Nick Southwell BA (Hons)
Nick is a member of our litigation and dispute resolution team and handles a wide variety of work for both commercial and private clients. This includes contractual disputes, landlord and tenant matters, property disputes and professional negligence claims. He is an accredited civil and commercial mediator.
His experience acting for private clients across a broad range of issues gives him an excellent insight into the emotional and financial cost of litigation. In his role as solicitor and mediator he has developed a particularly strong understanding of the importance of a sensitive and respectful approach to resolving disputes.
Nick is valued for the trust he inspires in clients through his calm and creative attitude, clarity of thought and ability to see to the heart of a problem. He aims to simplify apparently complicated issues in order to help the parties resolve them. He is often commended for his common sense approach to problems, underpinned by a keen understanding of legal and strategic issues.
National legal guide, Legal 500, recommends Nick purely on merit, commenting that he is ‘a safe pair of hands’ who is singled out for his ‘practical and commercial approach to litigation’.
Nick qualified in 2006 and worked for a law firm on the south coast before moving to Gloucestershire. He joined us in 2014 from Tayntons LLP.
