered a broad spectrum of contested family law work but in recent years I have moved away from the adversarial nature of court based work and now focus entirely on helping people record their agreements in a legally binding way.
Most agreements are related to the division of their assets on separation or divorce. Others may, for example, create a record of ownership of a property when the legal title at the land registry does not show the whole picture – perhaps if a property is owned by cohabitants in unequal shares or where a parent has made a direct contribution to a deposit.
Please note that I am no longer a practicing solicitor. I am however, still a family law mediator.
