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 recognised in agricultural law.
Tim has twice been cited in the prestigious Legal 500 publication for his work in agriculture and estates. ALA members Anne and Neil have also been referenced in the directory.
Nicolas Fellowship adds to her existing membership of the ALA, and she is also a member of the council of the Tees Valley Law Society, of which she is also a past President and Lawyer of the Year.
Senior Partner Tim Haggie said: "Nicolas expertise in agricultural law is a real bonus to Latimer Hinks Solicitors, as it adds further proven depth to our team in an area which is very important to the rural communities we serve.
"We are very proud of the firms ability to serve the rural community knowledgably and professionally, and this is a strong part of Latimer Hinks constantly growing presence in the region.
