Our thriving family finance team are specialists in all aspects of matrimonial and family finance, from cases concerning modest assets through to high value cases involving injunctive relief, businesses, trusts, third party interests or international dimensions. We also have experts in property and chancery disputes between unmarried couples, same-sex partners or extended family, inheritance disputes, and claims relating to the maintenance of children.

As a team, we are supported by the relevant expertise of our fellow teams in Pantheon Chambers in areas such as employment, commercial disputes, insolvency and crime when required. We excel in those family finance cases where family law collides with other areas of law.

Chambers has dealt with many of the most difficult and complex matters related to financial disputes, including high value claims [e.g. YSG (YX) v. LYAG [2022] HKFC 44 & [2022] HKFC 114]. Our members are experienced across aspects of family finance, 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 enforcement e.g. Re AAR [2022] 5 HKLRD 583], overseas trusts [e.g. KCMA v. ABC [2021] HKCFI 3392], partition of property between spouses [e.g. Cheung Wing Kuen, Samuel v. Ip Chui Sum [2021] HKCFI 3162], financial undertakings [e.g. D, M v. D, R [2021] HKFC 171; [2021] HKFC 48].

Pantheon Family

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.

Our Ethos

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.
