Welcome from the Head of the Family Group

St Philips Family is one of the largest groups of family law barristers in the country offering a vast breadth of experience and the highest ability in advocacy and advice.

Every family case is important; the decisions made by the court can affect the families involved for years if not generations.

Most are also complex.  Family cases involve looking backwards into the past but also into the future.  Whether involving finance, children, domestic abuse, care or adoption, or international issues, this double perspective gives rise to their complexity and challenge.

Good advocacy and advice are fundamental to achieving good outcomes.  St Philips Family is well equipped to provide these.

Good advocacy and advice require ability.  Our barristers are extremely able. Our clients regularly tell us so.  The legal directories and reported cases underline this.

We recognise however that ability on its own is not enough.  If we are to serve our clients effectively, we must also be accessible and approachable.

“St Philips Chambers houses expert family barristers experienced across a range of children and matrimonial finance matters. Their financial remedy capabilities include cases involving trusts and pensions, as well as those further complicated by tax and inheritance concerns. Members of the set provide both public and private children law experience, handling matters such as international child abduction, and allegations of neglect and sexual abuse.” – Chambers UK
