Stowe celebrates another year in The Legal 500 rankings


It was another excellent year for Stowe Family Law’s North West offices in The Legal 500 UK 2020 rankings.

The Legal 500 rankings are a top independent leading guide to the best lawyers and law firms across the UK.

The rankings reflect a detailed analysis of law firm submissions and thousands of interviews with GCs and private practice lawyers, conducted by a team of experienced researchers.

Stowe’s North West team maintained its tier 3 listing and was recognised for its specialist knowledge.

“The team has specialist legal knowledge in family law. They understand and find solutions to any difficult challenges by employing their individual skills and abilities. They listen and answer any queries with clarity and empathy, thereby reducing the stress and uncertainty during the divorce procedure.”

There were two personal mentions for Helen Miller, Managing Partner of Stowe Family Law’s Altrincham office:

“I have found Helen Miller to be very professional in all aspects of her work. She is diligent and thorough with a strength of will and determination. I felt total confidence in her ability to obtain a very satisfactory conclusion throughout the process of my divorce, including the court hearings. Helen expresses great client care, empathy and understanding with compassion during this difficult period of my life.”

“Helen Miller is a very capable lawyer, and she offers a first-class service to clients.”

And a special note for Lesley Smythe, Managing Partner of Stowe Family Law’s Wilmslow office,

“Lesley Smythe has embodied the values of the practice and is a credit to Stowe Family Law, supporting me and yet carefully challenging me when it’s been needed, always trying to maintain my focus on achieving a resolution to the divorce. Lesley’s strengths encompass the extensive experience of matrimonial and family law and a wealth of qualities to compliment this.”

Gareth Curtis, Managing Partner of Stowe Family Law’s Manchester office was noted as a ‘Next Generation Partner’.
