Emma Northover

Partner and Head of Civil Litigation

Emma Northover joined Beviss & Beckingsale Solicitors as a trainee solicitor in 2009 after obtaining her degree at Cardiff University.  Upon qualifying as a solicitor in 2011, she joined the firm’s litigation department.

She deals with a range of civil litigation matters and has particular expertise in inheritance disputes.  She helps her clients with a full range of issues in relation to contested probate and contested trust matters, and she understands the needs of her clients at what is an already difficult time in their lives. 

Emma also advises in relation to property disputes including property ownership issues, contract disputes and misrepresentation disputes.  Additionally, she assists with contested landlord and tenant matters both in the commercial and residential sectors.

Her experience in dealing with inheritance dispute law and property dispute work means that she can assist with professional negligence claims, particularly when these become apparent as the initial issues are investigated in the inheritance or property dispute context. 

Emma is a registered member of The Association of Contentious Trust and Probate Specialist (ACTAPS).

Having grown up in Somerset, Emma now lives in Devon with her husband. Outside of work she enjoys exploring the outdoors whether at home in the West Country or abroad.
