Financial Claims in Divorce
“An expert team specialising in complex and high-net-worth matrimonial finance cases”
Legal 500 2021
If you are going through a divorce then it is likely that you will also need to resolve the question of how your finances will be divided. It is important to resolve financial claims at the same time as your divorce so that you have certainty for the future.
Financial claims can be made with respect to your capital, pension and income, and they can be made at any time, even after obtaining a decree absolute. To avoid potentially lengthy litigation, or claims opening up further down the line, it is best to agree and reach a settlement as early as you realistically can.
We can help you on matters involving complex trusts, tax and private companies with international issues. Whatever your situation, we will seek to reach a negotiation promptly and practically for you. Our family law team have represented clients in the High Court, Court of Appeal and Supreme Court, acting for successful entrepreneurs, professionals, international sportsmen and women, and other high net worth individuals.
