Emily Pain

Senior Solicitor, London Chancery Lane

Sympathetic and with compassion, I combine knowledge and legal advice with empathy to ensure my clients know they are in safe hands and supported. The Legal 500 regard me as a family lawyer who is  “extremely conscientious and supportive of her clients.”


Emily has experience in a broad range of private family matters including divorce, financial negotiations, cohabitation matters, prenuptial agreements and private children matters including applications for removal from this jurisdiction, wardship and abduction. In particular, Emily is often instructed in mid to high net worth cases involving multiple property portfolios, off-shore assets, family trust instruments and complex business assets.

Training & employment experience

After graduating from Sheffield Hallam University with a 2:1 LLB (Hons), Emily attended the College of Law in Guildford in 2007 to obtain her post-graduate diploma in legal practice.

Emily has practiced private family law exclusively since leaving law school, and left a well-respected family department of a Legal 500 law firm to join Stowe Family Law in our central London office.


Emily’s approach is clear, sympathetic and client-focused.  She will endeavour to keep you fully informed throughout your matter while making sure she pursues your interests in a determined but realistic manner.
