Our Family Group

Our Family Practice group is ranked and recommended by both Chambers Partners and Legal 500. Our large group of barristers, comprising over 60 barristers means that we are able to offer specialist, expert advice and representation in respect of the full range of family and matrimonial law.  We have members at various levels of experience and are accordingly able to offer advice and representation across a wide spectrum of family and matrimonial law.

We are acutely aware of the human side of family law and explore all avenues, including mediation,  to minimise the financial and emotional cost of disputes. We operate an out-of-hours helpline and our barristers will respond quickly to emergencies.

The group is especially well-known for its work in the public law childcare field, but we regularly work in all of the following areas of family and matrimonial law:-

  • Adoption Act Applications
  • Financial Remedies
  • Child Abduction
  • Forced Marriage
  • Radicalisation
  • Inheritance Act Applications
  • Private Law Children Act Applications
  • Public Law Child Care
  • Human Rights
  • Mental Health
  • Community Care
  • Asylum Applications
  • National Assistance Act Cases
  • Education
  • Provision for the Elderly
  • Registered Home Act Applications
