Levison Meltzer Pigott has promoted Kate Stovold and Benjamin Stowe to partner, effective from 1st April 2021.
Kate joined Levison Meltzer Pigott in October 2017 and has been involved in a wide variety of cases, many with an international element, involving complex business structures and family trusts and disputes surrounding inherited wealth. She also has a committed interest in resolving disputes concerning children. She is recognised by Legal 500, both in 2020 and 2021 as a ‘rising star’; in the latter she is described as a ‘joy to work with for her complete commitment and passion.’
Ben joined Levison Meltzer Pigott in June 2018 and specialises in all work relating to Family and Child Law. He is already closely involved with some of the largest and most complex cases under the LMP umbrella. Ben trained and qualified at Ince & Co, specialising in commercial disputes and he now brings this commercial perspective to divorce law. Ben is recommended in The Legal 500 2021 for being ‘bright, engaged and wise beyond his years’
Levison Meltzer Pigott Managing Partner, Simon Pigott, announced the promotions and congratulated Kate and Ben as the main focus of a team-wide virtual meeting last Friday:
“Albeit remotely, I was delighted to share the good news that both Kate and Ben will be LMP partners from the 1st April, with the LMP team. It is exciting and rewarding to watch young lawyers, such as Kate and Ben, grow in confidence and experience ready to step up to the responsibilities and challenges of being a partner. We know that LMP will benefit from their energy and fresh perspectives and we look forward to celebrating their achievements together and in person very soon.”
Jeremy Levison, who founded the firm in 1998 with Simon, agrees:
“As a firm we have maintained the principles and core values we had from the very start. One of our key premises has always been to look for special young lawyers who will become the partners of the future. In Kate and Ben we have two par excellence. I look forward enormously to working closely with them over the coming years.”
