        "a First-rate department, superb mastery of detail, but never losing sight of the bigger picture"
        – via Chambers & Partners and Legal 500

        You will need advice on the financial consequences arising from the relationship breakdown including dealing with all assets whether on or off shore, including property, business interests, pensions and trusts. You may also need advice to deal with issues relating to the children.
