The areas of work in which we have particular expertise, experience and excellence.
Deka Chambers boasts a team of specialist family law barristers. We have a strong reputation as approachable and conscientious practitioners who deliver excellent results.
Family law barristers at Deka Chambers offer advice and advocacy in all areas of family practice and regularly appear in the High Court and Court of Appeal as well as the lower courts. As members of a multi-disciplinary set of chambers our expertise is complemented by access to practitioners in other specialisms when our cases involve issues in areas of civil or criminal law.
We represent spouses, civil partners, local authorities (including London Boroughs’ Legal Alliance), guardians, parents and other family members who are involved in or wish to make applications in family proceedings. A growing number of our family law barristers accept work direct under the “Direct Public Access” rules. We also accept instructions from the Free Representation Unit on a pro bono basis.
Our team publish articles on the Family Law Week, LBLA and Local Government Lawyer websites, as well as on chambers’ website.
Members of the team regularly provide CPD training for professional clients on a variety of family topics. For more information please contact us.
