Divorce Involving Significant Assets

Written by Sara Plant

Divorces can sometimes be amicable with both parties reaching an understanding on how aspects of the marriage such as homes, child access and assets can be allocated in a quick and agreeable manner.
Many divorces however can turn in to bitter battles; especially when there are significant assets involved which both parties stake a claim to. Add in an allegation of infidelity and the whole process is not just painful and distressing for all concerned, it can be an extremely costly affair.
Where Peter Lynn and Partners offer a true unique skill is our experience of dealing with high value, complex divorce proceedings that require a combination of Family Law with Company & Commercial Law.
We have acted on many multi-million pound divorce settlements representing either the husband or wife and specialise in acquisition or protection for a range of high value assets including:

  • Education Funding For Children
  • Business Shares
  • Property Portfolios (both domestic and overseas)
  • Home Ownership
  • IP and Copyright Ownership
  • Investments
  • Partnership Agreements

We act sympathetically yet professionally and remain discreet at all times with a vast experience of acting for Sports Stars, Entertainers, Public Figures and individuals who require a low public profile when dealing with their divorce.
We also have access to forensic accountants, valuers, antiques experts, actuaries, auctioneers, land surveyors and other expert witnesses to ensure you have the right team to maximise returns and achieve a fair outcome.
Business and share allocation is another area of expertise where we have acted successfully for clients. Whether it’s a Doctor, Dentist, Lawyer, Accountant, IFA or similar, we have experience of protecting and accessing pensions, share options, assets and voting rights.
We also have a team dealing solely with Police Officers, Fire Service, Armed Services and are registered specialists at dealing with the uniformed sector.
