Stowe Family Law expands in Yorkshire

Stowe Family Law is continuing to grow its regional presence in Yorkshire with a new office opening in Malton and new talent joining the firm in Leeds.

The opening of the Malton office highlights Stowe’s commitment to the Yorkshire region, where the firm began operating in Leeds, with its inaugural office opening in 1982.

The specialist family law firm now has 38 offices nationwide, including nine in Yorkshire.

Its new Malton office will be led by senior solicitor Juliet Walker, who is experienced in all aspects of family law, including advising and representing clients in the process of divorce, unmarried separation, civil partnership dissolution, and child law matters.

Meanwhile, Stowe’s Leeds office is expanding further as the firm enhances its talent pool with two recruits this month.

Sarah Sowden (pictured, left) has joined the team as a senior solicitor, while Jake Mitchell (pictured, right) is welcomed as a solicitor, taking the Yorkshire team to 21.

The new appointments strengthen the team’s experience in a wide range of family law matters, including divorce, separation, financial settlements, nuptial agreements and arrangements for children. The team also offers specialisms in adoption, surrogacy, mediation, and a collaborative family law practice.

Rachel Roberts, Stowe’s regional director for Yorkshire, said: “As the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we have seen a sharp rise in enquiries across Yorkshire and particularly in the Leeds area. Opening the new office in Malton and growing the team in Leeds allows us to maintain the highest support levels for our clients throughout the pandemic and beyond.”

“With Jake and Sarah’s arrival, we now have a team of twenty-one in Yorkshire, and I am happy to welcome them both to the firm. Their combined experience in family law and knowledge will complement our existing offering and help clients to achieve their desired outcomes.”

Roberts continued: “As part of the country’s largest specialist family law firm, we can offer people across Yorkshire access to an unrivalled nationwide network of knowledge and experience on their doorstep.”
