We have particular expertise and skills to deal with divorces involving complex business and trust arrangements and extensive property portfolios.
Often the dispute centres around which of a couple’s assets are to be regarded as matrimonial assets available for distribution and those which should not be regarded as matrimonial assets and should be ring-fenced for the party who has brought them to the marriage. It can sometimes be essential to ensure that family and inherited wealth are not included in the marital “pot”. We have extensive practical experience of these types of dispute.
Our high net worth divorce solicitors will guide you through the financial remedy process to enable you to deal with the process with confidence and clarity. We will provide you with practical assistance to collate the relevant information and documents.
We can provide you with the legal support you need to achieve financial independence or to rebuild your financial status following a divorce.
Forensic Experts and Asset Tracing Expertise.
It is an unfortunate fact of life that when couples separate and divorce they are not always honest with each other about what they own or the true value of their assets.
We have close links with a number of investigators (many of whom were previously police officers) who are able to assist us to trace assets both in this country and abroad.
Sometimes a detailed analysis of the bank accounts of an individual is required to find out whether they have been secreting or deliberately depleting their funds. On other occasions, it may be necessary to look at the accounts of a business to determine whether there has been an attempt to manage the business in a way which would lead to the business being undervalued for the purpose of the proceedings.
We never accept figures at face value and are able to call upon the expertise of a number of forensic accountants to assist us with these investigations.
