Finances & assets

When a relationship breaks down, you’ll need to divide your finances and assets. Our divorce solicitors will help you settle things quickly and fairly.

We help you reach a fair settlement

Divorces and separations always have financial consequences. Often, these are complex issues made harder by the circumstances you're in. That's where we can help.

Our divorce solicitors will help you reach an agreement that works - quickly, fairly and with a minimum of fuss. We help couples agree how their finances and assets should be divided. We can help you agree:

  • how to provide continuing financial support, such as child maintenance
  • how to ensure you're both financially secure, possibly through a pension sharing agreement

Whatever your situation, we are here to help. Our expertise, experience and thoroughness mean we leave no stone unturned. We look at the whole picture and make sure you walk away in the best possible position.

Our aim is always to find the most efficient and cost-effective solution for our clients. We're open an up-front about our fees, and we'll keep you informed every step of the way.

We look at every angle

Our divorce work extends to several specialist areas. For example, separation can have a devastating effect on businesses. So a major part of our work is to review every relevant area to ensure you get the best result. These include:

  • Company, commercial and business interests 
  • Share options and long-term reward schemes 
  • Employment issues 
  • Wills 
  • Inherited and pre-acquired assets 
  • Trusts 
  • Tax planning 

We'll also help you with any pension issues that come up. They're often one of the most valuable assets people hold and must be part of any financial settlement. We'll look at everything, and make sure it's all included in the settlement.

We also have a lot of experience in dealing with the problems of divorce within farming families. We understand the subtle challenges of farming and always look for solutions that ensure a farm can continue to operate viably after a financial settlement.
