Financial Settlements Advice

Financial settlements can be complex with family businesses, pension funds and foreign assets increasingly forming part of the 'matrimonial pot'.

If there is an international element to the settlement for example you own property in a foreign country then there is an even greater need to obtain specialist legal advice. Our team have acted for clients with assets held in different jurisdictions within Europe and further afield.

The Process of Financial Settlements

In England and Wales the process of dividing assets (including pensions and income) is discretionary. There is statutory guidance but each case is dealt with on its own individual facts. Outcomes can vary depending upon the particular circumstances of a case and no two cases are alike.

Our team of specialist family lawyers has a wealth of experience in resolving family disputes and, in the majority of cases we are able to provide you with an indication of the likely outcome.


Our Expertise

We work closely with pension Actuaries and Accountants where the need arises in order to obtain the necessary information required to progress your case in a cost effective and commercial way.

We are experienced in the process of identifying and quantifying each asset with a view to achieving a fair division within the framework of the legislation. Each case deserves a bespoke and personal approach and we can also offer client's the option of resolving their dispute by adopting a collaborative approach.

If your case needs to be resolved through the courts we adopt a firm approach to litigation keeping your best interests at the forefront.


For specialist financial advice from experienced family solicitors, please contact Samantha Hickman on 0117 314 5435, or request a call back.

Samantha and her team provided exceptional service in my matrimonial matter to make the process seamless and straightforward for all parties involved. I was constantly updated on the progress along each step of the way and communication with Samantha and her team was extremely professional and speedy. I would highly recommend their services as they have been some of the most knowledgeable solicitors I have worked with.
