Nicki Mitchell promoted to partner at Lupton Fawcett

Family lawyer, Nicki Mitchell has been promoted to partner at Yorkshire law firm, Lupton Fawcett.

Nicki has practiced as a solicitor since 1994, gaining specialist accreditation from Resolution, the influential association of family lawyers, in 2001. She became the first lawyer in York to qualify as a collaborative family lawyer in 2005 and also practises as a family mediator.  Nicki is rated in national legal directories Chambers and the Legal 500.

Nicki specialises in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown, particularly complex cases involving family businesses, multiple properties and complicated pension arrangements.  She also puts these skills to good use in drafting and advising on nuptial and cohabitation agreements designed to avoid expensive litigation when relationships end.

Commenting on her promotion, Nicki said: “It is always good to be recognised by your peers for the work that you do so I am proud to have been promoted to partner.

Lupton Fawcett has an extremely strong family law team which has an enviable reputation across our offices in Leeds, York and Sheffield. I am therefore looking forward to using my new position to help build on our success.”

Speaking about the promotion, Chris Burns, head of Lupton Fawcett’s family law department said: “Nicki has a strong reputation for being tough but fair and works very hard with her clients to identify and achieve what they need.

She believes very strongly in the importance of identifying the right way for each individual client to get where they need to be.  She practices mediation and collaborative family law, as well as the more traditional methods of dispute resolution, and so is ideally placed to guide and support clients through one of the most difficult times in their lives.”

Away from work, Nicki is a school governor, Vice Chair of the South Bank Multi Academy Trust in York and a former Trustee of the York Citizens Advice Bureau.
