Welcome to Shacklocks

[ Knowledge + Application ]

Through this website we hope you will find useful information about our firm, our people, our services and the work we do.

Shacklocks are both Solicitors and Independent Financial Advisors who have been looking after clients in the East Midlands and beyond for over 150 years. We have offices in Mansfield, Ripley, Belper and Allestree and have a number of features that make us a little different.  If you visit our about Shacklocks section of this site you can learn more about us. 

A message to our established and new Clients 15 May 2020 

Shacklocks have worked throughout the period of the Coronavirus restrictions in order to continue to provide our services to our clients, whilst ensuring that the wellbeing of our staff is a priority.

 If you have a new enquiry, for example, if you are going through relationship difficulties, or have lost a loved one, or need independent financial advice, our family, probate and financial services experts are working and will be pleased to help you, in the first instance by a telephone appointment. To make an enquiry at this time, here are our contact details:

For Family and Relationship Breakdown contact:
Ben Stubbins 01773 822333 or Marcella Kilbane 01773 743513

For Bereavement, Probate, Trusts and Estate administration contact:
Cassandra Worton 01773 822333 or Thomas Slack 01623 626141

For Powers of Attorney or Court of Protection enquiries contact:

For advice on managing your Investments contact our Independent Financial Advisor Paul Dolan DipPFS on 01623 626141

For conveyancing and personal injury work, we are concentrating on our existing cases which are at an advanced stage and on which there are critical time limits which cannot be altered, such as land registry enquiries or court deadlines.  If you have an enquiry about an existing case please contact the team already dealing with your case.

For your own health and welfare and that of our staff please do not attend our offices.  Our Mansfield, Belper and Ripley offices are closed to visitors. Our Allestree office is closed for the moment and will re-open, as soon as we can, in new ground floor premises within the Park Farm Centre.

If you have a payment to make for work we have done for you, we would ask that you make payment by card over the telephone wherever possible. Alternatively, if you have our bank details already, you may make payment by bank transfer or we can accept payment by cheque through the post.

We are very grateful to our staff and our clients for their loyalty to us and for working with us as we adapt to the changes brought about by Covid 19.  We hope to see you back in our offices when these times have passed.

Beware of fraudsters

There is now widespread targeting of clients of professional firms, and members of the public, by online fraudsters or scammers. The types of fraud or scam are increasingly varied. Very often, fraudsters will give the impression that they are solicitors or will claim to be from a particular firm of solicitors when they are not.

For security reasons, Shacklocks LLP will not request or provide bank details by email or telephone. We encourage clients and the public to be vigilant for hoax emails or telephone calls which mis-use the name or reputation of our firm. They may appear to come from Shacklocks or refer to Shacklocks but provide a link to a false website. They may give bogus bank account details or request your personal or bank details. Fraudulent emails can often, but not always, be spotted by the ‘suffix’ of the web-based email address they are sent from such as Gmail or Hotmail or by looking closely at the domain name of the website and may contain grammatical errors or spelling mistakes.

If you receive any unsolicited emails or telephone calls that claim to come from Shacklocks LLP which give cause for concern please bring it to our attention by contacting our IT Manager on 01623 626141 or email us at
