Our expert ancillary relief practitioners have a long standing reputation as highly successful advisors and advocates in matrimonial financial disputes. A number of the team are recognised as leaders in their field in successive editions of the guides to the legal profession.
Issues relating to matrimonial finances are often complex and members of the team provide expert advice on cases involving company valuations, tax issues and trusts. They have a high level of expertise in ancillary applications where assets have been frozen of by the CPS and FSA; and are used to appearing in the High Court and Court of Appeal.
Barristers in this specialist group have particular expertise of representing high net worth clients, some of whom appear on the Sunday Times rich list. Due the highly sensitive nature of these cases, our barristers are often required to sign confidentiality agreements. Members pride themselves on delivering swift and precise advice with an emphasis on adopting a conciliatory approach.
Our barristers are also very sensitive to the significant impact that lower value claims can have on individuals. These cases often pose difficult questions, such as who should stay in the matrimonial home. We are equally adept at representing the interest of those involved in these types of cases.
