"One of the best family departments in London. The firm as a whole provides a "Rolls-Royce" service, with particular expertise in cases with an international/multi-jurisdictional element"

Legal 500 UK 2017, The Clients Guide to Law Firms

Version Fran&cecedil;aisFRENCH VERSION / VERSION FRANÇAISE

There are important differences in the financial outcomes between English and French law (or the laws of other Francophone countries) in situations of separation or divorce. Clients often have a choice of where to bring proceedings, so seeking early advice is often of vital importance to the outcome.

We can advise on the laws of divorce and separation and all related financial applications.

We can advise you on:

  • the best jurisdiction in which to bring your case, and the race to court to secure jurisdiction
  • the applicability of pre-nuptial agreements and foreign marital contracts/ regimes
  • financial outcome as to capital, maintenance and other assets including pensions
  • disclosure issues
  • negotiating financial settlement
  • financial applications for the children of unmarried parents
  • cross border recognition of court orders
  • orders for legal costs, and funding arrangements
  • the right process for you – negotiated, court, or out of court mediation/ arbitration
  • child relocation issues arising out of separation
  • all other children issues arising out of separation

In situations involving cross-border issues we work closely with leading lawyers in France and other Francophone countries. We also work with recognised accountancy, real estate, and wealth management experts in London and abroad, enabling us to offer a fuller service to meet your needs. Where needed, we recommend therapists and other related professionals.
