Nichola Cannell

Nicola Cannell

Senior Solicitor & Head of the Specialist Property Transfer Team

I qualified as a Solicitor in 2000 having previously been a Legal Executive.  I moved from Personal Injury claims to Conveyancing and Private Client in 2014 and after taking the STEP exams I qualified as an Estates and Trusts Practitioner in 2019 with STEP. I was a Partner in my previous firm before we merged with Attwells in 2022.


“I really can’t tell you how refreshing it was to have Jenny Cantle and then Nicola handling our matter. They were honest about time frames. Totally responsive when we needed to speak to someone, even at 5 pm on a Friday evening. They went over and above to help our vendor resolve their difficulties with their solicitors. It genuinely was a pleasure working with them. I congratulate you on your business model. It is extremely effective. Rest assured we will always come back to your firm.”

“We instructed Attwells in the aftermath of the failure of the online firm we had been using. They could not have been more efficient kind responsive or effective. It started with a seemingly simple thing, having an actual person answering the telephone who was knowledgeable about the firm and its business. Within seconds we spoke to someone who could and did advise us on how to proceed. They dealt with our now extremely urgent conveyancing quickly and professionally and we are in no doubt that without them the deal would have fallen through. In our chain, we were the only people who could directly contact the person handling our file and in fact, others were calling Attwells for assistance in reaching their solicitors. We never failed to speak to someone who could respond to our queries. We couldn’t recommend them highly enough. Finally, I would like to add that the fee we paid was not that much higher than the online provider but in terms of value for money it was ridiculously good value.”
