A divorce is not only distressing but can have a devastating impact on a business owned by one of the parties. In the worst cases, this could lead to its sale.

Financial outcomes on divorce can be unpredictable, with the English courts having wide powers on divorce to make orders relating to businesses, property, pensions or trusts.

We offer a unique service to clients going through divorce or separation where a business is involved – whether sole trader, partnership or limited company – combining access to expert legal advice and to financial specialists.

Our asset protection specialists can advise you on the best way to protect your assets and business, for example through a pre-nuptial or post-nuptial agreement, an offshore structure, a trust or a shareholder or partnership agreement.

We pride ourselves on getting to the heart of the issues involved, quickly and cost-effectively, while always ensuring that your interests are protected. We will also give you expert advice at the outset of your case as to the likely outcome.

We recognise that each case requires a different approach and can deal with this appropriately, from collaborative law through to a robust approach in litigation.

Our family lawyers are top ranked in the legal directories Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners and are highly commended for client service in Chambers & Partners.

They are accredited specialists in complex business and property cases, in European and International Family Law, cohabitation and pensions, and are trained as collaborative lawyers and mediators. They are also fellows of the International Academy of Lawyers, giving access to expert family lawyers across the world.

All our legal team are also members of Resolution, the national organisation of family lawyers.
