Jane Bamford-Graham, a lawyer who started her career as a trainee at Bath law firm Stone King , has returned as an Associate Solicitor.

She joins the city centre law firm from Mowbray Woodwards and brings with her a wealth of experience in family matters, including representing children’s interests in complex care proceedings. Her appointment further strengthens Stone King’s Family Team.

Jane said, “I am delighted to return to the Family Team at Stone King where I started as a Trainee Solicitor under the mentorship of now Managing Partner, Steven Greenwood.

“The Family Team and Stone King are highly respected and I am looking forward to new challenges and opportunities.”

Head of Stone King’s Family & Mediation Team Partner, Caroline Fell, described Jane as “a very well-respected lawyer” who the firm is “delighted” to welcome back.

She added, “Her addition will enable us to build on the excellent work we already do in many areas including care proceedings, divorce and separation, mediation, surrogacy, and pre-nuptial agreements.”

In addition to Jane’s appointment, there have also been a number of promotions at Stone King’s Bath office.

Hannah Brittain has been promoted to Senior Associate while Sarah Clarke and Simon Stone have been promoted to Associate Solicitor.

Hannah joined Stone King in 2017 and specialises in contentious probate and trust disputes.

She represents national charities, executors and trustees in connection with inheritance-related disputes among other matters.

Simon specialises in property-related issues including claims for possession, trespass, service charge disputes and commercial lease renewal applications.

Sarah works in Stone King’s Private Client Team, primarily in Older Client and Court of Protection work.

Ann Phillips, Stone King’s Chairman, said, “We are very proud to announce these promotions, all of which are richly deserved. We are committed to the development of everyone working in Stone King, as reflected by the number of promotions nationally. This has enabled us to build a very talented team across our office network.”

Stone King also has offices in Birmingham, Cambridge, Leeds and London.
