Fleming & Co, a close-knit group of professional, hard-working, friendly and sociable individuals, was formed in November 2017.
Karen Fleming, our Director, has a wealth of expertise in Family Law and has always specialised in this area. Karen received a 2.1 Honours Degree in Law from Southampton University in 1984. She went on to qualify as a solicitor in 1987. Having been a Partner in a Brighton firm for five years, she went on maternity leave in 1995, to have her first daughter. As a result of enquiries and demand, she set up her own practice before her first daughter was even a year old and continued to work on her own account, in her own business, for ten years. She had a 2 year break, when her children were still young, to enable her to devote quality time to them, then went back to work in various practices in the Sussex area, always in a senior position.
In November 2017, Karen set up her own business again.
Karen has a PA, Lorraine, and they have worked together, for many years, at various firms in Sussex. When Lorraine heard that Karen was starting up again in her own practice, she didn’t hesitate to become involved. Lorraine has a great deal of experience in secretarial and PA work in the matrimonial area.
Paula and Karen have also worked together previously. Paula is an experienced receptionist and office manager and is a huge support to the family team at Fleming & Co.
A recent further acquisition to increase our breadth of service is Elaine. She also worked previously with Karen and Paula. She is an experienced Employment, HR and Debt Collecting Solicitor. This alliance offers a fabulous addition to the services we already provide to our clients.
Although we do not offer these services personally, we do have connections and good relationships both with solicitors at a Conveyancing firm and a Wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney firm.
