Nuptial Agreements

Pre-nuptial agreements are becoming increasingly common, particularly after the Supreme Court decision in Radmacher v. Granatino in late 2010.  They may still not be binding in English law, but there is now a presumption that the parties will be held to the agreement unless it is unfair in the circumstances.  We have a particular expertise in these agreements and their status in English law.  Many pre-nuptial agreements are international and the need for overseas advice and complying with local requirements in each jurisdiction is a vital element. 

Negotiating a pre-nuptial agreement in the run-up to a wedding is an added pressure which needs to be handled sensitively to prevent the agreement becoming the first step on the road to years of marital unhappiness.  Whilst our clients value our technical expertise and robust negotiation skills, they also appreciate the emotional support we provide during this sometimes difficult experience.
