Stowe Family Law recruits new solicitor for Ilkley office

Stowe Family Law has recruited a new solicitor for its Ilkley office to support business growth.

Claire Chisnall has joined the team in Ilkley as an adviser on all elements of the divorce process, including any financial disputes and arrangements for children.

Chisnall had a successful career in the mortgage industry before she retrained in law at Leeds Beckett University.

She said of her appointment: “I am delighted to be joining Stowe Family Law in Ilkley. Whatever the case, I adopt a no-nonsense but empathetic approach to make sure my clients are well-informed and put at ease throughout. The breakdown of a relationship is an emotional experience and I work with compassion to support people through this difficult time.”

Managing partner at Stowe Family Law, Sarah Barr-Young, commented: “It’s a really exciting time for Stowe Family Law in Ilkley. Our increasing number of clients means that we needed to recruit another solicitor and I am delighted to welcome Claire to the team. She brings with her a range of experience of family law and her knowledge of the mortgage sector will be a valuable addition to the team.”

Senior solicitor Matthew Miles joined the Harrogate office of Stowe Family Law late last year.

Miles advises on all aspects of family law with a focus on divorce and financial settlements, often involving assets of more than £1 million and complex issues including pensions, businesses, properties, trusts and the tracing of assets.
