Nadia – who joined us as an Associate in 2017 and has 13 years of experience – graduated from the University of Derby in 2005 with a degree in business management and law. A year later, she attained a graduate diploma from De Montfort University before she completed her Legal Practice Course (LPC) in 2007.
Nadia has previously worked at Leicestershire-based law firm, Lawson West, qualifying as a solicitor in 2009 and progressing through the ranks to become head of Wills and Probate three years prior to joining Nelsons. Nadia specialises in Will drafting, inheritance tax planning, administration of estates and Powers of Attorney.
“I joined Nelsons to enhance my career to the next level while gaining more knowledge and experience. As a Senior Associate, my role has involved providing a great service to my clients, ensuring they are happy and supporting them through very difficult times.
“In my new position as Legal Director, I will focus on building an incredible team in the Leicester office. I am also excited for the opportunity to focus more on business development, building relationships and networking with other professionals.”
Nadia is one of six people to be promoted to the new Legal Director role at Nelsons.
Our Chief Executive, Stewart Vandermark, said:
“Legal Director is a new senior role we have introduced, which bridges the gap between Senior Associate and Partner and recognises individuals with excellent expertise in their field.
“We see the Legal Directors making valuable contributions to the future of the firm – actively participating in business planning sessions, being strong leaders and role models, and helping with the development of junior lawyers.
“Nadia’s contribution during her three years at the firm has been terrific and demonstrates the pedigree of our team to flourish in their specialist area. I am delighted to congratulate Nadia on her fully deserving promotion to Legal Director and look forward to seeing her further develop our expert Wills and Probate team.”
