Stewarts Law LLP’s core family law focus makes it a ‘no-brainer; it can deal with simple through to complex matters in a cost-effective way, working collaboratively to deliver a holistic service to clients’. The key figure in Leeds is Adrian Clossick, who is ‘adept at managing client expectations as well as fighting their corner with determination; he can also summon an excellent sense of humour when appropriate’. The practice’s primary area of activity is high-value disputes, often involving cross-border trusts and corporate structures. Jenny Bowden joined the team in October 2016 from Clarion, and Edward Heaton joined in May 2017 from Mills & Reeve LLP.
