Anna McKenna KC

Spear’s Review

A KC at leading chambers 1 Kings Bench Walk, Anna McKenna is among the pre-eminent family law barristers in the country.

Specialising in children law, she regularly appears before the High Court and Court of Appeal. She has an unrivalled depth of knowledge in areas including relocation, family alienation, domestic and international adoption and surrogacy, education, religious upbringing including cults, medical intervention and name and identity issues.

Her peers speak extremely highly of her attention to detail, her legal skill and her ability with clients. One senior solicitor said: ‘You can’t sugarcoat things, you’ve got to give the advice, but at the same time you have to be human about the way you do it. Where Anna really does excel is that she’s able to balance that humanity with quite cut-throat litigation.’ Another, while explaining her ability to carry her clients with her through planning stages to the best outcome, described her as ‘phenomenal’.
