When a relationship breaks down, reaching an agreement on vital matters such as property, children and financial assets can be particularly challenging. Due to the sensitive nature of family issues, it is easy for disagreements to escalate into bitterly fought court disputes if action is not taken early enough. This period of uncertainty can also significantly impact the lives of your children if you have any, which is why it’s important to seek advice from a trusted family law professional as soon as the decision has been made to divorce. At Fishers, we pride ourselves in our ability to help clients through the divorce process with minimal stress and time involved. Together, you and your dedicated family law solicitor will work to secure an outcome that meets your financial and day-to-day needs; using our strength in negotiation to protect your interests throughout.
Whether it is to let or to live in, property matters to people. That’s why our conveyancing solicitors strive to provide a service that is seamless and efficient. If you have decided to sell or purchase property, your choice of solicitor will determine how smooth the legal process is and as a result, how stressful it is for you. When you choose to instruct Fishers for your conveyancing, we will provide you with a specialist who will be completely dedicated to getting you moving within a reasonable timeframe. At each stage and at each new development, your solicitor will be in contact to explain everything clearly and answer any questions you have. We also have legal experts on hand should you face a property dispute further down the line.
For most of us, the workplace is where we spend the majority of our time. For that reason alone, it should be a place in which we are treated with fairness and equality regardless of the industry we work in or background we come from.

We do this by providing a range of services for your business: from secretarial duties and assistance drafting contracts and agreements to support in expansion and business development. So, whether you need help setting up and getting off the ground or you need assistance through a restructuring deal, our solicitors have the legal expertise and business acumen necessary to guide you through with ease. As well as this, you can count on us to keep you compliant, assessing changes to legislation to determine how they will affect you.
Wills & Probate
When a loved one passes away, their estate will be distributed according to the wishes specified in their Will. Without a Will, it will be divided according to the laws of intestacy by an independent judge. That means, if you have no valid Will in place, you will have no say in who inherits from your estate after you have passed away.
At Fishers we have a team of expert wills and probate solicitors to help our clients plan for the future, providing tailored advice and assistance in the Will-writing process. We know that this is a conversation nobody particularly wants to have; so while we will approach the matter with sensitivity, our priority is to ensure your interests are protected before it is too late.
Our solicitors also provide assistance to those who have been named executor of a Will, lifting some of the weight of your shoulders by tackling the often-challenging process of estate administration.
If you are facing a legal issue but wish to seek a general overview of your options before instructing a solicitor, you may find it beneficial to make an appointment with the citizen’s advice bureau closest to your area. It is important to note, however, that the advice they provide comes on a one-off basis and your advisor will not be able to act as a solicitor on your case.
The Ashby de la Zouch council website is particularly useful to those new to the area; as it provides relevant information on housing options, education and employment opportunities as well as health services available.
