Highly litigious divorce involving a multi-million pound payment claim
Matthew represented a husband in a highly litigious claim by the wife who sought a multi-million pound payment. The case involved arguments regarding offshore companies and trusts including consideration of whether the trusts were nuptial and/or a resource available to the husband. The husband also submitted that his pre-marital wealth together with the agreement he and his wife had signed prior to their marriage should significantly depress the wife’s claims. There was also a highly contentious issue regarding the standard of living enjoyed during the marriage. Ultimately the case was determined at trial in favour of the husband as the wife was denied both the quantum and the structure of the award she sought from the judge.
