Law firm expands family team


Lizzie Smith is the latest partner to join Stephens Scown, the employee-owned and B Corp Certified law firm.

She will be joining Stephens Scown’s family team, which is the largest in the south west and the only family law team top-ranked in both Devon and Cornwall in the Chambers and Legal 500 guides.

With over a decade of experience in the financial aspects of relationship breakdown, Smith advises on divorce and financial settlements, financial support for children or following a foreign divorce, enforcement issues, and freezing injunctions. She also supports clients with non-molestation and occupation orders, pre- and post-nuptial agreements, arrangements for children and relocation applications.

Andrew Barton, partner and head of the family team said: “We are delighted to welcome Lizzie into our growing team. She will be heading up our family offering in our new Somerset office, further enhancing the offer within the county and confirming the firm’s position as a leading south west law firm.”
