Our Family Team has expertise in all areas of Family Law:

  • Public Law matters are dealt with on behalf of parents, Local Authorities and Guardians. Members are on a number of approved Local Authority Panels, including conducting Court of Protection work. Particular expertise is available in “shaken baby” cases.
  • Private Law instructions include representation for parents with significant personality and learning difficulties, with an emphasis on developing a professional but empathetic relationship with each client.
  • Financial Remedy work is undertaken by individual members. This has included a number of technically complex farming and business centred cases.
  • The mediation Suite in Chambers enables multi-party conferences and advocates meetings to be held.
  • Public Access work is also undertaken
