Malek specialises in the law relating to children, in particular representing parents and children in cases involving care, supervision, secure accommodation adoption and of course child arrangement orders.

In July 2015, Malek was shortlisted for Junior Barrister of the Year at the Family Law Awards which recognise exceptional family lawyers.

He is ranked for family law in the trusted legal directory Chambers UK 2016 where it is said that:

“He knows his stuff and he’s on top of his brief. He is tenacious and puts his client’s case across well.”

“A very good advocate who is able to cut straight through the nonsense of a case.”

Malek regularly represents parents, children and local authorities in cases involving serious non-accidental injuries, sex abuse, physical abuse and neglect. He has particular expertise in representing families that are over represented in the care system such as ethnic minority families, Travelling families, those with disabilities and those with uncertain immigration status.

He has extensive experience in cases where parents wish to relocate with their children both within England and Wales and abroad against the wishes of the other parent.

Over the years, Malek has developed a practice of representing children who have separated from their Children’s Guardians and other very troubled young people, including teenage mums.

His skills lie in very thorough preparation and a forensic analytical approach to complex facts, evidence and the relevant law.
