With β€˜exceptional practitioners’, 4 Paper Buildings has β€˜become increasingly stronger over the years’. In no break from tradition, the set appeared several times in the Supreme Court throughout 2016; five members were involved in the landmark case that determined the correct interpretation of β€œbest interests” in the context of transfer applications under article 15 of Brussels II Revised Regulation 2003.

1 Garden Court Family Law Chambers has β€˜strong counsel at every level’ and charges β€˜reasonable fees’. Recent work highlights saw Deirdre Fottrell QC leading Lucy Sprinz in an appeal to the Supreme Court regarding an application of EU regulation to the Children Act 1989.

1 King’s Bench Walk has β€˜tremendous strength in depth and provides probably the best mix of children and family finance experts in London’. James Turner QC was lead counsel in a case concerning jurisdictional issues of the Supreme Court, having previously succeeded on substantive issues regarding children order exceptions under Brussels II Revised.

29 Bedford Row Chambers is a β€˜go-to set that always has someone perfect for the job’. To complement its deep matrimonial finance practice, the set has a strong reputation in financial provision for children work, as well as handling surrogacy issues, sexual abuse allegations, relocations, abductions and jurisdictional disputes.

Coram Chambers is β€˜always a top-notch choice for general children cases’, where members have β€˜in-depth experience’. They are particularly well known for handling the children aspects of cohabitee disputes, adoption and abduction matters, and guardianship cases.

β€˜While not the largest family law team’, 9 Gough Square is β€˜certainly extremely expert in public and private children law cases’. Members’ strengths span radicalisation, non-accidental injury, international placement and sexual abuse cases.

42 Bedford Row is β€˜a fantastic set with really strong leadership from the clerks’ room’. Recent highlights include handling potential judicial reviews concerning which local authority should have designated responsibility for a care leaver from another authority.

Fourteen is β€˜a dynamic and forward-thinking set with very pleasant clerks’. The team acts for local authorities on placement issues and also handles private international proceedings.

Harcourt Chambers has β€˜great strength in depth’, and clerks who are β€˜without exception responsive, pragmatic and available’. Members have strengths in cases involving shaken baby syndrome, relocations and abductions.

The 36 Group is β€˜an excellent set’, where members have experience in complex Court of Appeal and Supreme Court cases, acting for local authorities and private individuals.
