Settling finances for your needs and aims
A financial settlement is a legally binding decision on how you and your partner will divide your assets and wealth when your marriage or civil partnership ends. This can include everything from trusts, pensions and property portfolios, to shares, bitcoin and international assets.
With so much to consider, you need the best legal expertise, combined with a forensic approach to finances, on your side. Our technically-astute financial settlement lawyers have decades of know-how to reveal the true position of assets and income. They also bring a new perspective and energy to seemingly intractable disputes.
Going to court isn’t necessarily needed to reach a settlement. Our trained mediators and negotiators can help you get a rapid resolution. But if the answer lies only in court, you can have every confidence in us to represent your cause with confidence and determination.
