Areas of Experience
Marital Status & Recognition of Foreign Marriage
Chambers has dealt with many of the most difficult and complex matters related to the divorce, separation and marital status. Our members are experienced across aspects of divorce and marriage law, often appearing alone against senior counsel, or lead by foreign King's Counsel. They have made new law and been pioneers in this area, in particular in relation to the status of forced marriages [e.g. Re M  4 HKLRD 476], recognition of Sharia marriage [e.g. Re M  4 HKLRD 476], divorce obtained by fraud [e.g. Singh Sandeep v. Adita Adila Afriani  HKCA 469], and recognition of same-sex marriages [e.g. Leung Chun Kwong v. Secretary for the Civil Service and Anor  22 HKCFAR 282].
Pantheon Family has the depth and breadth of expertise and experience to deal with the full range of family work through its main specialist sub-groups. From the most complex disputes to smaller and lower value ones, every case is treated with the utmost importance and respect. We also provide a full and bespoke out of court Dispute Resolution service which utilises the expert skills of our family barristers as mediators, arbitrators and through private FDR hearings. The expertise of several members is recognised by the most prominent legal directories.
We aim to provide the highest levels of service, with the emphasis on quality, approachability and accessibility. We aim to provide excellent and cost–effective advice and representation. We recognise the pressures that our solicitor clients face daily and the emotional pressures upon our lay clients. Our objective is to ease the burden on both.
As a team, we hold regular meetings and conduct in–house training to build expertise and excellence through shared experience. We also provide updating for our regular solicitors through our publications and lectures (in–house by arrangement – please contact us). Our publications are praised and much sought–after.
Many members of the team also blog on issues relating to family law. You will find links to their social media feeds on their profile pages.
