Nicola Prior

Senior Partner


Nicola Prior has practised business and employment law for almost 20 years. Her extensive experience has covered mergers and acquisitions, ‘anything to do with companies or businesses’ and employment law in all its forms.

Prior Law

Before setting up Prior Law in 2004, Nicola studied music at Oxford University and spent 10 years marketing Mr Pavarotti (and others) at Decca Records before deciding to change careers to become a solicitor, culminating in years spent in private practice in the City, including the dubious honour of selling Sooty to Thomas the Tank Engine.

Why choose law?

There is nothing like the thrill of a successfully concluded completion meeting, knowing that you have helped your clients to achieve all of their objectives and more and that it has been such fun getting there.


Nicola is a fluent French speaker.
