She said: ’I work with my clients to resolve matters in the most constructive and cost-effective route possible. The breakdown of a relationship is an emotional experience and I work with empathy and compassion to support people through this difficult time.’

Gareth Curtis, managing partner, said: ’It is a really exciting time for Stowe Family Law in Manchester. Since we opened last November, we have attracted an ever-growing caseload of clients and this has driven the need to recruit another solicitor to the team. I am thrilled that Rachel has joined us. She brings with her a range of experience of family law and her involvement in private children law will be a valuable addition to the team.’

Darrell’s appointment marks the continued growth of Stowe Family Law following a major investment by private equity firm Livingbridge last year.  Now with 16 offices, new additions include Beverley, Esher, Reading, Manchester and Bristol, the firm employs more than 50 family law solicitors.
