Ellie Lowes

Job title?


What does your role at Silk Family Law involve?

I advise clients on all areas of family law, including financial arrangements on divorce, child arrangements, cohabitation disputes and nuptial agreements. I often work alongside Margaret Simpson and Ian Kennerley, two of the partners in our team.

What did you do before you joined the team?

I was an Associate at Mills & Reeve, working in their family team in London.

What is your favourite part of the job?

I really enjoy getting to know my clients and feeling like I’ve helped them through a difficult period in their lives.

What do you most like about working at Silk Family Law?

We have a tight-knit team here at Silk and I love that we all look out for each other.

What else would you like to be doing if you weren’t doing this role?

I’d like to bring my expertise to a family law charity and can see myself doing that in future alongside my legal practice.

What is your perfect day away from the office?

A walk along the Northumberland coast followed by a long relaxed pub lunch.

What would you do if you won the lottery?

The first thing I’d do is book a trip to Australia and New Zealand, two countries I’ve always wanted to visit! Then I’d probably buy a new house for my brother.

Who would you most like to have a drink with and why?

Claudia Winkleman – I’m a big Strictly fan and find Claudia hilarious!
