An experienced family lawyer who has a strong focus on complex cases involving children has rejoined Thursfields Solicitors as an associate director.
Hannah Nicholls first worked at Thursfields as a solicitor in August 2016 and was promoted to associate before joining Shoosmiths in Birmingham as an associate in its family team in January 2019.
She has worked in the sector for more than 10 years across the West Midlands and advises on all aspects of relationship breakdown.
This includes divorce, dividing financial assets, cohabitation and wealth protection, but her particular expertise is dealing with complex children matters, including those with international elements.
Shane Miller, a director at Thursfields and head of Family Law, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Hannah back to the company, where I’m sure she will become a major asset.
Family Law Team
“We have built a strong team of family law specialists based across our regional network who have a wide range of experience and expertise to advise clients facing all sorts of issues.
“Hannah’s expertise on complex matters involving children is of particular relevance in today’s world and gives Thursfields an extra strength when dealing with separation and divorce.”
Hannah is an active member of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers, and sits on both the YRes (Young Resolution) West Midlands Committee and the national Parenting After Parting Committee, which aims to help parents find effective ways to resolve children issues.
Hannah said: “I’m really pleased to be rejoining Thursfields as I enjoy the firm’s strong team ethos.
“This is very much a forward-thinking firm, with ambitious plans for growth, and I was attracted by the fact it has a wealth of opportunities both internally and externally.
“I’m looking forward to working with my new colleagues to develop the reach and profile of the Family Law team, building on the excellent reputation it has achieved to date.”
