St Ives Chambers is a leading set for family law. Its ‘heavy-hitting' counsel are rated for their ‘unparalleled experience' and they are a ‘safe pair of hands', particularly for public law children care cases.

Family Law Specialist Group

Members of the Family Law Specialist Group offer a wide range of expertise and a depth of experience in all areas and levels of Family Law. Members of the Group represent local authorities, parents, children and their Guardians in public law matters. In private law cases members' expertise includes representation in disputes involving married couples and cohabitees, their children, and child abduction. 

Whilst counsel are instructed for their advocacy experience in these specialist areas, the importance of advisory work is never overlooked. Members endeavour to return paperwork within a reasonable time and are available to do urgent work if necessary even at very short notice. Urgent instructions can be received by e-mail and a response can be given via the same medium.

The range of age and experience within our Group ensures that we are able to match our professional clients to the most suitable barrister. 

Many of the Family Group’s barristers are listed as Leading Juniors in both Chambers & Partners and Legal 500 directories. Several members of the Group also sit as Deputy High Court Judges, Recorders and Deputy District Judges.
