New hire leads the launch of the firm’s Care Department

We are delighted to announce that we have launched a new Care Department, based in our St Paul’s office in London. The aim of the department is to further enhance the range of legal support the firm can offer to its ever increasing clientele. Led by Sheena Donlon, the department will focus on representing clients in the South of England.

Sheena has considerable experience in advocacy at the Family Proceedings Court, County Court and High Court and has represented parents, family members and children in public law proceedings (including Emergency Protection Orders, Care Orders, Supervision Orders and Secure Accommodation orders. She’s an accredited member of the Law Society’s Children Panel since 2014 which allows her to represent children in highly complex matters, involving Local Authority Care and Supervision Proceedings.

She also represents clients in private law matters involving Child Arrangements, Special Guardianship and Parental Responsibility applications.
Having recently doubled its staff count in Birmingham, Kent & Coventry, the establishment of the new team is part of the firm’s strategy to expand its specialist offering to other areas of law.

Head of Family, Kirsty Richards, welcomed Sheena, commenting:

The aim of the new department is to focus on the care work already being undertaken by our specialist solicitors in our various branches, by specifically having a dedicated team dealing exclusively with public children law work. NLS is keen to establish a stronghold in London and the surrounding areas in respect of this type of work and with Sheena’s leadership, the team will develop in the coming months to achieve that goal.
