International jurisdiction disputes

The team excels at representing high profile individuals in cross-jurisdictional matrimonial finance disputes.

Chambers UK

We act for many international clients and have considerable experience in the issues that arise.  One of the most important of these is in relation to jurisdiction. 

If you have links with more than one jurisdiction, you may have a choice about where to have a marital contract, and to start divorce proceedings and any connected financial claims.  Where you pursue your financial claims can significantly impact upon your likely financial award and so can have significant financial consequences.

We will provide you with clear, concise and up to the minute advice about the options available to you so that you can make a prompt and informed decision.

With a partner as a main contact, you will always be able to talk to a senior lawyer about your case. They will assemble a bespoke team of specialists – both from within the firm and across the world – to deal with every aspect of your case. We have extensive contacts with law firms in the US, Europe, Asia and most other parts of the world.

No matter what jurisdiction we are working with, our approach is the same: to achieve a practical and clear resolution in the most cost-effective manner. We will always seek to resolve an issue before it reaches the courts, but should it get that far, you can rely on our experience and knowledge to guide you through the process.
