Family - Care & Adoption

We have considerable experience in representing parents, children, relatives, local authorities, prospective adopters, step-parents, foster parents, officers of CAFCASS and the Official Solicitor in these proceedings and we are dedicated to providing a high level of service to all our clients.

We recognise the importance to our clients in maintaining consistency of representation throughout the often-lengthy and invariably difficult court process, and our clerks conscientiously ensure that this is achieved wherever possible. Solicitors representing any party in care or other public child-care or adoption matters are welcome to seek advice from us at any stage by telephone, e-mail or in writing.

We like to work closely with solicitors in preparing their clients for the hearing and outcome.

The Family Graduated Fee Scheme, which has substantial impact on remuneration in this area, does not affect our deep commitment to this field of practice at all levels of seniority within chambers.

Members have extensive experience in the following areas:
