Two divorce lawyers from the South West are featured on an independent list of some of the best advisors in private wealth management in the world.

Liz Allen, head of the family law team at Stephens Scown and her colleague, Andrew Barton, have been selected to appear in the print edition of the Citywealth Leaders List 2020.

The guide features the best advisors and managers in the wealth industry, based on client and peer reviews. It is distributed to 3,500 international advisors, charities and high net worth individuals.

Stephens Scown’s managing partner Richard Baker said: “As well as fantastic legal knowledge, Liz and Andrew both care deeply about their clients. Recognition on an international scale like this is well deserved for them both.”

One of the client comments about Liz in the guide reads: “Liz and her team were a tremendous support during a very difficult divorce – it was complicated by living abroad and returning to the UK, but Liz guided me through the process with sensible expectations and reassurance every step of the way. To have Liz’s help during such a difficult time meant I could prepare for my future.”

A client says of Andrew Barton: “From the first meeting up until the final outcome I could not fault his professionalism, efficiency, communication and kindness. Andrew kept me informed every step of the way and made sure everything was clear for me to understand. I can’t thank Andrew enough for all that he has done for me.”
