International Prenuptial Agreements

Ready to find out where you stand? Click here to get started

We have particular expertise in international prenuptial agreements which involve careful choices as to jurisdiction and law in an era of ever more EU and international rules.

We advise a range of international clients on prenuptial agreements (and postnuptial agreements), including families, ‘expat’ professionals, celebrities, high net worth entrepreneurs and individuals all of whom have foreign connections.

We are experienced in the delicate negotiations required to represent your best interests where international wealth and different cultures are involved.

We work with many international couples who are accustomed to having a marital regime which deals automatically with the way that they hold property as a result of marriage. Our lawyers will advise on the two key decisions: first, what is the right type of agreement (whether English or foreign) and, second, the correct drafting in this cross-border situation. This ensures that agreements have the maximum chance of being upheld in more than one jurisdiction.

We will work closely with foreign lawyers where necessary using our network of international contacts for your benefit.

Our team keep up-to-date with this fast developing area of law and our senior lawyers frequently give lectures to other family lawyers (in London and abroad) on the current state of the law relating to prenuptial agreements in an international context.

We also have considerable expertise advising on divorce cases where the couple have entered into a foreign prenuptial agreement or marriage contract and we can advise on the effects of such agreement and the financial settlement.
