High Value Divorces
High Value Divorces
The breakdown of a relationship and division of assets can be complicated at the best of times. However when a couple have built up substantial wealth, there can often be so much more to disentangle.
This is where the input of a specialist divorce lawyer with experience handling high value settlements can really help, to ensure you come away with the best possible outcome for you, your family and your future.
We regularly advise on a range of complex assets, typically:
- Property portfolios
- Investment portfolios
- Business interests
- Shares and share options
- Trust interests
- Third party interests
- Valuable pension rights, including final salary pensions, public sector pensions, armed forces pensions and self-invested personal pensions
- Overseas assets
However your wealth or assets have been generated – be it through running your own business, your career, investments, inheritance or even a windfall – we have the knowledge and experience to advise you on your entitlement and negotiate the way forward.
Often a team-based approach is needed to get the best result and as a full service law firm, we are strongly placed to act for individuals with complex financial needs. By instructing ourselves, you will have the advantage of being able to draw upon the expertise of not just ourselves in the Family team but also our dedicated colleagues in other legal departments.
