Northwich solicitors gain promotion in Chambers & Partners UK 2021 Legal Guide

11 November 2020

Local Northwich-based solicitors practice Susan Howarth & Company has gained a promotion from a ‘Recommended’ to a ‘Ranked Band 2’ law firm in the Chambers & Partners 2021 legal guide.

Being ‘Ranked’ in this legal directory for their Family/Matrimonial expertise within ‘Chester & Surrounds’ is a major feather in the cap - arguably the legal industry’s most prestigious directory covering over 180 jurisdictions throughout the world, it’s notoriously the most difficult one to crack, with public law often underrepresented in their regional Family rankings.

Chambers & Partners highlights that SH&Co. has “… particular experience in children matters. Frequently acts on Child Arrangement Orders and care proceedings. Experienced in advising on cases concerning relocation, abduction and assault. Also adept at assisting clients with financial remedy proceedings.”

Notable interviewees confirmed: “They are professional, strong when needed, but a caring team of family lawyers.”

Director Susan Howarth said, ‘After only being recognised by Chambers & Partners for the first time ever last year, this is a phenomenal accomplishment for the whole team - we are all incredibly proud that we have attained this level of recognition in such an esteemed legal directory’.

The practice has built a strong reputation as one of the best family law firms outside of the cities, offering the full spectrum of services to both private and publicly funded clients and with the benefit of a Family Law Contract and a Mediation Contract with the Legal Aid Agency to enable the efficient delivery of those eligible for legal aid.

Susan Howarth went on to say, “Gaining this degree of acknowledgement in Chambers & Partners demonstrates that regardless of practice size, structure, location or profitability, with the right ethos, determination and commitment, it’s possible to deliver the very best legal advice, expertise and service level to all clients”.

SH&Co. also offers high-quality legal advice in commercial property, residential property and private client law covering wills, trusts, probate, powers of attorney Court of Protection and care of the elderly.
