Our story

In the year that American actress Elizabeth Taylor finalised her 7th divorce (1982), Stowe Family Law opened its first office in a converted cobblers shop in Leeds.

In February 2017 founder Marilyn Stowe sold the firm and retired. As part of the management buy out, private equity firm Livingbridge invested in the next phase of Stowe Family Law’s expansion.

Today, we have grown into the UK’s leading family law practice with offices in over 20 locations in England including London, Manchester, Bristol, York, Birmingham and Leeds.

To continue our journey as the UK’s leading family law practice, we must work together so that we grow to be the best for our people, the best in the market and the best for our clients.
