Harcourt Chambers is a leading family law set, awarded “Family Set of the Year” at the Chambers UK Bar Awards 2016 and is top ranked for both children law and family finance. 


Based in the Temple and in Oxford, it is home to six well-known family silks Nicholas Goodwin QC, Frances Judd QC, MCIArb, John Vater QC, MCIArb,  Damian Garrido QC, Aidan Vine QC and Edward Devereux QC and to 51 junior barristers, many of whom are acknowledged as leading practitioners in their fields.
