Practice Areas

Civil

KBG Chamber’s civil group provides an established team of dedicated barristers who offer a broad range of experience and depth in civil matters.

Our approach is to become an integral part of the client’s legal team. We have built and developed strong working relationships with our solicitors, who regularly instruct members to advise and appear at every stage of litigation. In addition to solicitors we receive instructions from other professionals via licensed access.

Traditionally the majority of our instructions originate from the South West. As the civil group has grown and developed, we have seen a dramatic increase of instructions for insurer client work from leading solicitors based all over the UK. These include Zurich, Royal Sun Alliance, Norwich Union and Post Office Insurance.

Members of the civil group practise in the following fields:


Crime

Members of the Criminal Group are also experienced in other areas of criminal and similar work such as courts martial, regulatory offences and cases heard by professional disciplinary tribunals.

KBG Chamber Criminal Group work encompasses the full range of criminal procedure and litigation.  We have particular expertise in murder, sexual offences and other cases involving vulnerable witnesses, offences of serious violence, serious fraud, corporate and financial crime, customs and revenue offences, drugs offences and money laundering work.


Family

KBG Chambers are a well-established Family Law practice group which deal with all aspects of Family Law matters, from the Family Proceedings Court to the Family division of the High Court and the Court of Appeal.

We are all members of KBG Chambers because of our commitment to social justice and civil liberties which lies at the heart of all children's law cases The inter-disciplinary expertise within Chambers is unrivalled. Having easy access to the expertise of colleagues specialising in immigration, housing, welfare benefits, mental health, community care and crime and being able to work closely with them in particular cases is an enormous advantage for us as a Family Team. Within Chambers there are top practitioners who are routinely consulted in cases that involve crossovers between family law and other areas of law, both as practitioners and as experts.

Members of KBG Chambers have been involved in some very high profile cases over the last few years and are regularly instructed in complex and serious cases, but are equally committed to cases in the lower courts where the outcome for the clients is equally significant. We consider that client care is extremely important, both in terms of going the extra mile for lay clients and working closely with solicitors on cases.
