1 KING’S BENCH WALK has, according to one source, ‘rather unusually, many silks and juniors who specialise in both finance and complex children work which gives the set an added dimension in many cases’. Or, as another puts it, chambers is a ‘strong set for children work’ and has an ‘excellent team of juniors who leave no stone unturned‘. Anthony Kirk QC represented the father in a complicated case involving an application for a care order in respect of a baby who had suffered catastrophic brain injuries. Also of note, Deborah Eaton QC is a hugely respected silk and is described as ‘a force of nature in private children proceedings’ and ‘the advocate whom her peers least want to find themselves against‘.
