We are a set comprising 57 barristers (including 9 QCs) and a highly-regarded clerking and administrative team of 16. Our barristers frequently appear in high-profile and legally important cases, and 33 of them are currently individually recommended in the main legal directories.
Reflecting our commitment to non-court based means of dispute resolution, 16 members of chambers are trained collaborative lawyers, six practise as mediators, six are qualified family law arbitrators, and three of our silks offer an early neutral evaluation/private FDR service.
Many members of chambers have authored or contributed to practitioner textbooks, and regularly lecture and write articles about family law topics. Several former members have taken judicial appointments, and many current members sit as deputy High Court judges, Recorders or deputy district judges.
We have 11 full-time clerks (including two dedicated fees clerks), a specialist chambers administrator, two receptionists and staff responsible for marketing and catering. The strength and breadth of that team allows us to provide the modern, professional and focused service that our clients rightly expect. The clerks’ room is staffed between 8.30am and 7.00pm, but emergency contact is always available outside that time and at weekends.
