1KBW has long been at the forefront of matrimonial finance work and the development of the law, with members of chambers appearing in many of the most important cases in the highest courts over the last 20 years or more.
We deal regularly with high-profile cases and cases involving enormous wealth, complex and intricate assets and asset-holding structures, trusts and businesses, both UK-based and offshore. Likewise, we offer the highest quality representation to parties of much more ordinary means.
We also have many specialist counsel who regularly deal with cases involving trust of land disputes between cohabiting parties pursuant to TOLATA 1996 and also cases involving financial provision for children pursuant to Schedule 1 to the Children Act 1989.

Consistently recognised in the legal guides and at award ceremonies as a matrimonial finance set of the highest calibre, we are ‘the actual and future heavyweights of the Family Bar’, with ‘an impressive spread of expertise in complex matrimonial finance work’ – Chambers and Partners
