DARLINGTON-BASED Latimer Hinks Solicitors has been boosted by a new qualification for one of its partners.
Nicola Neilson has been made a Fellow of the Agricultural Law Association (ALA), following periods of residential study and an examination.
This qualification builds on Latimer Hinks’ existing specialist team in this field of law, with senior partner Tim Haggie, and partners Anne Elliott and Neil Stevenson also being highly rated in agricultural law.
Tim has twice been cited in the Legal 500 publication for his work in agriculture and estates. ALA members Anne and Neil have also been recommended in the directory.
Nicola’s fellowship adds to her existing membership of the ALA.
She is also a member of the Council of the Tees Valley Law Society, of which she is also a past president and the society’s 2011 lawyer of the year.
Senior partner Tim Haggie said: “Nicola’s expertise in agricultural law is a real bonus to Latimer Hinks as it enhances the team in an important area for the rural communities.
“We are very proud of the firm’s continued ability to service the legal needs of the rural community knowledgeably and professionally.”
