Eleanor Barber promoted to Partner

Category: Family

Nash & Co Solicitors LLP in Plymouth have promoted Eleanor Barber, the Family Team leader, to the position of Partner, following a very positive 2018, which saw the team both grow and secure Chambers and Legal 500 rankings – the only Family team in the area to do so.

Eleanor joined Nash & Co in December 2015 and has over 15 years family law expertise. She is a Resolution Accredited Specialist for Complex Financial and Property Matters, and also for Domestic Abuse. As a Resolution Specialist, Eleanor has demonstrated her knowledge and abilities in the selected areas through a rigorous assessment process. Eleanor is also a member of the Law Society’s Children Panel.

Eleanor is also a trained Collaborative Lawyer and is able to offer clients the opportunity to resolve issues and disputes through the collaborative process rather than through Court proceedings.

“I am delighted to join the Partnership at Nash & Co,” said Eleanor. “Since joining the firm in 2015, I have been impressed not only by the leadership and aspirations of the firm, but also the quality of the service given to clients and the outstanding ability of the many leading lawyers and support staff. At Nash you are part of a supportive, dedicated and hard-working team, sharing a common aim of being the very best law firm in Plymouth, and I am immensely proud to be a part of it.”

The Legal 500 guide commented that “Eleanor Barber, who heads the department, is a ‘faultless lawyer’, ‘personable and knowledgeable in her field’.” Chambers named Eleanor as an ‘Associate to Watch’ in 2018.


Nash & Co’s Managing Partner, Jon Loney, is delighted that Eleanor has achieved the position of Partner in the firm. “Eleanor is an exceptional divorce and children lawyer, leading one of the top family teams in the city, and we are delighted that she is a Partner in our firm.”
