Get to know Nicola
I became a trainee solicitor in 2010 and qualified as a solicitor in 2012, specialising in travel litigation. I was promoted to principal lawyer in 2019.
I specialise in international travel litigation representing clients who have suffered from accidents abroad. I have specific expertise in contractual disputes with international aspects involving cross border issues.
During my career I've undertaken a wide variety of work across a number of jurisdictions. As a result, I have a strong working knowledge of the different legal systems in European countries.
I’ve acted for individuals involved in accidents occurring on package holidays, road traffic accidents overseas and illness cases that occur abroad.
I also have experience of working on injuries involving chronic pain, fibromyalgia and Legionnaires Disease.
For the past couple of years I've been recognised by independent legal guides, Chambers and partners and Legal 500.
Chambers and Partners 2021 guide increased my ranking from an Associate to Watch to a Star Associate and states: “Nicola Rostron handles personal injury claims arising from road traffic accidents, illnesses and various incidents occurring during package holidays. Interviewees say: "She has a very deep knowledge of the practice area and is a very astute lawyer."
The 2021 edition of the Legal 500 has ranked me as a Rising Star and recognised me as a key lawyer, stating: “Nicola Rostron – Deep knowledge and interest in the legal framework applicable to this area. She is an astute litigator who is not afraid to take on difficult cases.”
The extra mile
I’m a member of the Law Society and a member of the Pan-European Organisation of Personal Injury Lawyers.
Nicola was absolutely professional throughout my case. She is certainly a wonderful credit to Slater and Gordon Lawyers. I'd just like to add that Nicola was polite and brilliant. I would recommend to anyone with similar circumstances as myself to contact Slater and Gordon. Client testimonial (for Nicola Rostron)
I was involved in a malicious incident overseas which naturally made the process of claiming compensation a lot more difficult than normal. Nicola managed to get all of the documents, statements and information required. Throughout the entire process Nicola kept me up to date via email and telephone calls at times that were most suitable for me. I would highly recommend Slater and Gordon, particularly Nicola, as I have first-hand experience of their efforts, honesty and professionalism from start to finish making the claim as easy and minimal (form filling/work wise) for the claimant as possible.
