Sonia is a key senior member of our family team in Leicester, with a wealth of experience gained over more than 30 years.

As a long-standing divorce lawyer, Sonia has an outstanding reputation as a talented negotiator, with a calm but tenacious approach, able to identify the key issues early on and to seek the best resolution for her client.

With an enviable background in all family law topics and consistently recognised in the Legal 500, Sonia is skilled in dealing with high value family breakdowns involving businesses, trusts, farms, inherited wealth and significant pension assets. She also advises on Pre and Post Nuptial planning, cohabitation and complex disputes involving children.

She has an eye for detail and will find imaginative, commercial, solutions to the range of issues presented to her, whilst endeavouring to ensure that her clients have the most constructive and cost effective resolution to their case.

“Sonia listened well, was reassuring and clear in her tactics. She gave me strong support.”

“My solicitor Sonia Bachu provided excellent advice, clear guidance with a personal touch and exemplary support through particularly tricky divorce proceedings. The very best possible outcome was achieved for me at every point and I would highly recommend her”

“The most important thing…personal care. Sonia showed that she genuinely cared about my situation. In a very troubling time, this made all the difference. I have and will continue to recommend Sonia.”

I don’t view my work as ‘transactional’. My clients deserve more than that. I need to know that I have secured the very best outcome for them, so that they can have the most comfortable start in the next chapter of their lives.
