Mills & Reeve welcomes Stephanie Douthwaite to family law team

Mills & Reeve has recruited Stephanie Douthwaite to its growing family team.

Stephanie has joined as a principal associate. She advises high-net-worth (HNW) individuals across family law matters including complex financial remedies, pre and post marital agreements and children proceedings. She holds resolution specialist accreditation and is also a qualified collaborative family lawyer.

Stephanie joins from Clarion Solicitors where she was a legal director. Her appointment, which follows that of partner Jane Ingleby who also joined from Clarion Solicitors where she was head of family law, is designed to strengthen further Mills & Reeve market leading in the Yorkshire region.

Philip Way, head of the family team in Leeds, said: “As our practice in the region continues to grow, we need lawyers with a wealth of experience to advise our client base of high-net-worth individuals with complex needs across children, international, wealth protection, business, pensions and cohabitation law. Stephanie’s experience in these areas will significantly boost our strategic expansion plans as she brings unrivalled expertise to our Leeds team.”

Stephanie added: “I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know my new Mills & Reeve colleagues since joining the firm and I’m very much looking forward to opportunities to collaborate with some exceptional lawyers. I’ll be offering a safe pair of hands to those clients looking to resolve complex family related issues, promising a dedication for resolving matters constructively. My work will be further enhanced by being able to draw in the unparalleled expertise from across the firm, to add value when working with my family clients.”
