Chambers are sad to note the death of HHJ Byrt QC on 2nd January 2021. He was the Head of Chambers from 1975-1983 during which period chambers went from strength to strength and then he took his appointment as a circuit judge. He was a greatly respected and well liked barrister and then judge. Our sincere condolences go to his family.



The ‘remarkable’ 4 Paper Buildings is ‘simply the best stable’ of barristers who are ‘committed and passionate’ to children law, both domestic and international. With ‘a wide spread of barristers who excel in the field’, chambers offers ‘accomplished, expert counsel at every level of call and covering all particular niches’. Many of the set’s ‘stellar’ counsel are ‘absolute leaders in the field’ and there is also ‘a seemingly endless raft of very capable juniors’ coming through. Chambers’ matrimonial finance barristers are also ‘excellent’ and of the ‘highest quality’. The set is very approachable, inviting solicitors to share knowledge and welcoming in their dealings with clients.
