I am hoping to grow the Derby team and expand the success of the department.  I am lucky to work with such an excellent team who always put their all into their work, are committed to client care, and are supportive of each other.”

Diane has a high level of expertise as a Child Care Solicitor and has been with the firm since 2017.  She is a Member of Resolution and the Law Society’s Children Panel Accreditation Scheme, meaning that she can represent children, as well as parents and other family members in care proceedings and other related proceedings. She is dedicated to the Child Care Department, not only running her own substantial case load, but being heavily involved in the training and development of staff.

Speaking on her appointment, Diane said: “I am delighted to have been appointed as LLP Member in Elliot Mather’s Child Care Department. I’m looking forward to what the future brings for the department and future successes. I feel lucky to be working within such a brilliant team who are dedicated to providing expert assistance to those going through Care Proceedings.”

Daniel joined Elliot Mather in 2021 to head up the Residential Conveyancing Team in their Nottingham office. In his relatively short time with the firm, Daniel has dealt with an unprecedented high number of referrals for residential conveyancing.  It is hoped that under Daniel’s steerage the team at Nottingham will go from strength to strength and become a key element of their strategic development in Nottingham.

Daniel said: “I am very happy, and grateful, to have accepted the offer of partnership and to be appointed as an LLP Member at Elliot Mather LLP. I am very much looking forward to what the future has to hold, and being part of the ongoing success and development of the Residential Property Department in Nottingham.”
