After a short sabbatical Nicky lectured AS and A level law at South Trafford College and Contract Law and Tort at Manchester Metropolitan University, from where she joined Salehs.

A keen advocate of mediation as a settlement tool, Nicky is experienced in preparing for and attending at mediations.

Outside work, Nicky enjoys spending time with her family, gardening, reading and travelling.


From the start of the working relationship with Nicky, she gave me confidence that she had all the legal areas covered and could react quickly when new issues arose. Nicky communicates effectively to us and other parties, which makes the process run smoothly throughout.
