In-house family law barrister

Silk is the only boutique family law firm in the North of England with an in-house family law barrister. Co-founding partner and specialist family and divorce barrister, Ian Kennerley, supports the team across all three of our offices in Leeds, North Yorkshire, and Newcastle. Ian was recently named one of Legal 500’s ‘Leading Individuals’.

Ian’s early involvement in cases ensures we can achieve cost-effective and expedient outcomes for our clients from the outset.

The independent legal guide, Legal 500, describes Ian as "a master of his art" and a leading individual in the industry. Clients remark on Ian’s "awe inspiring level of analytical detail", his "outstanding and faultless" service and "complete professionalism". Chambers UK have also said that "Ian is an excellent lawyer with a wealth of experience and attention to detail."

The close-knit and collegiate culture at Silk Family Law means that our whole team – from legal executives right through to experienced partners – supports one another across all our offices, in order to deliver a bespoke service tailored to each client’s needs. Our blended charging rates ensure work is done by the most relevant person at the right level to deliver the best value for clients.
