Northwich solicitors make Legal Guide debut

Northwich-based solicitors practice Susan Howarth & Company has had both its Directors, Susan Howarth and Victoria Poole, ranked as Notable Practitioners for the first time in the Chambers & Partners 2023 legal guide.

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 smaller practices and public law both often underrepresented in their regional Family rankings.

The firm also proudly maintains its position as a Band 2 ranked law firm this year, with Chambers & Partners highlighting that SH&Co.  is a “firm with particular experience in children matters. It frequently acts on child arrangements orders and care proceedings and is experienced in advising on cases concerning relocation, abduction and assault. The team is also adept at assisting clients with financial remedy proceedings.” 

Director Susan Howarth said, “Victoria and I are honoured to be recognised for the work we do, but we are prouder still that the whole department continues to receive acknowledgement for their constant commitment to client care, particularly to vulnerable clients, and the provision of such a high level of legal expertise – we are all delighted to continue attaining this level of recognition in such an esteemed legal guide’.

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, “regardless of practice size, structure, location or profitability, with the right ethos, determination and commitment, we’ve shown it’s possible to deliver the very best legal advice, expertise and service level to all clients”.
