Stowe Family Law’s Senior Partner, Marilyn Stowe, has been described by The Times as "one of the most formidable and sought-after divorce lawyers in the UK".

The Managing Partner at Stowe Family Law’s Manchester and Cheshire office is Julian Hawkhead, one of the firm’s founding partners. Julian is known for his sensible and commercial approach to cases and his ability to negotiate effectively, bringing calm and common sense to the most contentious of disputes. Julian specialises in cases involving complex financial arrangements, often with a corporate or trust element. A Resolution-accredited specialist in both Emergency Procedures in Financial & Property Cases and Complex Financial & Property Matters, Julian is also trained as a collaborative lawyer.
Our 40-strong team at Stowe Family Law includes Yorkshire divorce lawyers and also forensic accountants, who are experts in tracking down hidden assets. The firm has dedicated international family law and children departments. Our family lawyers in Yorkshire also draw up postnuptial agreements and cohabitation agreements.
Stowe Family Law Settlements in Yorkshire
Our partner firm, Stowe Family Law Settlements, also has an office in Harrogate. It is dedicated to helping couples and families whose relationships have broken down, but who wish to avoid protracted and expensive courtroom battles. What sets the practice apart is the way in which it combines mediation with family law expertise. It is staffed by a nine-strong team of “lawyer mediators”: trained family mediators who are also qualified and highly experienced family lawyers.
The lawyer mediators at Stowe Family Law Settlements are able to assist with a range of legal disputes, including divorce and separation agreements, cohabitation agreements, child residence and contact disputes, grandparents’ rights and prenuptial agreements. This innovative form of dispute resolution was once little-known in the UK, but is expected to increase in popularity because with one lawyer instead of two, the legal fees are often lower. Couples are also able to maintain their privacy, because there are no court judgements to be made public.
