Robert Seabrook QC‘s wide-ranging experience crosses jurisdictions. In recent years he has concentrated on clinical negligence, medical disciplinary work and substantial matrimonial finance and property cases.
David Balcombe QC combines clinical and professional negligence and professional discipline work with specialist matrimonial finance work (including pre-nuptial agreements). He is an accredited arbitrator on the panel administered by the Institute of Family Law Arbitrators (“IFLA”) and conducts arbitrations of family financial disputes. To provide “early neutral evaluation” in such disputes he also conducts private Financial Dispute Resolution hearings.
