Anne Shears

Associate Solicitor
Family

Anne qualified in 2007 and has practised family law in Plymouth since 2009. Anne joined Nash & Co in January 2017 and specialises in divorce cases and in resolving financial matters that arise from the breakdown of a relationship. Anne also prepares cohabitation and pre-nuptial agreements and separation agreements.

Anne recognises that very few clients wish to go to Court and seeks to resolve disputes through careful negotiation outside of a Court managed process if possible. However, she is clear in her advice as to when an application is required and has expertise in representing clients if such steps are necessary to bring about a conclusion as swiftly as possible.

Anne is a member of Resolution which is a national organisation encouraging family law cases to be pursued and resolved in a non-antagonistic and constructive manner. Anne has also achieved the status of Resolution Accredited Specialist in Complex Financial Remedies, Cohabitation and TOLATA (Trusts of Land and Appointment of Trustees Act 1996).
