Arbitration and other alternative means of dispute resolution are being encouraged in order to ease the pressure on the family courts. Internationalisation in divorce cases and civil partnership disputes are growing trends this year, as is a general decline in marriage, which has led to a natural increase in cohabitee disputes and demand for Schedule 1 expertise. Cross-border experts and those with combined money and children expertise reign supreme in the current market conditions.

β€˜Top-notch’ set 1 Hare Court has β€˜class-act’ silks and β€˜talented’ juniors.’ A cluster of Supreme Court cases feature on chambers’ roster, such as Vince v Wyatt, Radmacher v Granatino, Petrodel v Prest, and Agbaje v Agbaje. β€˜Nothing is too much trouble for the first-class clerks; Steve McCrone leads an able team, which is responsive and transparent’.

1 King’s Bench Walk provides β€˜leading experts across the whole range of family law, and the dependable clerks never let you down’. Members were involved in Supreme Court cases such as Gohil v Gohil, which gave definitive guidance on the law relating to the setting aside of financial orders, and Quan v Bray, which was a complex financial remedy case in the Court of Appeal.

29 Bedford Row Chambers β€˜cannot be faulted’. Heavyweight multimillion-pound matrimonial finance cases are the bread and butter of the set with members appearing in high-profile cases in the Supreme Court (Vince v Wyatt and Sharland v Sharland), the Court of Appeal (Ramadani v Ramadani and Prest v Prest) and the High Court (Appleton v Gallagher and Hopkins v Hopkins).

Queen Elizabeth Building (QEB) is β€˜just a fantastic set, where the barristers are wonderfully talented’. The high-net-worth family work undertaken by members spans tax, company and partnership, and trust law. Multilingual capabilities is also a feature of the set.

4 Paper Buildings provides β€˜a splendid service’, and β€˜goes above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome’. Counsel were involved in Ramadani v Ramadani, a Slovenian divorce case now being heard in the English High Court. The general trend of internationalisation of divorce and financial remedy work is at the forefront of many members’ practices.

1 Garden Court Family Law Chambers is β€˜an excellent set for children law but it is emerging for more family finance work nowadays’. Duncan Watson appeared in the Court of Appeal in Gadhavi v Gadhavi.
