Alice Blackmore

Senior Associate Solicitor

Get to know me...

I qualified as a Solicitor in October 2016 and previously worked at a firm in Plymouth before moving to Bath. I joined Goughs in January 2020 and was promoted to Associate in April 2021 then Senior Associate in April 2023. I am a member of the Family Law Panel and I am experienced in dealing with all areas of family law including disputes involving children, divorce, separation, finances, and cohabitation.

I have frequently assisted clients with Non-Molestation Orders and Occupation Orders. I regularly attend court in relation to disputes involving children and domestic abuse issues to represent clients. These are areas that I have a particular interest in. I also have close links with domestic abuse organisations in the local area and am a member of The Family Law Panel’s Green Phone Scheme initiative.

I am a Resolution member and an active member of YRes. Resolution promotes trying to resolve matters in a constructive and non-confrontational way. I pride myself on encouraging parties, where possible, to resolve matters in an amicable way and to put the needs of any children first to ensure they make positive decisions.

Testimonials from clients

My greatest achievement

I was promoted to Associate within a year of joining Goughs, of which I am very proud. I have created links with local domestic abuse charities in the area, such as Voices (Bath).

One of my greatest professional achievements is being ranked as a key lawyer in the 2024 Legal 500 Directory and receiving this quote: “Alice Blackmore is going to go far in her legal career. She is meticulous in her preparation and she provides sound advice to her clients.”

From a personal perspective, I also do a Counselling Course outside of work hours so I can provide a holistic and empathetic service to my clients who are going through a difficult time.

What I like about working for Goughs

Goughs provides me with an interesting case load and a great variety of work. I have also been encouraged to develop and progress in my career. I enjoy supervising young lawyers starting out in the profession, and Goughs have provided me with an opportunity to do this whilst also maintaining a great work-life balance enabling my husband and I to explore Bath and the Wiltshire countryside.
