Matrimonial case with assets worth approx £1m
We represented our client in Divorce, Ancillary and contempt of Court proceedings. The matrimonial assets were worth approximately £1m consisting of various insurance policies, a trust company and the matrimonial home. After many years of proceedings this matter was eventually settled by agreement. We successfully arranged and co-ordinated a Financial Dispute Resolution type mediation, one of the first of these types of mediations in Jersey. We successfully negotiated the settlement and our client received over three quarters of the matrimonial assets, plus maintenance and child maintenance.
