Androulla (Andy) Pallikarou
After gaining a law degree, Andy was admitted as a solicitor in 1983 and has been with Stilemans Solicitors since, becoming a partner in 1985. She took over management almost immediately and now organises staffing, compliance and accounting. As well as property law, Andy specialises in acting for and advising a large number of elderly clients, often holding power of attorney from them. That has included arranging home care or referring to care homes where needed. Until Andy’s father’s death earlier this year, she was his carer. Andy says “I know from first-hand experience the difficulties and problems faced by both the more vulnerable and by their carers.”
Andy was co-opted as a trustee of Age UK Enfield in May 2016.
She was elected to her first three-year term at the 2016 AGM. She served as vice chair from November 2016 to December 2017, and has been Chair since then. She has now been nominated for a second term until the 2022 AGM.
