Kenworthy’s growing family team provides skilled advice and representation on all areas of family and personal law in all courts from Family Magistrates to the Supreme Court. The team are known for their excellent client care and tenacious approach to secure the best overall outcome for their clients.

Our family barristers have significant experience in both private and public children law, acting both for parents and local authorities in lengthy and complex care proceedings. Several of our members have previously worked as senior solicitors and in-house advocates at Local Authorities; bringing their experience to benefit in representing both applicants and respondents.

The depth of our team’s public law experience, combined with considerable experience in mental health tribunals, is the foundation of our growing expertise in Court of Protection cases.

Our family law barristers boast considerable experience in financial matters, and will advise on early settlement proposals, handle FDR negotiations or provide a firm fight at final hearing. We are also able to deal with property, landlord and tenant and chancery disputes between unmarried partners.

Members represent clients at all stages of cases, delivering first class service combining meticulous preparation and excellent advocacy with a sensitive, clear, approachable manner with clients. Niche areas of practice in which individual barristers specialise include TOLATA applications, cases concerning European, Human Rights or International Issues. The family team also have experience involving mental health or drug dependency issues and cases involving asylum or immigration.
