4 Paper Buildings is a long-established leading family law set which has expanded rapidly in recent years to become one of the largest family sets in the country. Members of chambers are regarded as leaders in the field of family law.

The set: 4 Paper Buildings houses a friendly group of specialist barristers providing excellent, expert, commercial and practical advice, advocacy and dispute resolution services in all areas of family law. Alex Verdan QC is Head of Chambers, with great ambitions to lead the set to the very pinnacle of family law client service. Michael Reeves leads a highly experienced dynamic clerking team which is recognised throughout the Temple as one of the strongest and best-organised clerks’ rooms. Furhana Mallick, Chambers Manager, ensures that the operations of chambers remain smooth and efficient, so that barristers and clerks can concentrate on offering absolutely the best client service to those who use 4PB’s barristers.

Former members of chambers have gone on to be specialist and distinguished family judges in the High Court and County Court. Current members sit as Deputy High Court Judges, Recorders, Deputy District Judges and tribunal chairs.

Types of work undertaken: 4 Paper Buildings’ barristers are family law specialists. Members practice in the fields of divorce and civil partnership dissolution, jurisdiction disputes, financial remedies on matrimonial and civil partnership breakdown, disputes between former cohabitants, marital, civil partnership and cohabitation agreements, financial arrangements for children, protection from domestic abuse, international family relocation disputes, child abduction, forced marriage, public children law, public inquiries, radicalism cases, private children’s arrangements, surrogacy (national and international) and assisted conception, medical cases and court of protection work.

4PB is primarily known for its expertise in children law, whether public, private or international. Its reputation in these fields is pre-eminent. 4PB has a similar reputation for excellence in family financial work. The holistic approach of many of its barristers means that chambers is pleased to be able to offer an all-round service on family law matters so that the client receives continuity of representation in all aspects of their situation, with no artificial distinction between children and financial matters requiring separate counsel.

Many of the most complex, serious and sensitive family law matters arising nationally and internationally are handled by members of 4PB, who travel to assist clients all over the country.

Clients of 4PB recommend the set for its ability to provide a formidable array of talents at all levels of call in all specialisations of family law, ensuring a seamless team approach to even the most complex and demanding of matters.
