Date published: 06 May 2021

Zoe Clough has become a new partner at the Heywood practice of Sharp Cross and Mann Solicitors.

As a former partner at AST Hampsons where she had worked for 10 years, Zoe brings over 20 years’ experience as a specialist in elderly client law, including wills and trusts, probates, lasting powers of attorney, court of protection applications, professional deputy services and management of finances.

On her move to Sharp Cross and Mann, Zoe said: “I had known the partners for some time and was absolutely delighted to be offered the opportunity to be part of their incredible growth story.

“My new partners share my client-focused beliefs and have built an exceptional team with a strong reputation for their work in family, commercial, conveyancing and employment law, not to mention their growing reputation in my specialist field.”

Zoe has been the President of the Rochdale Law Association since 2019, is Solicitors for the Elderly accredited and an affiliate of The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners.



As a local resident with a young family, Zoe has a keen interest in her community. She had provided Age UK Rochdale with a monthly legal clinic for over eight years, until their closure in 2016, and subsequently agreed to provide a monthly legal clinic for carers via The Carers Hub Rochdale, who she also assists with events and Carers Week campaigns.

In support of her clients’ health and social needs, Zoe has extensive experience in liaising with a wide range of organisations, such as social services, community mental health teams, home care agencies, independent mental capacity advocates, and community social support services. In addition, she has provided presentations to many local groups, including pensioners associations and local charity groups.
