‘Birthday’ at the races for top Yorks solicitor

Yorkshire Evening Post, 16 October 2007.


LEADING Yorkshire solicitor Marilyn Stowe celebrated her firm’s silver jubilee at York Racecourse.

Top UK divorce lawyer Mrs Stowe’s Harrogate firm, Stowe Family Law LLP, sponsored Rockingham Stakes race won by Max One Two Three.

Mrs Stowe presented the trophy to triumphant jockey Richard Kingscote in a ceremony filmed live for Channel 4 Racing.

Stowe Family Law LLP is one of the UK’s largest family law practices and boasts a 20-strong team of specialist lawyers and forensic accountants.

Having co-founded the business from humble beginnings in a converted Leeds cobbler’s shop, the firm now attracts clients worldwide and handles cases involving assets of over £100m.


Mrs Stowe said: “Our Silver Jubilee celebrations were our way of thanking our tremendously dedicated team, as well as our guests, who travelled from far and wide to share this milestone occasion with us.”

Mrs Stowe was the first female solicitor outside London to be elected a Fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers.

She was also appointed the first Chief Assessor and Chief Examiner of the Law Society’s Family Law Panel in 1998 and is a member of the Legal Advisory Group to the Law Commission, which recently proposed changes in the law relating to cohabitation.

The founder of Stowe Family Law, Marilyn Stowe is one of Britain’s best known family law solicitors and divorce lawyers. She retired from Stowe Family Law in 2017.
