Nicholson Clark was set up in 2015 by qualified solicitors Anna-Britt Nicholson and Caroline Clark.  Having worked for big law firms for a number of years in London and Newcastle, both Anna-Britt and Caroline chose to specialise in will writing and offer the very highest standards of personal service without the distractions and costs of a law firm.

Working from our homes in Northumberland we have developed a bespoke service for our clients offering all aspects of Will Writing, Lasting Powers of Attorney and Estate Planning.  We fully appreciate the importance and sensitivity of what we do and therefore always prefer to visit our clients at home or – if not possible – by videocall.

As qualified solicitors, our business was founded on the very highest professional standards. We remain members of The Law Society and we are also DBS checked. Our business is regulated by the Institute of Professional Willwriters which is Trading Standards Approved, and we are – of course – fully insured.


I studied at the University of Exeter and left with a BA Hons in Politics. Following this I attended the College of Law in London and qualified as a solicitor in 1999. I then started my legal career at Clyde & Co in the City of London and Watson Burton in Newcastle upon Tyne. 

I moved North to Northumberland from where my husband originated to bring up our two boys. 

I really enjoy meeting the clients that come to us, at all stages of their lives; young parents whose priority is to appoint guardians for their new baby or older people concerned to pass on their assets to the next generation. Each client has their own unique story to tell”. 


I originally studied at the University of Edinburgh and was awarded an MA Hons in History of Art. I went on to attend the College of Law in London and qualified as a solicitor in 1996. I started my legal career at Eversheds Sutherland in Newcastle upon Tyne followed by Charles Russell Speechlys in London. 

Having been brought up near Hexham – and then away from the North East for almost ten years – I moved back with my husband to bring up our two boys and to be near my own parents. Over 17 years later we are here to stay with two dogs, chickens, pigs and fantastic friends across our fabulous county. 


“Every day I work with a variety of very different clients across the North East – and increasingly elsewhere in the UK – to provide the support they need at what can be a very difficult and sensitive time. I fully recognise that a Will or LPAs can be some the most important documents in your life and often involves delicate conversations with family members and loved ones.”
