So, why use Spire Barristers?

Our existing clients will tell you: it’s because of our family law barristers “down-to-earth, accessible approach and always achieving the best possible results.”

“As the circuit’s only specialist family law set, it comes as no surprise that Spire Barristers is home to a strong contingent of experienced family barristers. Key areas of work include cases concerning non-accidental injuries, sexual abuse, accusations of coaching, and fabricated or induced illnesses.” – Legal 500 2020 (Family & Children Law)

“Spire Barristers’ Court of Protection team is particularly notable for its work in complex medical cases, often involving complex capacity issues or time pressures. One such example is East Lancashire NHS Foundation Trust v PW, where Laura Twist acted for the NHS trust seeking best-interest declarations concerning the amputation of a schizophrenic’s infected foot, which the patient opposed: the case was heard on the same day as the operation was recommended by clinicians, due to the 48-hour time limit needed to reduce risk of further damage.” – Legal 500 2020 (Court of Protection & Community Care)

“Spire Barristers, a specialist family and public law set. Counsel handle the full range of children law matters, including abuse cases and care proceedings, and reports a growth in instructions relating to alleged radicalisation. Court of Protection and matrimonial finance work are other core areas of expertise. The ‘excellent’ clerks are headed by Leigh Royall” – Legal 500 2018
