Full programme available here.


We have specialists in both Public and Private Law Children, Financial Remedies, Domestic Violence & Injunctions. The team comprises advocates that excel in their field with strength in numbers and expertise from Senior counsel to Junior members.

Members of the family team ensure they are approachable, and sensitive to the client’s needs.   We have excellent conference facilities in a central Brighton location and our Chambers are conveniently located close to the major family centres of Sussex.

With extensive expertise in Family Law, One Crown Office Row is able to pride itself both on client care and professional excellence. We are available for emergency applications and can normally accept instructions at very short notice. Our local practice gives us extensive experience and knowledge of local judicial practice.

“Fielding strong expertise out of its Brighton office, 1 Crown Office Row houses barristers operating across all areas of family law. Members are regularly instructed in both public and private law children proceedings, including relocation cases and care proceedings, as well as financial disputes in the context of divorce. They are also able to act in cases involving vulnerable clients such as victims of abuse. “The set is very well organised and reliable,” notes one interviewee, “with good strength in depth.”  “It is always a pleasure to do business with the clerks. They are professional but approachable, and will always go the extra mile to try to solve an issue and to deliver the best advice and information about the barristers available to take on a brief.” “I know I can rely on an effective transparent clerking service and can easily discuss fees with the clerks without any difficulties.” (Chambers & Partners 2020)
