Relationship breakdown is inevitably stressful. It also brings a fear about the financial outcome and what the future will be like. Sadly, the apparent lack of clarity in the law can aggravate the situation.
Our family law specialists give clear advice on all financial aspects of divorce. We have a wealth of experience in the most challenging cases and routinely deal with high-value claims involving complex trust structures, offshore assets, significant businesses, inherited wealth, tax concerns and a broad range of international issues.
Negotiating a financial settlement is rarely straightforward: litigating a case almost never is. We take a pragmatic, realistic and commercial approach to our work. We are committed to achieving the best outcome, to reaching that outcome in the best way and protecting our clients’ privacy. We are among the most effective litigators in the jurisdictions where we operate and are well versed in all forms of non-court dispute resolution, settling a high proportion of cases away from the Courts.
We work with our colleagues specialising in trust law, tax, commercial litigation, company and property law across our offices, including international, when required providing a full service bespoke legal team which can deal with all issues that may arise. This also makes us a natural choice for trustees and other third parties who find themselves involved in divorce proceedings.
Our clients benefit from our expertise, approachability, understanding, realistic and focused approach.
