Stowe Family Law, the largest specialist family law firm in the UK, aims to use its expertise with empathy and conviction in its dealings with clients.

It aspires to be the best family law practice in each of its locations in England and Wales. Stowe's ambition is to resolve issues within families and to succeed by helping more clients secure the best available outcome and move forward with their lives.

Stowe's roots are in Yorkshire. It was founded in 1982 in a small cobbler's office in Leeds by Marilyn Stowe. In February 2017, the firm underwent a management buy-out by private equity firm Livingbridge, which invested in the next phase of Stowe's expansion. Since then it has grown from 16 offices to a network of 38 across England and Wales.

Powered by its purpose — "When families break down, we help them move forward" — and three core values of "we achieve together", "we want growth" and "we have spirit", every team member brings them to life in their daily interactions with clients, professionals and each other. In 2021, the firm launched a virtual book club, which provided the opportunity for colleagues from its departments and offices across the UK to meet online and discuss something outside the work context.
