’36 is a fantastic set that has quickly come into the consciousness of leading family law firms in recent years, in no small part due to their senior clerk Danny Chapman who has worked incredibly hard to attract the right blend of counsel to that set and to ensure that instructing solicitors know about them. Its star is well and truly in the ascendancy; a set to (continue to) watch.

‘Incredible team of skilled advocates.’

’36 Family has gone from strength to strength over the years. It is now one of the most well known and highly respected Chambers in family law in London.’

They are extremely competitive on fees.’

‘Fantastic team of clerks led by the incredible Danny Chapman.’

Danny Chapman’s relationship with solicitors is second to none. His dedication and honesty has got the chambers to where they are today.’
