Our Family/Matrimonial Services

High-Net-Worth Divorces with Complex Structures

The aim in all divorce proceedings is to get a fair settlement for both parties with the minimal amount of angst, disruption and expenditure. We have specialised in this area for many years and have a unique skill set for dealing with matters of this nature. As we have done it all before we know what skills to include, namely intelligence gathering, accountancy support, soft skills to assist the clients and because we are commercial litigators, hard skills including the ability to obtain injunctions, search orders and third party disclosure orders in extreme cases.

Breakdowns, Divorce and Separation

When relationships within families reach breaking point, emotions can run high and it can be a most confusing and difficult time for everyone involved. Sinels provides a calm dignified presence and welcome clarity in the most trying of family circumstances.

Financial Settlements and Ancillary Relief

In the process of divorcing a spouse, financial settlements can be achieved in a number of ways. One of these is negotiation and this can be done without applying to a court. If, however, there is no agreement, an order may be sought for ancillary relief. Sinels have represented clients (high-net-worth and not) in both scenarios - tough only if we need to be.

Mediation and Family / Financial Dispute Resolution

Family mediation is a helpful mechanism for the making of arrangements and resolving of financial disputes for families with regards to financial matters, whether it’s between husband and wife, parents or step-parents and children or grandparents. Sinels is trusted by families to advise in situations that are better suited to mediation than a lengthy court process.

Pre-Nuptial Agreements

It is well known that high-net-worth individuals who decide to marry often look for ways to protect their personal assets and to create stability within the relationship so that it might be possible to avoid future uncertainty, the expense of litigation and the intrusiveness of a legal process should things fall apart.
