Claire McParland

Managing Partner, St Albans, Berkhamsted & Rickmansworth

I am dedicated to resolving matters as quickly and cost-effectively as possible. I can resolve cases amicably as well as robustly and will adapt my approach to suit you. I will support you to make the process as stress-free as possible. I often advise on high-value divorce cases, frequently with complex structures and an international element as well as more complex children’s cases.


Claire’s experience includes divorce cases involving high value and complex structures, often with international assets and jurisdiction issues. Claire often investigates hidden assets with input from our in-house forensic accountants.

Claire also advises on cases where injunctive action may be required to protect her clients and assists in cases where there is domestic violence.

She also often represents clients in complex children’s proceedings where there has been local authority involvement and also in applications to remove/contest removal of children from the jurisdiction.

Training & employment experience

She was educated at Hertfordshire law school. Claire was admitted as a solicitor in 2006 and has been specialising in family law ever since. Before joining Stowe, Claire was heavily involved in developing, expanding and running the family law teams at three other firms.

At Stowe Family Law, Claire is Managing Partner at our St Albans, Berkhamsted & Rickmansworth offices.


Claire is a member of Resolution, dedicated to resolving matters as amicably and cost-effectively as possible.  Claire is approachable and gives very clear advice.
