1 KING’S BENCH WALK: ‘nail it for being the set that best combines top-quality money and children practitioners’ as well as those who ‘scale the heights in the intellectually highbrow family law/human rights jurisdictional disputes’. ‘One of the strongest children law chambers’ and ‘a major player’ for complex financial matters, 1KBW offers ‘strength in depth’ and ‘high-calibre’ barristers who ‘look after solicitors very well’. In recent chambers news, Philip J Marshall QC, immediate past chair of the Family Law Bar Association, was elected an honorary life vice-president of the association, and James Roberts QC took silk in 2019. Also of note, juniors Katherine Kelsey and Juliet Chapman have returned from their respective maternity leaves. Led by senior clerk Chris Gittins and deputy senior clerk Mark Betts, the ‘user-friendly’ clerking team is ‘better than any other set by a long way’. Nicola Cade, Tim Madden, and Chris Young are other clerks to note for delivering ‘excellent client service’.
