Nicola Manning has been practising as a solicitor for well over three decades, in various types and sizes of practice in central London and the suburbs. For 20 years, between 1997 and 2017, Nicola specialised in professional and risk management and compliance at two well- known practices and was also the first Chair of the Law Society’s Law Management Section, elected to that position in 1999.
Nicola was a Law Society Council Member representing Croydon and North Kent, for 7 years during which time she was also appointed to the Law Society’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Committee and the then Legal Affairs and Policy Board. Nicola was also a Professional Deputy with responsibility for multiple high value fund portfolios and was on the Court of Protection External Deputies Panel for several years.
With five children, three grandchildren (currently) and business interests in West Africa occupying part of her busy schedule, Nicola has returned in recent years to private client practice, where she assists and supports families dealing with bereavement and loss and also assists individuals and families in the preparation of sensible lifetime planning in the form of Wills, Trusts and LPAs, with a particular emphasis on identifying and bequeathing one’s digital asset base.
