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.
