Stewarts boosts divorce and family team with two solicitors

Dispute resolution firm Stewarts has added two new solicitors to its divorce and family team in Leeds.

Hannah McCrindle and Ellie Hampson-Jones (pictured, left and right) join the now nine-strong team as associates to focus exclusively on acting in high value and complex matters for local, national and international high-net-worth individuals.

McCrindle trained in Dubai with Expatriate Law where she gained experience in dealing with cases involving international assets and complex jurisdictional issues. She has a particular interest in cases with a United Arab Emirates/Sharia law dimension from her time working in Dubai.

Her recruitment follows hot on the heels of Ellie Hampson-Jones’s arrival from Pennington Manches Cooper.

Hampson-Jones has a particular interest in cases with an Anglo-US dimension from her experience working for a prestigious family law firm in Los Angeles.

Adrian Clossick, head of divorce and family at Stewarts in Leeds, commented: “We are pleased to welcome Hannah and Ellie to the Leeds divorce and family team at Stewarts. We act exclusively for high-net-worth individuals and their spouses, and the recruitment of individuals of Hannah and Ellie’s calibre shows not only the strong demand for our services, but also the attraction of Leeds to practitioners with international standing. We are excited to have them on board as we continue to grow the team.”
