Finance

The team can assist in all areas that concern family finance from the straight forward division of marital assets to the complex dissemination of family owned assets on divorce (including overseas dynastic family trusts, family businesses, third party owned assets and international assets).

What sets the team apart from other family barristers is, firstly, our friendly, warm, client based approach; and secondly, our team consists of barristers who practise in criminal law and are able to assist in cases involving the police or CPS (such as where assets are subject of restraint orders or one party is subject to criminal proceedings).

The team covers the full spectrum of matters relating to the breakdown of a relationship, or married and unmarried couples and those in same sex civil partnerships. We also represent third party interests in the financial proceedings (including the CPS). The team can assist in arbitration, mediation, court proceedings or advice generally.

We have a proven track record in acting in family disputes involving high net worth and international individuals, disputes involving offshore assets, family trusts, complex tax structures, private and publicly listed companies, limited liability partnerships, landed estates, inherited and pre-acquired assets, and pre-marital agreements.
