Nicola, who lives in Hale Barns, originally qualified into fraud litigation. Her experience in this field means she has a particular aptitude for high value and multi-asset financial disputes, where there may be a concern surrounding undisclosed income or assets.


 Nicola recently acted in one of the top three, highest value divorces in the UK, with a net asset base in excess of £150m.

 McAlister Family Law, with offices in Manchester city centre, throughout the North West, and London, is part of the Manchester-based Beyond Professional Services Group; one of the very few firms in the country that specialises not only in divorce and family disputes, but also in children law. 

Nicola said: “This is a very exciting move is for me. Amanda’s reputation as a family lawyer is outstanding, and I really wanted to work with her and her team as they build something very special in the industry.”

Managing partner, Amanda McAlister, said: ’We are delighted to welcome Nicola to the team. She is highly regarded for her family law expertise, and her particular skill set complements our already extensive family law offering.”
