I joined Nash & Co in January 2018.  I was made to feel very welcome from day one and it did not take long to feel settled in my team and at the firm as a whole.  I am one of three solicitors in the Family Department. Our team leader, Eleanor Barber, encourages us to take a collegial approach to our caseloads to provide the best service to our clients.  We are lucky to be supported to be two excellent paralegals and two great secretaries who keep us on the straight and narrow!

The culture of the firm is one of inclusivity and for all members of staff to work together and in the same direction.  The partners are clear about their goals, the role each of us play and how we all share in the benefit of our achievements.

The location of the office is good – we are next to Beaumont Park and so a lovely lunchtime stroll is not far away and the office is close enough to the centre of Plymouth to easily be able to get to the Court etc.  There is a great social side to the firm as well.  The partners recently put on a summer barbeque for everyone and, as well as firm organised events, there is a staff committee who organise nights out.
