Reaching a financial settlement can be the hardest part of divorce or separation, however big or small the sums involved. Every case is different and there is no single answer that works for all separating couples.
We plan strategically from the outset and think creatively to achieve the best solution. We will clearly set out realistic outcomes and will not artificially inflate your prospects. If a deal is to be done, we will look for the best way to achieve it.
There are many ways to resolve financial matters. We will explore alternatives to court and always try to work in a constructive, pragmatic and consensual way. When this isn’t possible and court proceedings are unavoidable, we will fight hard for the best possible outcome. We have a wealth of experience and between us, have fought highly complex cases across multiple jurisdictions, securing some of the highest ever paid settlements following a divorce. Our team has been involved in many high-profile cases, in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court.
Our clients come from all walks of life. Many have straightforward financial arrangements based around a primary asset, usually the family home. Others have more complicated arrangements, such as business interests, off-shore assets and trusts structures, or cases with an international dimension.
We have close links with other specialist law firms and professional advisors so we can provide seamless advice where issues involving trust assets, pensions, property and off-shore issues arise. In cases of suspected or obvious non-disclosure, we have the tools and resources to trace assets and to ensure financial claims are not compromised.
