Legal 500 2015:  “KBW’s care work includes cases involving factitious illness and serious non-accidental physical harm. The set is also recommended for matters at the interface between family law and immigration, including forced marriages, and children cases involving removals from jurisdiction are another core area of expertise. On the financial remedy side, the set covers all aspects of divorce, cohabitation and civil partnership.”

The KBW Family team comprises dedicated, experienced and talented family law barristers.

Barristers who undertake child care work are experienced in cases of the highest complexity and sensitivity, regularly appearing in the High Court. We are routinely instructed in cases involving allegations of the most serious non-accidental injuries and sexual abuse.
We act in the full range of private law proceedings, undertaken on both a privately funded and public basis, including all Children Act applications and domestic violence and harassment matters.

The team deals with all types of ancillary relief proceedings with a particular emphasis on high value claims including those where business interests and wide ranging property portfolios are involved. Chambers is able to provide barristers with expertise in all aspects of divorce, cohabitation and civil partnership, including pension sharing and periodical payments. Members are known to provide realistic advice sensitively.

The team has particular experience in cases involving an international dimension, and can draw on specific expertise in immigration law. The team also includes barristers with specific experience in adult care, including Court of Protection work.

Team Head: Olivia Checa-Dover
