4PB are delighted to welcome Simon Rowbotham

3rd October 2023

Chambers are delighted to announce that Simon Rowbotham, formerly of 7BR, has joined 4PB with immediate effect.

Simon is an experienced practitioner in financial remedies following divorce and the dissolution of civil partnerships, and receives regular instruction in cases ranging from modest means to high-net worth, involving pensions, companies and trusts. His children work encompasses all areas of private law, including applications for child arrangements (both residence and contact), removal from the jurisdiction, relocation cases and issues of surrogacy and parental responsibility. Simon is also regularly instructed in cases concerning allegations of abuse and controlling and coercive behaviour, as well as cases involving substance misuse and vulnerable adults.

In August, Simon was appointed to the Family Justice Council as the Junior Barrister member for a three-year term.

In a joint statement, our Heads of Chambers, Charles Hale KC and Barbara Mills KC, said, “We are delighted that Simon is joining us at the beginning of another important year for 4pb. Simon is a recognised financial remedies expert as well as a strong children practitioner and so he was a natural fit for 4pb, complementing our teams”

Simon said, “After more than a decade of being inspired by (and learning from) the members of 4PB whenever I have encountered them, I am immensely excited to be joining Chambers. I look forward to getting stuck into this new chapter of my practice, working amongst (and still learning from) practitioners who are at the forefront of family justice”
