The Family Finance team at Becket Chambers specialises in matrimonial and family finance. We welcome enquiries whether the assets are modest (i.e. solely the family home) or high value, involving multiple properties and assets, businesses and overseas property.
Our Divorce and Matrimonial Finance barristers have considerable experience in dealing with injunctions to prevent property or assets being disposed of, cases where family businesses are involved, trusts, and of circumstances where someone other than you and your spouse has (or claims to have) an interest in your property. We also have considerable experience in dealing with injunctive relief and cases involving an international dimension.
