The settlement on our client’s behalf encompassed foreign and domestic property, spousal maintenance obligations, pension entitlements and substantial inherited assets. We provided clear, concise and sound advice to our client in order to ensure a correct financial settlement was reached. This ultimately ensured that a clean break settlement was facilitated, thereby safeguarding the husband from any further claims being made by the wife in the future.

Our modern facilities and IT resources allowed us to communicate effectively with our client despite the geographical distance and time difference, through live-link consultations and regular communication by email. This assisted in providing for close consultation with the client at all times and ultimately brought about about the successful outcome to the case.
