Cheshire’s leading divorce, family law and wills solicitors Sinclair Law has expanded with the acquisition of Bramhall-based Nicola J Tiernan Solicitors. The acquisition means Sinclair Law gains a talented new consultant, as well as a physical foothold in Stockport.
A well-respected solicitor with almost 30 years of experience, Nicola Tiernan joins Sinclair Law as another family law and divorce expert.
The acquisition is expected to be successful in part because Nicola shares many of the same values that have helped Co-Directors Lucy Hart and Sandra Sinclair grow Sinclair Law into one of the most highly-regarded family law practices in Cheshire.
With physical offices right in the heart of Bramhall, Nicola J Tiernan Solicitors will now become a division of Sinclair Law.
Sinclair Law Co-Director Lucy Hart said: “We’ve worked alongside Nicki for many years now, and have always been impressed by her work-ethic and commitment to doing the right thing and getting the best results for her clients. We share the same ethos, the same client base and the same high level of service that you don’t get from the big law firms.
“As our practice has grown, we find ourselves taking on more and more work each year. Having another highly experienced consultant in our stable means we can better support our clients over a bigger geographical area.”
Sinclair Law and Nicola Tiernan have both been long-term proponents of the ‘collaborative approach’ to family law, where parties try to work together as much as possible and reach a resolution without the stress and expense of going to court.
Nicola Tiernan said: “I am a committed alternative dispute resolution practitioner and feel very strongly that the interests of clients and children are not best served by the traditional processes of the law.
“I believe that a dignified, client-led, child-focused separation is not only achievable but is what every client should expect from their solicitors.”
Sinclair Law’s physical expansion means that the practice can better serve clients in Bramhall and across Stockport. Sinclair Law is proud to specialise in bespoke areas of law that we know are highly important to our clients, including divorce, financial settlements, arrangements for children, civil partnerships, wills and probate.
Sinclair Law is also proud to offer specialist LGBT+ family legal services, which are led by solicitor Suzanne Moore. Suzanne is a member of the UK and Ireland LGBT Family Law Institute and has developed a close working relationship with the LGBT Foundation in Manchester, where she has run a legal surgery for 15 years.
Meanwhile, Polish-speaking Agata Napora recently completed her training contract with Sinclair Law and is now working to boost access to legal services for a growing base of Polish clients across Cheshire and South Manchester.
In time, the Nicola J Tiernan Solicitors brand will be fully absorbed into Sinclair Law. In the meantime, however, the Woodford Road office has had new joint branding fitted above the door.
Sinclair Law is still offering virtual consultations and case reviews through its Wilmslow and Bramhall offices, with face-to-face meetings available by request. For advice or to learn more about our services, speak to a member of the team today. Call: 01625 526 222.
