Christopher Ferguson has specialised in family law for several years. His extensive experience in private and public children’s law includes representing parents, extended family members, local authorities and children via guardians, including the Official Solicitor and the National Youth Advocacy Service.

Christopher has organised and spoken at seminars on subjects such as contact, shared residence, domestic violence, the judicial interviewing of children, McKenzie friends, kinship care and the role of grandparents as alternative carers or in proceedings generally.
