Protecting a wife’s property portfolio

Corey acted for a wife who owned a large portfolio of properties prior to her marriage, as well as some further properties acquired during the marriage. After a short marriage, with little financial contribution by the husband, who had built up a substantial private pension, he brought proceedings for a share of all the wife’s properties.

With Corey’s representation, the wife retained the substantial proportion of her properties, and was awarded a pension sharing order for part of her husband’s pension. The husband was awarded a modest lump sum only.
