We are recruiting for family law barristers

February 1, 2021

We are keen to hear from excellent family practitioners interested in joining us as tenants. We welcome applications whether you are looking to move as an individual or as part of a group.

Our family law barristers are regularly instructed in complex and ground-breaking cases. And we have more work than we can cover.

If you join us, you can expect high quality cases, a diverse range of clients and a genuinely supportive and inclusive working environment.

About us

Our family group has more than 20 barristers. We are on an impressive list of local authority panels, act for numerous guardians and parents in care proceedings, and do a significant amount of private law work as well.

As a multidisciplinary set of chambers, clients benefit from our expertise in related areas such as housing, vulnerable adults, judicial review, or property law.

Indeed several members of our financial remedies team undertake property and general civil litigation. And some of our children law team undertake Court of Protection work as well.

Three of our family barristers hold paid part-time judicial roles.

Ten of our barristers are ranked in Chambers and Partners and Legal 500.
