Nicola Briggs

Position: Head of Private Client

Phone: 01625 547487



Nicola studied at Manchester University and Guildford College of Law. After qualifying she spent the next 32 years working for firms in West Yorkshire specialising in property transactions, Wills, Powers of Attorney, Court of Protection applications, Estate administration and Trusts.

Nicola joined Hilary Meredith’s in 2018 to head up the private client department. With her wealth of experience she is aware of how the family dynamics can change when someone dies or loses their mental capacity.

As an experienced property lawyer, and having seen how title to assets can pass outside the family or into the hands of the tax man or local authority, she can help families preserve their assets and plan for all eventualities through their Wills.

Nicola is accustomed to dealing sensitively with elderly relatives and looking into the needs of the family as a whole down through the generations. Her promise to you is not to sell you something you don’t need and to ensure that she is fully available and on hand to assist you through your matter, by phone, face to face or in person.

At Home:

In her spare time Nicola likes getting out on her Harley Davidson 1200cc Sportster.

When not cleaning the bike she enjoys visiting family, yoga and walking in the hills of Derbyshire. Now that the children have all left home she is making the most of it before grandchildren turn up!
