Experienced lawyers Sarah Clowes and Alexandra Finney have joined forces to create a family friendly new solicitors practice in Stoke-on-Trent.
The duo have founded Clowes and Co. Solicitors offering services including conveyancing and property, wills and estate planning, elderly care services and all aspects of family law.
With a base in the former Britannia Building Society branch at Baddeley Green, Sarah says the new practice is ideally placed to provide advice to members of the local community and the wider population of Stoke on Trent.
“We welcome people who want to drop in with their queries. We believe in making the process of seeing a solicitor as easy and as comfortable as possible.
“The former building society has been transformed into a friendly reception, with sofas to sit on and toys for the children. Our staff are there to help visitors to feel comfortable and we want local residents to know they can just drop in and ask a question.”
Sarah who grew up in the local area, has 13 years of experience as a solicitor and specialises in wills and estate planning. Alexandra, is a property law specialist and qualified as a solicitor three years ago.
Clowes and Co comprises a team of five, including office manager Kim Hughes, para-legal Toni Brazier and PA Fiona Parkes.
“I specialise in inheritance and succession planning, working with clients to ensure they have peace of mind by properly planning their Wills and advising on probate matters, trusts and all family estate planning. Only around a third of people have a Will and this needs to change as, if you don’t leave a Will, the law decides how your estate is passed on and the outcome may not be what you wanted it to be.“My work compliments Alexandra’s expertise in residential property law. We understand that buying or selling a home can be incredibly stressful and Alexandra works to ensure the conveyancing, and other matters surrounding property, goes as smoothly as possible.”
Where possible we provide a fixed fee, cost-effective service to allow people to budget. We utilise modern IT systems to speed up the process and work closely with our clients to ensure their objectives are achieved
