Melanie represented a Respondent in a complex matrimonial finance case which had been listed for a two-day final hearing.
The case involved a number of different assets including property, business and trust assets. There were also issues between the parties regarding their incomings and outgoings, earning capacity and housing need.
Melanie successfully negotiated a settlement which was very close to the Respondent’s opening position. As a result the two-day trial was vacated and overall costs were substantially reduced.
