Stowe Family Law (Stowe) – the UK’s largest specialist family law firm –has widened its regional presence in the North West with the opening of an office in Stockton Heath, Warrington.
The opening of the Stockton Heath office is the firm’s 39th nationally and part of its ongoing country-wide expansion, helping to provide much-needed reassurance in a time of continued anxiety for many couples who have felt the strain of the pandemic on their relationships.
Since the global public health disaster struck back in March last year, enquiries into the firm have increased by 81%*. Research looking into the motivations behind this increase conducted by the firm revealed over a quarter of people living in the North West said Covid- 19 had a negative impact on their relationship and 50% said that concerns over their financial situation had caused friction.
Of those relationships that ended, 75% of respondents said they did not have any concerns or tension before the pandemic.
The Warrington office is headed up by Partner Camilla Burton-Baddeley, who is experienced in all aspects of family law, including advising and representing clients in the process of divorce, unmarried separation, financial settlements and child law matters. She will be supported by Managing Partner Helen Miller and Solicitor Megan Brookfield.
“I am delighted to have the opportunity to head up the new office in Warrington; as the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic continues, we are still seeing a sharp rise in enquiries across all our offices. Opening this new office strengthens our regional presence in the North West and allows us to maintain the highest support levels for people going through a divorce or separation throughout the pandemic and beyond.”
“The Warrington office is our 8th in the North West region, joining locations including Manchester, Wilmslow, Altrincham and Chester. As part of the country’s largest specialist family law firm, we can offer people who live across the North West access to an unrivalled nationwide network of knowledge and experience on their doorstep.”
