Frequently it is difficult to locate assets if they are hidden behind corporations or trusts. We have extensive experience in choice of law issues, enforcement and understanding camouflage arrangements.

International Property - Scenario Analysis Example #1

Mr & Mrs A had a home in England where she mostly lived. She and her husband owned a villa in Spain where he now lived. He had a pension income from his former U.K employer and about £500,000 with a bank in Jersey. Mrs A thought there was a trust involved. She relied on his maintaining her. He was about to receive perhaps up to £1,000,000 from a buy-out of his former U.K employer.

Our solution:
The short-term step was to apply to the court to freeze the payment from the buy-out. Then whatever happened beyond our control Mrs A was likely to be fairly well safeguarded. That probably would be enough to ensure that her husband would co-operate with the English Courts process of disclosure. It gave us time to fully locate the assets, and to advise on a sensible proposal to try to resolve the matter by agreement.

What our clients are saying:

‘MK’, London

Henry Brookman manages to combine his wealth of international law experience, a superb network of legal colleagues, and a deft personal touch in dealing with both clients and counterparties.On a highly sensitive matter spanning three countries jurisdictions, confidentiality and focus was maintained throughout the process. Upon requiring the additional services of a barrister, the colleague retained was prodigious. Equally impressive was the structure of the resolution provided ongoing discretion and maintainability. As a senior banker, in terms of return on investment, this was one of the best deals I have seen for some time.

I had an initial consultation and Henry was well prepared. He gave great advice and followed through quite quickly. He was very helpful.

Henry and team were most professional, considerate and efficient when handling the financial proceedings owing to my overseas divorce. I recommend their services highly. International circumstance was at first to me most daunting and confusing, given each country had its' own unique approach. Thankfully Henry was knowledgeable of the law on either side of the seas and able therefore to provide best guidance and reasoning to me which enabled favourable settlement!

I contacted Brookman to ask for information regarding the validity of an international divorce court ruling. They were very quick in providing me with the right information. When I had another question a few months later around children matters I phoned them again and after taking some background information and contact details they booked me in for a free telephone consultation with 1 of their partners Talitha Brookman. She spent half an hour of her time explaining to me what I could expect and provided legal advice. All was free of charge. I would not hesitate to contact them again should any matter become more formal and have to go through court. The service has been quick, professional and very friendly.

Highly recommend this firm. Having searched around different firms for advice for some time, I had a free consultation with Henry Brookman. He was incredibly knowledgeable about my complex situation, gave straightforward advice and empowered me to understand exactly how I need to proceed.

I recently had a free initial consultation with Henry Brookman via video conference. He was considered and meticulous in his approach and gave me well thought through advice. He followed this up with a letter in writing summarising the advice he gave me. I would thoroughly recommend his services to anyone looking for legal representation in a divorce.
