At 1KBW we specialise almost exclusively in all aspects of family law, and we are perhaps the only chambers with a pre-eminent reputation for both matrimonial finance and children work. However, in the past many barristers specialised in other areas of law in addition to family law, notably criminal law and general civil work.

Clients highlight the set’s ‘breadth of experience’ and the ‘extremely high standard’ of its work
Chambers and Partners

We are proud of our history in this regard, as it leads to a continuing culture in 1KBW of a deep and broad legal knowledge and exemplary advocacy techniques. Some of our members continue to practise in other areas of law, either exclusively or in addition to their practice in family law.

1 King’s Bench Walk reopened on Monday 6th July 2020


1KBW is pleased to announce that, following a stringent risk-assessment, we began the process of reopening chambers from 6th July 2020. A series of measures are now in place to ensure the safety of all staff, members and visitors. We have been successfully working remotely during the lockdown period and a number of staff and members will continue to do so to ensure social distancing measures are kept in place, as per government guidance.


We continue to request that all client meetings be conducted virtually, where possible. We are fully equipped to carry on with client conferences via telephone or video link, on any preferred platform. Should you require to come in to chambers for a meeting, please contact a member of the clerking team so that bespoke arrangements can be made.
