Rachel Nicholl

Rachel has comprehensive experience of advising on divorce, financial disputes and Children Act proceedings. She often deals with cases of financial complexity many of which include family businesses. Rachel has recently been involved in a highly complex case in the High Court, with proceedings in both the family and commercial court.

Rachel joined Rayden Solicitors in June 2013 from a West End firm.

She is a keen contributor to the Family Law Journal and a member of Resolution.

I am delighted with the professionalism your firm showed when dealing with my divorce.
Client feedback, 2018

Whereas my friends complain that their solicitors don’t call them back and don’t show them correspondence sent or received, I have valued being called back, being shown draft before they are sent and receiving copies of correspondence. Rayden was the second firm I approached; I did not go back to the first solicitor as I didn’t feel comfortable with her. Rachel Nicholl, then Lehna Gardiner, were both easier to talk to and both do a good job of balancing a sympathetic manner with being objective and matter of fact
Client feedback, 2018

Thank you both so so much for all the support you have given me over the years, you have been brilliant and I couldn’t have done it without you.
Client feedback, 2018

Rachel Nicholl and Lehna Gardiner both provided the prompt, sound legal advice I needed in a manner which I appreciated.
Client feedback, 2018

Thank you very much for the way you dealt with my case, from your manner to your prompt, sound legal advice and recommendations of solicitors in other fields. You made a horrible time easier to manage. I will continue to recommend you, and Rachel Nicholl, without hesitation.
Client feedback, 2018

I wanted to say a huge thank you for your invaluable help, expertise and sound advice over the last year or so. At times, I’ve been driven to distraction, as matters have unfolded, and your calm demeanour and support has been always consistent and very welcome.

I want to thank you for your guidance and support and, in particular Rachel, who has worked tirelessly on my behalf. Rachel’s patience with both of us has been exemplary.
