Specialist family law firm Rayden Solicitors, with offices across Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Essex and London, is pleased to announce the appointment of Partner Stuart Clark, who joins the firm from International Family Law Group. Stuart is based in Rayden’s Loughton office.
This is another very significant hire for the business. Stuart has over 15 years’ experience as a specialist family law practitioner. He is recognised as a Next Generation Partner by the leading industry rankings guide, The Legal 500, and his professional peers comment that Stuart is:
“very strategic and thoughtful, a determined litigator,” and “ ….technically very able..”
Stuart has worked across all areas of family law with a particular expertise in highly complex international aspects of family law with specialism in divorce, finance and forum matters with a cross-border dimension. Stuart advises on all aspects of relationship breakdown and is adept at fast-paced cross-border strategising and litigation, including working with complex issues of law and high net worth individuals.
Stuart’s appointment tops another year of exceptional growth for Rayden Solicitors. The business continues to go from strength to strength and has outperformed projections. During the last 12 months Rayden Solicitors has recruited across all areas of the business from business operations as well as fee earners – in total the business has welcomed 24 new joiners, including 10 solicitors, 3 further trainees and 6 paralegals. These appointments complement the firm’s growth during 2021 when we opened a further two offices, including the Loughton office as well as our Harpenden office, taking our total office numbers to 7.
Senior Partner Katherine Rayden said, “The Partners and I are absolutely delighted to announce Stuart’s appointment, and welcome him to the firm. He is very highly regarded and we feel proud to have recruited him from such a well-respected and renowned firm.
“We are also extremely proud of our performance in the last 12 months and our ability to continue to grow, and although our growth plans are ambitious we have always insisted on a robust recruitment strategy, ensuring we recruit the highest calibre solicitors to our team. To recruit so many new members of staff and to open yet more offices is testament to the commitment of all our team, and to our reputation that we can attract talented practitioners. We are looking forward to Stuart working with our Loughton colleagues to build upon the opportunities to broaden our reach across Essex.”
