Stowe Family Law expands its UK presence with new Stockport office  

Stowe Family Law in Stockport

Stowe Family Law (Stowe) – the UK’s largest specialist family law firm – has opened an office in Stockport this week as the firm continues to expand its presence across the UK.  

Stowe’s country-wide growth is particularly focussed on the North West of England, helping the region access some of the country’s top family lawyers at a time when divorce enquiries are rising significantly due to Covid-19. 

Year on year since the global pandemic struck, Stowe has experienced a 95% increase in enquiries across the North West region, with a 45% increase reported in the Manchester area alone.*

The family law team in Stockport is led by Managing Partner Gareth Curtis, joined by Partner Kaleel Anwar, Solicitor Rachel Darrell and Associate Legal Executive Jennifer Hudec.   

While alternative dispute resolution options are always considered, exploring all routes to achieve a negotiated agreement, the Stockport team are also highly experienced litigators who possess excellent track records in successfully navigating clients through the court process.  

The team’s expertise covers all family law matters, from providing advice concerning divorce and separation; child living arrangements to resolving complex financial matters. 

About Stockport’s office opening, Stowe’s Senior Partner Julian Hawkhead commented:  

“We are seeing a significant increase in divorce enquiries following the pressures that Covid-19 and the lockdowns have had on families – many people are turning to lawyers for help in re-evaluating certain life choices.   

At Stowe, we pride ourselves on offering compassionate advice and solutions for our clients during these difficult times.  

By occupying a country-wide presence, we can develop closer, more personal connections with our clients, helping to support them and achieve their desired outcome.”
